'One man, one guitar and a voice sent express mail from Heaven’.... Time Out

Long hailed as one of Ireland's leading songwriters and performers, Kieran Goss’s music has won him fans across the globe. But if his songs have made him a star, his live shows have made him a legend. Live on stage is where Kieran Goss really shines.

“The sense of fun is tremendous, the playing first rate and the songs are sheer quality. The encores were genuine, but only because the man is too.” The Irish Times

“Kieran Goss is one of the most gifted performers around today. He has an amazing ability to reach out to his audience and connect with them in a very special way. This guy is the real deal, and that's what makes him the star he is.” Don Williams

"I've toured with Kieran and watched him perform many times. I've seen him win the hearts of everyone in the room, not just with his great songs and instinctive musicality, but with his warmth and humour. It's the performance of an artist at the top of his game, delivered with intelligence and integrity... Kieran Goss is one of Ireland's national treasures.” Rodney Crowell

This is a rare chance to see Kieran performing live and solo. Don’t miss it!

Astral Coast Festival
Astral Coast Festival
Saturday 19th July, from 3:00pm until Late.
A £1.00 booking fee applies on each ticket
Tickets will be more on the day!

In its brief history, Astral Coast has quickly established itself as one of the premiere new music festivals on Merseyside. Bringing together the region’s most exciting emerging artists with established Merseyside headliners, Astral Coast offers a unique day of live music in the Wirral’s foremost live music venue, New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion.

In the previous two years our headline acts have included Domino records and Deltasonic recording artists. As well as MOBO award winners and NME favourites. We have also showcased some of Merseyside’s most exciting up and coming acts some of whom have gone on to be critically lauded by both local and national press.

ASTRAL COAST takes place at The Floral Pavilion, New Brighton on 19th July 2014.

The first lineup announcement is finally here! Its set up to be a special day, award winning headliners, nationally recognised recording artists and the very best emerging talent which the Merseyside music scene has to offer.

This year’s headliner comes in the shape of one Merseyside’s greatest living composers; Bill Ryder Jones. The former Coral man and recent Arctic Monkeys guitarist needs little introduction. With a wealth of critical acclaim heaped on his two solo albums (both released via Domino records) and production credits with the likes of The Wytches, Bird and Wirral’s own By the Sea, it is safe to say he is in a man in demand. With song writing credits on Arctic Monkeys critically lauded ‘A.M’, Bill is firmly at the heart of contemporary music. His performance at this year’s Astral Coast, is certain to be the peak of Merseyside’s summer musical calendar. Not one to be missed!

With their debut album ready to drop at any second, The Tea Street Band look set to take 2014 by storm. Their status as Merseyside’s ultimate good time band has long been established and with recent shows throughout the United States and support slots with Manchester legends The Charlatans and Inspiral Carpets they will be certain to provide the perfect soundtrack to close the festival. What better way to take in their rave tinged guitar pop than on a sunny day in New Brighton. In the words of the band themselves; ‘push the feeling on’.

Last year’s headliners By the Sea, return to the Astral Coast stage as they ready the release of their second album, following a triumphant year. Through a series of sell out headline shows across Merseyside as well as support slots with the likes of Wild Nothing, Cloud Control and our headliner Bill Ryder Jones, By the Sea have established themselves as the founders of Merseyside’s dream pop renaissance. Their debut album received wide spread critical acclaim from the likes of NME, Q and Uncut as well as regular airplay on BBC 6 music. Astral Coast will provide a rare opportunity to catch the band on home soil – we strongly recommend you take it.

Limehouse Lizzy
Limehouse Lizzy
Saturday 27th September, 8:00pm
Tickets £16.00*/£14.00* (conc)

Please note that this is an all standing gig

*Plus a £1.00 per ticket booking fee (maximum £8.00)

Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest & most popular performers. They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.

Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away last year.

Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing have led to their performance being described as “beyond tribute”, by both audience and critics alike.

Following the enormous success of their ˜Live & Dangerous” & ˜Dedication” tours, the band embarked upon their “Into the Limelight” tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2’s ‘Arena’ documentary series of the same name.

The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at a rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.

In 2014 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott. This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.

Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like ”Whisky in the Jar” and “Black Rose”, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Sarah” and many others we’ve come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.

Midge Ure
Thursday 30th October, 8pm
£16.50* / £14.50* conc
£18.00* on the door

Midge Ure has shape-shifted his way through the UK music scene for over 35 years. From boy band prototype Slik and electronic pioneers Visage, to chart toppers Ultravox and charity fund-raising with Band Aid; Ure has adapted to the ebb and flow of his career.

With his solo acoustic shows, Midge sticks to his mantra that a good song can be stripped down to its basics and still stand close inspection.

The Lindisfarne Story with Billy Mitchell and Ray Laidlaw
Friday 31st October, 7:30pm
All tickets £18.50*

*Plus a £1.00 per ticket booking fee (maximum £8.00)

Lindisfarne was Tyneside's best-loved band for over thirty years and The Lindisfarne Story is a celebration of the group's music and achievements. The show is devised, written and performed by drummer/founder member Ray Laidlaw, and Billy Mitchell, front man for the final eight years of the group.

Ray and Billy perform acoustic versions of Lindisfarne's classic songs and tell the inside story of the group's rise to fame, from Whitley Bay to Frisco Bay, from Rothbury to Glastonbury. They describe the group's early days on Tyneside in the 1960's hustling for gigs and their rise to fame in the early seventies.

The show is illustrated with archive photographs and video and describes their worldwide tours, festival successes and TV appearances, their triumphant return home and their unique relationship with Newcastle City Hall, venue for over 140 Lindisfarne performances. Lady Eleanor, Meet Me On The Corner, Fog on the Tyne, Run for Home, all of these songs have a story behind them. Enjoy hearing them again in an intimate venue and discover what was the inspiration behind their composition.

You'll hear how the classic songs developed and how Bob Dylan's producer helped Lindisfarne to focus their musical ideas and burst through the glam and manufactured sounds around them to become one of the major British groups of the seventies.

In 2014 the appeal of Lindisfarne is as strong as ever, EMI recently released a 40th anniversary vinyl version of the 'Fog On The Tyne' album and the in 2014 the band will be honoured on Tynesides's 'Local Heroes Walk of Fame' along with Alan Shearer, Sting, Clement and La Frenais and others who have raised the profile of the North East of England all around the world.

The Lindisfarne Story has captured the imagination of the fans and media.
