Following the success of last year’s Northern Soul Prom at the Albert Hall, the concert curator STUART MACONIE is taking an edition of the concert on the road. Through April and May, Stuart and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Joe Duddell will deliver five “Northern Soul Orchestrated” concerts recreating some of the magic of that great night at the venerable old Albert Hall!

The PR suggests that “the tour promises to transport audiences back in time capturing the spirit of a movement. Originating in the industrial regions in the 1960s and 70s across the North and the Midlands, the Northern Soul subculture emerged as a passionate and vibrant all-night dance movement centred around American soul music.”

Carolyn Hendry, Interim Director of the BBC Concert Orchestra said: “What a joy it is for us to bring Northern Soul Orchestrated around the country this spring. The concert is borne out of the Northern Soul BBC Prom, which premiered at the BBC Proms last year, and had over a million plays on iPlayer and Sounds. As the UK’s most versatile orchestra, we take great pride in having the opportunity to share this special concert with audiences again.”  

Kicking off in Wolverhampton at The Civic at The Halls on Wednesday 24th April, Northern Soul Orchestrated will visit some of the UK’s most prestigious venues in London, Manchester and Sheffield before concluding in Gateshead at The Glasshouse International Centre for Music on Saturday 18th May. The tour is one not to be missed.
