Live soul music returns to the stage


With the UK's best soul venues still closed because of COVID-19, Total Soul is keeping tabs on the artists returning to the stage later in 2021.

At Camden's Jazz Café in north London, Shaun Escoffery was due to play three nights in late January to support his latest album, 'Strong Enough' - but the gig is likely to be affected by the latest lockdown in England.  The legendary Omar is still tentatively in concert at the end of March.

At Indigo at the O2 in Greenwich, the Brand New Heavies have a rescheduled gig pencilled in for late May.

The Hideaway in Streatham is continuing a series of virtual gigs - where you can enjoy quality live soul from the comfort of your living room.

Sadly, other soul venues outside the capital remain closed.  Band on The Wall in Manchester has suspended all performances until September, and it's a similar story at Zeffirellis in Cumbria.

Total Soul is monitoring the latest developments - so check our music news section regularly for updates.
