A Message from our man Peter Jenkinson at Music Sector Forum:
I was hoping to arrange a UK Music Sector Forum meeting so we can all catch up.
There is a good option at Liverpool Sound City – May 20th – 23rd where Dave Pichilingi has offered to host (22nd best for me), there is also Go North, Inverness 11-12 June and Doncaster Music Week (20th – 27th of March) and Great Escape, Brighton (14,15,16th May)
Please can you let me know if you plan to attend any of these events, or will be up for coming to Liverpool for a get together in May.
COLOUR Presents: Charlie Parr + Support Tuesday 24 February, 8:30pm The Victoria, John Bright Street, Birmingham COST: ?4
On Tuesday 24th February, Colour will host their first live music event in Birmingham, following on from several years of success in Wolverhampton. Headlining the event will be renowned Minnesota folk-blues artist Charlie Parr. It will take place at The Victoria, a recently refurbished Victorian pub at the heart of the city centre.
Charlie has toured the UK several times before, astounding audiences with his contemporary take on American musical tradition. His rousing, heartfelt songs speak plainly of the darker places ordinary folks often lose themselves and of the hope that gets them through.
Lawrence Matkin of The Irish Times said:
“This is music that pulses and breathes, rhythms that sway heavy and deep, like fruit swung low on an autumnal tree; music that utterly captures the America of shunting trains and rolling plains, of home-made hooch and Piedmont blues.”
Charlie counts among his fans Alan Sparhawk of Low and comics legend and aficionado of the blues, R. Crumb. He is touring in support of his new album Roustabout, which is released on 17 February on Misplaced Music.

As well as stunning live music, the event will also feature Colour’s distinctive hosting style, with projected vintage slides, homemade cakes and DJ sets featuring folk, Americana and leftfield indie new and old.
