The Soul Train on
This event is now over
It began in a deserted diner — with a man too tired to go on. That man, a noted trumpet player, had paid good money to see a “Live Soul Band” the previous night which had turned out to be more soul-destroying. In desperation he went to see the legendary Rick Nuttall, surely they could put a band together which could play soul music with real soul.
Calls were made and The SoulTrain began to take shape. The time: November 2008 — the place: Rawtenstall — the event: the debut of The SoulTrain — the cause: raising cash for two local charities — the result: a spectacular sell out show raising lots of cash for charity and a mighty head steam for The SoulTrain.
With the move into performing a mix of both Sixties Soul and classic Northern Soul material (engaging an audience long ignored by live acts), the band began gigging further afield, spreading its wings beyond its Lancashire home. The band is delighted to return to The Citadel to perform their authentic soul sounds..... all aboard!
