Southport Festival welcomes the legends of Soul at the Waterfront
Iconic British band Soul II Soul head to Southport to headline the 2019 Southport Festival.
On Friday 10 May the band that had huge successes with the hits Keep On Movin’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)’ perform in the beautiful surroundings of the Floral Hall Ballroom.
The double Grammy Award winning and five-time Brit Award nominated band progressed from being one of the leaders of the 1980’s warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world and securing commercial success for themselves and the huge number of artists they have influenced.
As well as selling 10 million albums worldwide, the main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2008, as well as winning an Ivor Novello Award for Inspiration, as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own”.
