In January 2012, Band On The Wall’s Picturehouse Bar began hosting a fortnightly free acoustic night, showcasing the goldmine of unsigned musical talent in Manchester and the surrounding area. One year on, The Sunday Sessions has grown into one of the most well-established and well-respected nights on the Manchester acoustic scene.
With free open mic slots from 6.30pm and fantastic headline acts from 9pm, players and appreciators alike are guaranteed the best possible musical end to the week.
Sunday Sessions regulars will recognise Race to the Sea as the musical guise of Dan Peacock. Combining gentle, floating guitar with subtle yet beguiling vocals, Race To The Sea is guaranteed to soothe even the most ruffled souls.
The Kora Collective – Based in Salford, this ‘loose-knit group of musicians’ have taken hip hop to unchartered territory, by laying beats and lyrics over a bed of acoustic instrumentation including the 21-string West African wood harp, the kora. Exciting, innovative and energetic, The Kora Collective are unlike any ensemble you’re likely to see in Manchester, the Other City, or anywhere else for that matter!
