A celebration of Liverpool’s mighty river and that which straddles it, Caught by the River Mersey will take place at The Social, Little Portland Street, on Wednesday 17 January. The programme features:
A rare screening of You’ll Never Walk Alone, the cult Liverpool-centric documentary made for French television in 1992, with appearances from Ian McCulloch, Michael and John Head of Shack, Edgar Jones and many other ‘faces’ from the city’s music scene;
A screening of Passing Tides – Roisin Burns’s short film which follows Bill Ryder-Jones (ex of The Coral) around his native Birkenhead;
An In Conversation hosted by Ted Kessler, featuring Roisin and Bill, as well as JD Beauvallet and Paul Fitzgerald, who both appear in You’ll Never Walk Alone.
MC duties, as usual, fall to John Andrews, whilst Diva and Daisy of Caught by the River/Heavenly Recordings are prepped to man the decks.
Tickets cost £7 in advance (+ booking fee) and are available here.
