Isle of Wight to host acoustic showcase

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays over the weekend may wish to take in some live music during their stay on the island, with an acoustic showcase set to be held.

On Monday (March 26th), a range of acts will take to the stage at Quay Arts Cafe Bar to show off their musical talents to an appreciative audience.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the event is free to attend, which may make it an appealing way to spend an evening for those visiting the island on a spring break.

Doors will open at 19:00 BST and among the artists on the bill for the night's entertainment is 19-year-old Max William, who promises he has a punk rock spirit, even though he is from the Isle of Wight, while he says he will "play for rum".

Louise Jordan will also be taking to the Newport stage over the course of the evening and she is regarded as one of the best young talents in the country, so those who go along to the event on Monday night may be able to say they saw her before she hit the big time.

The Scores are going to be playing at the showcase as well, with the four-piece featuring a collaboration between vocalist/guitarist Bob Craig and vocalist/bassist Robert Carr, who have been working together on music for a number of years.

Doug Aldred and Paul Armfield complete the bill for the Acoustic Originals night, so there is sure to be something to please everyone who goes along to the show, while the bar will be open serving drinks and food throughout the evening.

Music lovers on Isle of Wight holidays this weekend could also head to the Sun Inn on Saturday night to see a live show by The MoonShiners.
