Sizzle, Song & Standup – Festival 31 Freedom BBQ

For this special edition of “Soup, Song & Standup” we’re joining forces with Festival 31 aiming to break down cultural barriers with food and music – pleasures shared by people around the world! “Sizzle, Song & Standup” provides a platform for Liverpool’s diverse communities to meet, eat and enjoy great music.

Food and music are at the heart of “Sizzle, Song & Standup”. We have hooked up with guest chefs Nesrin and Ghena, who will dish up specialities from their home country Syria. Other fare will be served straight from the BBQ as well as treats from the continent for those with a sweet tooth.

The event kicks off at 3pm with a set by Festival 31 stalwarts Liverpool Socialist Singers.  Next up are Duo Anwar Ali on oud and Dave Owen on acoustic guitar. Anwar, once a refugee himself from the Bajuni islands off the Somalian coast, and Dave from Oswaldtwistle, met in Liverpool at a charity gig and have delighted audiences with their unique blend of life-affirming music for four years. Rounding off the bill are Radio Exotica , who will dig deep into their treasure troves and take the audience on a tour of tunes around the world.

And with the help of Madame Crochet, the event will also be a feast for the eyes … see for yourself 🙂

Everyone’s welcome! See you on 17/07.
