Acoustic Revolutionaries, Huddersfield’s bi-monthly programme of acoustic music organised by The Media Centre, is launching a new website featuring live recordings from over thirty bands and musicians who have performed at the popular event. What’s more, users can download their favourite tracks absolutely free, to listen again at their convenience.
Acoustic Revolutionaries, based at The Media Centre’s Café Ollo, has been running since March 2007 and since then has grown to be a premier showcase for young Kirklees-based musicians aged between 16 and 25. The concept was devised by Programme and Marketing Manager for the Centre, Clare Danek; the events are organised and delivered by local music successes Ruby Wood and Noah Burton. Performers have included local hip hop heroes Extra Curricular, the award winning human beatbox Ball-Zee, accomplished jazz guitarist Graham Garside, and a host of other musicians from bluegrass in the west to world music from the east.
Danek said, “Acoustic Revolutionaries has grown to be an established feature in the local events calendar, and the new website gives more people chance to hear great bands and musicians. It’s great that The Media Centre can support talent in this way.”
The website can be found at www.acousticrevolutionaries.co.uk and the next Acoustic Revolutionaries night takes place at Café Ollo, The Media Centre, on Wednesday 19th October.
