The Beatles were certainly the most famous of all Liverpool’s bands but the Merseybeat sensation hit the world stage in force in the 1960s. Liverpool’s bands included Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Searchers, The Swinging Blue Jeans and the Merseysbeat. In addition hit sensations such as Billy Fury and Cilla Black were Liverpool born and bred. The influence of American bootleg music hitting the record shops in Liverpool first, certainly made a difference and before long this insight into American Rock & Roll combined with local folk and religious music genres created the Merseybeat.

Liverpool has for many years had extremely close ties with the United States. Initially from being one of the main co-conspirators of the Slave trade, then providing funds and support to the war of independence. Then through two world wars . Shipping in Liverpool for many years not only brought great wealth and opportunity to Liverpool but cultural change. Bootleg records began landing in Liverpool port in the 1950s and so began the Rock & Roll revolution in England. Soon after great American musicians such as Buddy Holly came here to huge crowds and sell out performances. We will show you an historical link with the U.S which spans three centuries and which you will find enthralling. The visit will include the International Slavery Museum and the Western Approaches Museum.
Llangollen is a charming Welsh town in North Wales and is the permanent host for the annual International Eisteddfod music festival. The town became popular in the mid-1800s by holiday makers from nearby cities like Liverpool for its clean air and almost Alpine vistas. From here we continue to Powys Castle , once a medieval fortress then and grand home of the Clive family and notable Clive of India. The House and gardens are managed by the National Trust. For visitors with a little more time a detour to Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a must. This Aqueduct which carries the Llangollen Canal high over the River Dee Valley is a UNESCO world heritage site.
