Keep the Faith – Northern Soul band featuring Sarah Collins

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham
19:30 - 22:30

We are delighted to welcome Sarah Collins and nine-piece Northern Soul band Keep the Faith back to the town hall after their rapturously received gig last year.
Sarah Collins is a firm favourite on today’s Northern Soul scene with many appearances at UK and European festivals and events, and a YouTube channel with thousands of subscribers. Sarah’s musical career was derailed by a brain tumour, which was successfully removed in 2012. After that, she felt the need to keep singing, and started posting videos of her singing Northern Soul covers to backing tracks on YouTube. She now has over a million views!
Sarah has now got together with a group of highly experienced musicians to recreate the live sound and feel of the songs which originated on an underground scene during the mid-60s and have swept the dancefloors ever since. With a nine-piece line-up of guitar, bass, drums and keyboards, backing vocals and brass section, Keep the Faith play authentic arrangements of the original songs. Keep The Faith provide a live Northern Soul experience that is second to none.
Tickets £10 available from Mashamshire Community Office 01765 680200

Widely regarded as one of the most innovative acts to come out of the UK in recent years, the sublime genre-defying sound of the Red Dirt Skinners is created by husband and wife team, Rob and Sarah Skinner. If you like songs influenced by Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel, Supertramp, Crosby Stills and Nash, David Bowie coupled with some epic storytelling, humour and heartfelt emotions, you’ll love this duo. In 2013 the Red Dirt Skinners became the first band in history to succeed at both the British Blues and the British Country Music awards. Drawing on influences from folk, country, blues, americana, jazz and everything between, the Red Dirt Skinners’ sound is instantly recognisable.
Doors open 7.30pm. Tickets £10 available from the Village Hall or Email for more details.
