This April, we're honoured to be playing the inaugrual Liverpool Against Racism festival, and we're looking forward to our imminent return to the Everyman on Thursday 28th April... please read on for details of both shows, and more.
We're back at the Everyman on Thursday 28th April.
MELLOWTONE | DOWNSTAIRS AT THE EVERYMAN
with live music from:
- The Pelican Band
Spoken word from Sam Batley
& DJ Richie Vegas
The Pelican Band
Songwriting duo Sean Butler (Sonic Hearts) and Andy Campbell (previously of The Tenements) create beautiful music, like Sparklehorse mixed with the Everley Brothers. Country inspired, folk inflections, and delivered through a Wirral Instagram filter. Live, they play with members of Eyesore and the Jinx and the Loose Moose String Band. Their aim? To sound like a beautiful death.
Ex-Sniper for the Salvation Army. These are words from the electric stairs and the night bathing Siglow’s morning. Hung, drawn and quartered. Pocket editions not available.
Irish songstress and music-maker Muireann has been lending headturning vocals, influenced by her County Wicklow heritage, to the bands of Liverpool, the North West & London for the last decade. Muireann is also a familiar face at Mellowtone, as co-songwriter and vocalsit for Irish rock and soul outfit, Seafoam Green, who are back on the road very soon. Now, she embarks on a solo adventure of her own...
DJ Richie Vegas
Richie Vegas cut his DJing teeth in his late teens - messing about with hip hop and breaks - before plundering his family’s record collections and forging a sound that includes soul, funk, jazz, afrobeat and reggae.

WILDFLOWERS ARE COMING TO PRINCES PARK, LIVERPOOL
We're helping out with Mandela 8's wildflower seed sowing events in Princes Park, Liverpool, this April. After last year’s colourful, rich display on our Mandela Fields of Hope, helped along by willing children and local growers, more perennial wildflowers like Red campion, Viper’s bugloss and Wild carrot will come through this year. These events will help enriching the mix with more sunflowers and biodiversity, for the enjoyment of bees, pollinators and us humans. At the sowing events with Scouse Flower House, music will accompany the sowings, to soothe the seed into the ground...
