Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged in Northern England in the late 1960s from the British Mod scene as a particular style of black American soul based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound.
Northern soul is associated with particular dance styles and fashions that grew out of the underground rhythm & soul scene of the late 1960s at venues such as the Twisted Wheel in Manchester, Wigan Casino and Blackpool Mecca.
In recognition of this great Northern heritage and as one of the new events for the Rossendale 60’s Festival 2017, Maria Teoli of St Mary’s Chambers in Rawtenstall has invited the well respected Northern Soul DJ Kieron Woodward to host a Northern Soul/Motown spectacular on Sunday 10th September from 2.00pm. The dance floor at this venue is exceptional and the event is FREE. So pack your dance shoes and talc and enjoy!
