Manchester's legendary Picnic Club celebrates 10th anniversary!

Thursday 30th March 2017: Picnic Club at Fuel Bar, 448 Wilmslow Road, Withington, Manchester M20 3BW, 8pm adm free. 10th Anniversary Special featuring The Good Intentions, Quiet Loner, Risa Hall, and Picnic Area. Yes we've been going 10 years - incredible really, the longest running acoustic showcase in Manchester, and we're celebrating in style with some of the very best acts that have played here!

Liverpool-based country band The Good Intentions have won a string of awards, including Best Americana Act of the Year 2011 in the British Country Music awards. In addition to acclaim for their albums “Poor boy”, “Someone else’s time” and "Travelling companion", they have also received national television coverage. 
Neil McLeod in R2 magazine has written: "Liverpool-based husband and wife duo R Peter Davies and Gabrielle Monk deliver Americana filtered through a cold, dark English fireside, drink-infused lullabies that sound composed and sung while sipping on pints of bitter rather than shots of bourbon. “The Long Unbroken Line” (latest album) is a fitting soundtrack to a metaphorical dustbowl Britain of 2016." http://www.thegoodintentions.co.uk/ 

Quiet Loner aka Matt Hill is one of the best loved figures on Britain’s new country scene, and his songs of infidelity, murder, suicide, as well as social comment transcend the limitations of the genre. “Secret ruler of the world” became Americana UK’s album of the year for 2004, and he has followed this up with the acclaimed “Spectrology”, as well as ”Greedy magicians”, a live album of protest songs. He has played the protest stage at Glastonbury – at Billy Bragg’s request! – as well as being one of the leading lights behind the “We Shall Overcome” nationwide musical protest at the government’s austerity policies. http://quietloneruk.wordpress.com/ 

Risa Hall is the one genuine American on the bill, having grown up with The Ramones in Forest Hills, NYC. Her music is an intoxicating mix of pop, soul, jazz and country, and recent album “Love is telepathic” has received excellent reviews. https://www.reverbnation.com/risahall 

Lovable alt country hedonists Picnic Area already have two well-received studio albums behind them. As well as heading in more of a powerpop direction musically, their recent songs are influenced by the political state of Britain and the world in 2016/17. https://picnicareamusic.wordpress.com/

Admission is free but we'll do a collection towards The Good Intentions' travel costs from Liverpool.
