City's top 'unplugged' artists to perform at three-day festival
BRISTOL'S three-day Acoustic Music Festival makes a triumphant return to St George's Bristol from Friday, January 18, celebrating its 10th anniversary with an impressive programme of local talent.
The festival, which is programmed by Steve Parkhouse of Jelli Records and raises money for The Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal at Bristol Children's Hospital, showcases the breadth and diversity of Bristol's unplugged music scene.
As well as featuring Jelli Records' own artists, Bashema and 17-year-old Danielle Celeste, the festival will feature performances from musical acts as diverse as folk favourites Bristol Shantymen to the energetic ska-funk explosion that is Magnus Puto.
Other highlights include Bristol's Queen of jazz, funk and soul, Lady Nade, and the exotic feel-good four piece, Poppy Perezz. New this year is the Taylor-West Classical String Quartet, who will be performing in St George's Crypt as people arrive for the festival on the opening night.

Steve Parkhouse has been involved with the festival from its inception and has seen it grow into one of the most eagerly anticipated events on Bristol's musical calendar. He said: "For the 10th anniversary we have put together a line-up that features a few old friends who have played before and a lot of new upcoming local acts including harpist Elly McCabe and the amazing guitarist Lewis Creaven. We are very excited about the programme and it's sure to be a great weekend."

From Sunday until Friday, January 18, the shop will hold live BCfm radio broadcasts, live music performances, artwork from Drawn In Bristol and more. Festival tickets will be available in the shop.
