Northern Soul is at the forefront nationally and now gaining a worldwide following.
The term ‘Northern Soul’ was first coined by journalist and American R+B expert Dave Godin. This music and dance movement emerged in the late 1960s. It is based on a particular style of black American soul music with a heavy beat and fast tempo
When you hear this type of music for the first time, you immediately relate to the lyrics and the uplifting melodies. Many of these records should have been chart hits but unfortunately, due to limited budgets they sank without trace!
That is until the explosion of ‘The Northern Scene‘ when passionate collectors and DJs travelled to America and discovered the wonderful 45’s on labels performed by artists who amazed with their talents.
Over 46 years later, the Northern Soul scene is bigger than ever with this distinctive, emotional music now showcased in many iconic venues throughout the UK.
Don’t delay, grab your tickets before they’re gone!
