A Big Thank You - and - Ann Sexton Live At The Wilton

After the disappointment felt by everyone when Marvin Smith was taken ill and had to cancel his concert last November, we felt like calling it a day with regards to live artists at the Wilton’s Soulful Sessions.  We continued with the event and, thanks to all who attended, you turned the disappointment into a great success, and helped us financially to recover some of our losses.

We would like to thank all the people who attended, with a special thank you to those who refused their refunds, telling us to put the money towards next year’s event, and because of your support, we have decided to give it another go.

14th November 2015, is our next soul night, featuring a very special performance from a southern soul legend — ANN SEXTON — supported by our incredible full eight piece band, including background vocalists — PUSH.

Let’s give Ann a welcome she will never forget, with a Wilton capacity crowd that, no doubt, will know more about Ann’s recording career than she can probably remember herself.

Ann’s sets will include deep soul and uptempo classics, something for everyone’s taste.

Tickets will go on sale mid-March — watch the Soul Source events guide and the Wilton’s pages on Facebook for updates.

Looking forward to November.

Dave and Val

Ann’s sets will include her well known songs from the 70’s, deep and uptempo classics that she recorded initially for David Lee’s Impel label and later for John Richbourg’s ® Seventy Seven label, something for everyone’s taste.

 

We have asked Ann to perform something extra special, her very first recording that she cut way back in 1967. She was the featured vocalist on a track cut by Elijah and the Ebonies titled “I Confess”, a great ballad issued on the Gitana label, cut in Ann’s hometown of Greenville, South Carolina. On this release she was featured as Mary Sexton and must have been in her late teens when this recording was released. We are so pleased and privileged that Ann has agreed to perform this song onstage at the Wilton for the very first time in Europe since she recorded the song all those years ago.

 

To make sure we’ve covered all the bases, Ann will perform her latest 2010 release “Rising Up”, a fantastic uptempo soulful track.

 

Tickets are now on sale at £20.00 or online at £21.50 at www.wheatsheaf.com/allnighter – watch the Soul Source events guide and the Wilton’s pages on Facebook for updates.

 

Tickets will be on sale at the Scarborough weekender 27th/28th/29th of March at the Rivelyn Hotel and Soul Essence 10th/11th/12th of April. 

 

 

Looking forward to November.

 

Dave and Val.

Latest Update - (7th July 2015)

 

It’s been a long time since we sent this original email round to all you guys, so we thought it was time to let you know what’s been going on over the past few months. Well, Ann signed the contract some months ago, so tickets went on sale. The response for tickets has been great - we didn’t start selling tickets for last year’s concert until July, but this year we have sold around 100 tickets already, which is fantastic. We have had sales from the length and breadth of the UK.

Ann has recorded some great songs, so the task to decide the song list for the concert has been a tough one, but we have just about completed a list that will included something for everybody’s taste. Ann’s concert will be split into two 30 minute sets, just as we did with Debbie Taylor.

Ann’s set will cover the full spectrum of her career starting in 1967 with “I Confess”, touching on Deep/Midtempo/Uptempo/Funk from the 70’s, and finally Soulful House from 2010.  Ann has agreed the song list and the songs and the keys have been passed on to the band.

Ann’s flights and hotels are now booked, the band’s hotel is also booked. The sound guys and sound equipment for the concert is also finalised. Work permits for Ann will be issued a few weeks before the concert. Well, that sounds like it’s sorted, just about, but just like any project, fine adjustments will be needed along the way to November 14th.

All we need now is for all our Wilton Allnighter guys to get their act together and get their tickets before it’s too late. This email is addressed to most of people who have attended the Wilton Allnighter at some time in its 20 year history, and other people that have attended our recent soul nights and live artist events.

This concert is an event not to be missed and is looking like a sell out night, so don’t leave it to the last minute and be disappointed. Get a ticket now and just sit back and wait for the 14th November. Most people who have already got tickets have also booked in the local hotels, deals are now available for November booking at around £35 per room; these hotels are not massive and soon will be sold out.

Hi Guys

Ann's first set starts at 11.30 - 12.00, second set 12.30 - 01.00  Her sets will probably overrun, but that's the plan.

No late excuses will be accepted Steve. If you want a seat get there early!!!!!!

Just one month to go!!  We still have tickets to sell, but they won't last for ever. Get them now so you won't be disappointed.

PLEASE NOTE!  NO ADMISSION AFTER 11.00pm

Hi Dave

I am not sure why you are suggesting that I need a seat, I am still capable of standing up for the first session, although not sure about the second one!!! I will save one for Martyn who, although slightly younger than me, needs to rest when it gets late. Looking forward to the night.

Just over two weeks before Ann Sexton walks on the stage at the Wilton.

We arranged for Ann to conduct a phone interview last Sunday on Harry & Diana Grundy’s “The Right Track Soul Show”, Salford City Radio.  Ann’s interview went out live over the air and on the internet between 8.00 pm - 9.00 pm.

During the interview Ann expressed how happy she is to be performing at the Wilton. Listen Again at:  http://podcast.canstream.co.uk/scr/index.php?id=34296

Thanks to everybody who have already got their tickets, but we still have tickets to sell and anyone who intends to be there, don’t leave it too long and be disappointed. We can’t guarantee admission on the door.

The event runs from 9.00pm until 3.00 am. No admission after 11.00 pm.

Ann will be performing two sets 11.30 - 12.00  &  12.30 - 01.00.  The same arrangement as we did for the Debbie Taylor concert in 2013.

Quite simply Stunning!. Dave had said how well the rehearsal had gone & boy was he on the money. Ann gave us song after song with such purity & the band Push with the girls were as good as anyone you would ever hear. Once again Dave & Val gifted us all a precious memory :thumbup:.

Up there with the best I've seen, simply brilliant.  As Arthur said the guys in the band and the girls on backing as good a band you will hear, incredibly tight.  It does help when the guy and girls love the music too.  Mick Talbot been there and done it but to see him having a ball was simply brilliant.  Ann though was simply stunning.  She's lost nothing since laying down some of these tracks.  The first time she sang "You Been Gone Too Long" it was like listening to the record vocally, brilliant.  Well done Dave, Val and Mouse.  Look forward to the next one.
