    Hi Guys Just a quick note to let you all know that Richard Caiton arrived safely at Manchester Airport this morning. Richard sat in the back of our car singing to his CD that we were playing on the way back to good old Yorkshire. Boy! we were amazed how well he can still sing his songs, just fantastic, can't wait to hear him in front of our band PUSH at the Wilton on Saturday night. If you haven't purchased your admission tickets yet, there is still room for you in the Wilton, so you can pay on the door, we need your support - This is going to be a night not to be missed! See you all on Saturday night. Dave & Val

  13. Richard Caiton live at Wiltons Soulful Sessions

    Hi Guys Thought we would let you know how we are progressing with the Richard Caiton Concert: Richard has now signed his performance contract; his flights from New Orleans to Manchester are booked and the hotel accommodation for Richard and the band members has also been finalised. The songs that Richard will perform at the concert have been finalised and passed on to the band for rehearsal purposes and the PA guys have been booked. As you can see, we are just about ready for the concert, so if you intend to see Richard perform with a full band for the first time in the UK, don't leave it to late. November will be on us before we know it. We hope all of you that attended our previous concerts will be there on the night to give Richard the welcome he deserves. Richard's songs have graced the UK soul venues for years, so this concert has been arranged to give him a little payback. Richard is not only a singer, he wrote all of his most popular releases and wrote many songs for other artists that were played in the UK clubs: "Send Him Back" - Pointer Sisters; "Mr Big Stuff" - Jean Knight; "I'm So Lonely" - Barrons; "I've Taken Over" - Norma Jean. Richard had one release on Malaco but a number of other fabulous songs were cut at the same sessions; these songs were never released on vinyl but Richard has agreed to perform some of these songs at the concert, another reason to be there!! WILTON’S SOULFUL SESSIONS - SATURDAY 19TH NOVEMBER 2016 RICHARD CAITON LIVE AT THE GREYWOOD HALL A soul night featuring a very special performance from a southern soul legend, supported by our fantastic full eight piece band, including background vocalists, *PUSH*. The night will have the same format as our previous artist nights. Richard will perform two 30 min sets featuring most of his released recordings, and a number of his Malaco recordings that never made vinyl. This will be the first time Richard has performed live with a full support band in the UK. We are so proud to have Richard performing at the Greywood Hall, so come on guys, let’s give him a great welcome with a capacity crowd. Tickets are now available at £23.00 or £26.00 OTD if not sold out. The night will run from 9.00pm to 3.00am as before, with our guest DJ’s playing the very best 60’s – 70’s and crossover soul throughout the night – SOUL SAM - ARTHUR FENN – MIKE CHARLTON and residents BOXY & MOUSE. Watch out for further information on the Soul Source website and Facebook. Our usual PayPal payment arrangement is available at £24.50 which includes PayPal and P&P charges at - www.greywoodhall.co.uk/soulfulsessions For those of you who are planning to stay over after the concert the Premier Inn at Castleford - (M62 J31) has just applied their saver tariff at £32 per room. The Bridge Inn adjacent to the Wilton still has some rooms available. David & Val
