Headlining and performing exclusive sets of their most popular and in demand Northern and 60’s Soul repertoire at The second Blackpool International Soul Festival are two of America’s all-time giants of R&B music: LITTLE ANTHONY will be performing a unique and very special show including Better Use Your Head, It’s Not The Same, Hurt So Bad, Gonna Fix You Good, Goin’ Out Of My Head, Never Again and more and THE IMPRESSIONS who’s exclusive show will include I Love You (Yeah), Can’t Satisfy, You’ve Been Cheatin’, I’m The One Who Loves you“, I Need You, You Ought To Be In Heaven, Stay Close To Me and more. For THE IMPRESSIONS this will be a momentous occasion–it will be their “farewell “ concert in the UK after almost 60 years, our last chance to salute their immense contribution to the music we love.
The Soul Togetherness team are delighted that rare groove and 70’s soul icon LEROY HUTSON will be joining us next June 16-18th for our second event. Leroy will be performing one number with a full live band on the Friday night. It will be quite a moment when for the first time in over 40 years Leroy is reunited with and shares the same stage together with The Impressions ! Then, on the Saturday night Leroy will be in the main Modern Soul room sharing with us all his most popular compositions – and all sounding stunning over the original studio quality backing tracks.
It’s a “last minute miracle” ! Now confirmed as our very special guest speaker for the Saturday lunchtime Q+A session in The Opera House , we are proud to announce that legendary American R+B songwriter and producer Mr GEORGE KERR will be coming over to promote his new book , “Hypnotised by music” . George will be telling us more about what it was like to work with artists including Linda Jones , The O Jays, Alice Clark , The Skull Snaps and so many more sensational artists, arrangers and producers such as Richard Tee and Sidney Barnes .
THE SECOND BLACKPOOL INTERNATIONAL SOUL FESTIVAL
We do ask that group posts are about or in someway related to The Blackpool International Soul Festival and have reluctantly agreed to stop posts about other UNRELATED EVENTS. We know the great members of this great group will understand this.
Our first event in June 2016 was a massive success with top DJs, plus amazing live sets from American soul icons Bettye Lavette, Bobby Hutton, Dee Dee Sharpe, & Gerri Granger, a ground breaking discussion session with Motown legend Mickey Stevenson.
