What an enjoyable night at this years 'Love Live Music On The Waterfront'
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

THIS years on the Waterfront concerts where held under nearly fully blue sky, but it was the Saturday Night Show, on the 23 July 2013, that was the major draw. We headed on down to the Pier Head to see this fantastic show take place… With the choice of music that had been picked, the audience tended to be middle aged, so the atmosphere this year was very calm and relaxed. But it was not just model aged people who just enjoyed the live performances, as all ages mixed successfully, under the historic three graces as the sun set over the river Mersey. This was a well organised and well planned event as you now expect from Liverpool. The end had a very well synchronised firework display, illuminating the sky just off to the left of the massive stage. Performing on this warm, and for this year, unusually dry night where The Christians, Lighthouse Family's front man Tunde Baiyewu, Jack Savorett, Nell Bryden, Katie Melua and Thea Gilmore. But taking the top billimg for the 2nd 'Love Live Music On The Waterfront' where Brit award-winner KT Tunstall and the classical artist Russell Watson. The 2 nights followed on from Smooth Radio's series of 'Love Live Music' concerts, and they did a fantastic job of getting such a good list of artists down to play at this free event. Praise has to also go to Liverpool City Council and to the other supporters Cammell Laird and Typhoo, as with out them this event would not have happened. We think we can say for everyone who went that this was a highly successful and entertaining night. Well done to all the acts and a big thank you to them and the organisers! But did you know that round 2 is still to come of this fantastic waterfront event as it returns later in the year over and 8 September to 15 September 2013.
