Northern Soul Orchestrated

Originating across the North and the Midlands in the 1960s and 1970s, the Northern soul subculture emerged as a passionate and vibrant all-night dance movement centred around American soul music. Growing from an underground scene to an enduring movement, the legacy of Northern soul resonates in contemporary music today; in this concert, the BBC Concert Orchestra revives the vibrant, euphoric music in a whole new style.

Curated by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Stuart Maconie and conducted by Joe Duddell, the orchestra performs amazing new arrangements by Fiona Brice of Northern soul classic anthems with a host of very special guest vocalists, capturing the spirit of a movement. Maconie says: ‘Northern soul is music at its most exciting and alive. This is the sound of the streets and the dancefloors, rich with passion, ecstasy, heartbreak and joy. We cannot wait to bring these fabulous songs and performances to the heart of the cities where they are cherished.’ Following on from the success of the BBC Northern Soul Prom in 2023, this tour is one not to be missed.
