The Big Trad Train

One comment


In 1970, America and the world was hit by a wonderful new sensation called SOUL TRAIN! This brought the world some of the best performers of Soul and Rhythm and Blues music along with some of the most inspiring and best written songs in modern music history. So what has this got to do with trad??!!

A lot of trad musicians find themselves drawn to R’n’B, Soul and blues music. So earlier this year the "musical director" (polite name ;) ) Martino Vacca decided to unite a group of 26 of the finest Trad Musicians around the area and perform some of the great Soul Train hits from BB King to The Blues Brothers, Eric Clapton to Ray Charles.

The show will be a blast to the past, music you’ll both know and love but in a way you will have never heard it before. And hopefully it will further your ideas on what can be done with both Soul AND Trad.

And if thats not enough enjoyment for one evening, there will also be a rocking afterparty and Trad Disco after the show in the Pavillion Bar by UL Trad Soc and music by DJ Danny Deepo!
