Manchester’s own retro-folk singer Liz Green heads up the International Anthony Burgess Foundation this Saturday for an exclusive solo piano show ahead of the release of her second album. Having just finished recording the follow-up to 2011’s acclaimed O, Devotion!, Liz will be showcasing some of the songs from her new album, which she conveniently wrote on the piano. Fusing blues-inspired folk with her deeply eccentric persona, Liz is renowned for her live performances, often featuring shadow puppets and alternative fairytale-style storytelling. Support comes from Berlin-based songwriter Stephen Burch, aka The Great Park, whose intimate folk songs are dripping with melancholic introspection. With the venue seating just 70 people – and only a handful of tickets left – best book ahead for this special show now before it sells out.

Sat 22 Jun, International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Engine House, Chorlton Mill, 3 Cambridge Street, M1 5BY, 7.30pm, £6.50,
