BBC Introducing Merseyside has announced the 10 acts for the BBC Radio Merseyside Made In Liverpool stage at the Mathew Street Festival.

The Williamson Square show on 26 August will feature soul singer Esco Williams and skiffle group The Hummingbirds.

Introducing presenter Dave Monks said it would be "a great opportunity for local bands to play in front of a large home crowd".

The performances will begin at 12:00 BST and run until 18:00 BST.

The presenter said the bill was one of "up-and-coming and local artists playing original material [and] a chance to see great emerging Merseyside artists and show them support".
