Hereford Live: Launch event tonight at The Jailhouse
5:10pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
THE launch of an initiative that aims to put Hereford on the live music map is to take place at The Jailhouse tonight (Wednesday September 25).
The initiative – Hereford Live – plans to publicise the best in live music events across the county, and ensure that live music events are well attended by a community of music lovers often heard saying they’d like to see more live music in the region.
Tonight's launch night will include main room performances from Red Room Therapy, Screwfaze and Line Runners.
The beer garden will be home to a more mellow tone with acoustic and blues artists performing, including Jennifer Booton, who recently performed at Nozstock and Arthur Mills and the Black Eyed Fridays.
“Hereford is no stranger to bestselling artists; bands from the Rolling Stones, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics and The Beautiful South, to Pulp, James, Two Door Cinema Club and The Wombats have played in Hereford over the years,” said Anthony Murphy of The Jailhouse.
“Some of them played in the county during sell-out tours, others have played to small groups of people before they were signed or became household names.
“There are some incredible artists in Herefordshire, many of whom are destined for great things. We want to get as many people as possible to support the live music scene we have in Herefordshire – not only will they be seeing the talent of tomorrow now, it will help us to stage bigger events in the future too.
“Hereford Live is ensuring that venues can join us free of charge, with no catches; we’ll help to publicise their events and work with them to put on more in the future.”
Entry to launch night is strictly 18-plus and ID may be required.
