Liverpool Gigs: Signature Sessions Returns with I See Rivers & The Tea Street Band

On Wednesday 21 November, Signature Sessions returns with another unique live music event on the rooftop of The Shankly Hotel. This month we will be welcoming Tenby- based girl band I See Rivers, alongside the amazing Tea Street Band, in what promises to be one of the best Liverpool gigs this November.

Famous for bringing the city’s latest and greatest artists together to perform for free each month, Signature Live Sessions offers music lovers an incredible evening of cinematic music all set to the backdrop of Liverpool’s iconic skyline.

Curated and presented by The Farm’s legendary Keith Mullin, we bring together Liverpool’s most influential musicians, alongside our brightest new stars.

Liverpool Gigs: I See Rivers & The Tea Street Band

Following on from the huge success of the previous month’s gig featuring China Crisis and The Vile Assembly, we are back with two more outstanding artists.

Sure to be a highlight in the Liverpool gigs line up, we are welcoming I See Rivers to the stage, followed by the Liverpool favourites, The Tea Street Band.

I See Rivers originally hail from Northern, Southern and Western Norway, however they are now based in Tenby, Wales. The trio make music that is described as “Float Folk”, taking inspiration from Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens and Feist.

Their memorable melodies and far from traditional vocal harmonies make I See Rivers a unique band that sound even better live.

After a string of tours and festival appearances including Green Man Festival, Belladrum Festival and supporting Newton Faulkner on his UK tour, the band are now preparing to take to the rooftop stage in Liverpool.

After the amazing I See Rivers, a mystery headliner will be taking to the stage to end the evening on a high.  The popular local band are ready to showcase some of their best tunes and celebrate Liverpool’s ever-flourishing music scene in style.

Following I See Rivers, music lovers will be treated to an exclusive performance by one of the city’s best loved bands, The Tea Street Band. Having created a cult following over the years they’ve been together, the band’s music crosses over genres, taking inspiration from The Coral and the Happy Mondays.

Many of their hits such as, ‘Marseille Blues’ and ‘Only Love’ have become anthems across Merseyside, earning them a warm place in Scouser’s hearts. Originally formed from the ashes of much-missed rabble rousers The Maybes, The Tea Street Band have been clinically building up momentum since their first release, Push the Feeling On, playing carefully selected shows with the odd huge gigs thrown in.
