Victoria Gallery and Museum Delighted to With Hugely Successful Evening with John Head
The Victoria Gallery and Museum (VG&M) is delighted to announce the resounding success of the John Head concert on Saturday 8th December. The performance was part of Liverpool’s Long Night and took place at the museum’s Waterhouse Café.
Head, who has performed with local Liverpool bands Shack and the Pale Fountains along with his brother Mick over the years – is also known for collaborations with Arthur Lee and Johnny Echols’ hugely influential band, Love.
The two hour event, which started at 8pm, was precluded by refreshments from the VG&M Waterhouse Café. Head played in front of 140 people and the first set showcased his considerable talent for the guitar and was complemented beautifully by a flute player. In the second set he played with a drummer and bassist, giving a taste of some of the material that found so much success with the aforementioned bands in the 1980′s. It was a very successful event and the museum is looking at future possibilities during 2013.
With Liverpool’s rich musical and cultural history, the night drummed up some serious interest, especially for those that were involved with the ‘quiet rock’ scene in 80′s.
This event is just an example of some of the incredible events going on at the Victoria Gallery and Museum over the festive period. For example, on Wednesday 12th December there will be some lunchtime Christmas Carols being sung between 1pm and 2pm and the University of Liverpool’s School of Music will also be making an appearance.
There will also be some tasty Christmas Lunches taking place between 3rd and 18th of December.
These will run from 12pm to 3pm and a two course meal costs just £14.95 with three courses costing £17.95. The menu can be viewed by clicking this link.
