National charity Music and the Deaf presents their annual concert, celebrating another year of work enriching the lives of deaf and hearing children and adults. Featuring deaf musician Danny Lane, this year we’re delighted to also welcome Barbieshop as special guest performers!

Barbieshop

Barbieshop are a Liverpool-based female a cappella trio who bring a whole new take on close harmony, performing a variety of styles; from The Andrews Sisters to Queen, Duke Ellington to Bugsy Malone, Radiohead to Bizet. Most of the songs are arranged by the girls themselves which contributes to their unique style and sound.

Alongside being invited singing at prestigious venues such as The Bridgwater Hall (‘A Little Bite Music’ programme), St George’s Hall (‘The Giants’ 2014 official opening), Warrington Parr Hall and Birmingham Aston Hall (both guesting with the Warrington Male Voice Choir), and various events at both of Liverpool’s cathedrals, the girls also regularly perform at various DIY indie/jazz/noise-core nights, burlesque and cabaret events nationwide, boutique street festivals, theatres, parties & weddings.

Barbieshop also enjoy performing regularly for various charities and in the past have worked with the Rotary Club Liverpool, Marie Curie Cancer Research & the Liverpool Soroptomists Society.

The event will also feature performances by Danny Lane, Music and the Deaf’s CEO and a profoundly deaf pianist, who will also update you with all the important work we’ve carried out this year.
