Photos from Porretta

Here's a selection of photos from this year's Porretta Soul Festival.
First, here is Otis Clay, possibly the greatest living soul singer.
Here is fellow Hi recording artist Syl Johnson.
Former member of Memphis group the Mad Lads, John Gary Williams.
Atlanta-based soul singer David Hudson.
Larry Dodson, once of the Temprees, now vocalist with the Bar-Kays.
Backing group with the Bo-Keys - the Norman Sisters, with Archie Turner on keyboards.
The Bo-Keys' excellent horn section, with guitarist Joe Restivo.
Ben Cauley, trumpet player with the Bo-Keys and an original member of the Bar-Kays. He was the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed Otis Redding and the other original group members.
Some of the 30-odd members of the Australian girl band, the Sweethearts.
David Hudson performing to a backing track of his new album at the Irish bar in Porretta.
Woodie Dave Thomas with the plaque he picked up on behalf of In The Basement magazine.
Porretta's Dutch contingent, including Hans and Harry (second and third from the right) of the Fingerpoppin' Soul radio show in Amsterdam, which celebrates its 1000th edition later this year.
Here's me with the great Otis Clay.
And here I am with Syl Johnson.
