Fay Jones has been in touch with news of her forthcoming Souldham 2 on saturday January 12th 2013. The highlight of the night will be the appearance of not one, not two, but three artists should guarantee a packed house.
Spyder Turner needs little introduction. His only appearance in this country to date was for a private event. With Northern Soul Classics to his name such as "I'm AlIve With The Loving Feeling", "You're Good Enough For Me", "I Can't Take It No More/Don't Hold Back" and "I've Got To Get Myself Together". His LP "Stand By Me" is a must for all collectors. Famed for his impersonations of other singers he will be one act not to be missed.
Pat Lewis is another who needs no introduction to UK Soul music lovers having visited these shores several times. "Warning" , "Let's Go Together", "I Can't Shake It Lose" and the rarity "No One To Love".
Lastly Daryl Grant might not be a name familiar with everyone but his CV includes many acts that are more than familiar. Singer Darryl was the lead singer of Fat Larry's band appearing on three of their releases. Darryl has also recorded with The Rolling Stones, Eddie Kendricks, Blue Magic, and Major Harris and had a brief stint with The Natural Four. He is also member of the vocal group Spectrum who's award winning show ran for four years in Las Vegas. Spectrum’s credits include European tours, headlining aboard Royal Caribbean, Princess & Norwegian Cruise Line ships, a Doo-Wop to Soul Review at the Hollywood Palladium, as well as performances with over 40 symphony orchestras throughout North America.
