Never mind the Scottish Independence vote! Next weekend Scotland moves south as the fourth instalment of the Great Scottish Soul Weekender moves down the M6 to Charnock Richards. For those not familiar with the geography of the great North West, Charnock Richards is a pretty little village near Preston and home of a motorway service area. There’s also a great resort style hotel and for all kinds of reasons that’s the place for all soul fans (Scottish or otherwise) next weekend!

Amongst the numerous attractions at SSW4 are DJs Graeme Park, Horse Meat Disco, Soul Sam plus Live legendary US soul artists Ann Sexton and Garfield Fleming. The dates? Friday September 26th through to Sunday September 27th. For all info
