Porretta line up takes shape

This year's Porretta Soul festival looks as though it will be a good one for southern soul fans like me. The website is short on detail, but what has been revealed is that the line up will include Carl Sims, Oscar Toney Jr and David Hudson. Carl was the original singer with the Bar-Kays and is now a leading southern soul man, while Oscar Toney has one of the sweetest soul voices around and David Hudson has recorded some classic soul in Memphis. The website - http://www.porrettasoul.it/index.htm - also lists a number of others who are 'rumoured' to be appearing but I think we can take at least some of these with a pinch of salt. These include Austin DeLone All Star Band, Sweet Nectar, Barbara Morrison, Barbara Lynn, J. Blackfoot, Vaneese Thomas, Solomon Burke, Henry Butler with New Orleans Legends, Bobby Johnson, Toni Green, Soul Survivors,The Diplomats of Soul with The Diplomettes


Whatever the outcome, it looks as though Graziano has done it again.
