North­ern Soul star to re­turn

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - MONIAIVE ATTRACTS THE TOP NAMES -

North­ern Soul leg­end Sarah Collins will make a wel­come re­turn to Dum­fries’ Cairn­dale Ho­tel on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7.

A firm favourite on the scene with many ap­pear­ances at UK and Euro­pean fes­ti­vals – and a YouTube chan­nel with more than 8,000 sub­scribers – Sarah has a big fol­low­ing in the town.

Her ca­reer was de­railed by a brain tu­mour which was suc­cess­fully re­moved in 2012 and she’s not looked back.

Her su­perb vo­cals with the Keep The Faith band can be heard at the Park­house Suite from 8.30pm where they will play two sets of Mo­town and North­ern Soul clas­sics.

The seven-piece – gui­tar, bass, drums, key­boards and a three-piece brass sec­tion – are all ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional mu­si­cians. They will be backed by the Dum­fries Soul Club.

Her singing ca­reer was brought to an abrupt halt in 2012 when, re­turn­ing home af­ter drop­ping off her son at school, she col­lapsed and wasn’t found un­til her hus­band re­turned home.

Doc­tors dis­cov­ered a tu­mour al­most a quar­ter of the size of her brain, which was re­moved in an emer­gency op. Tick­ets are sell­ing fast and are avail­able from the Cairn­dale, the Mid­steeple, Barn­storm Records and Tick­etWeb on 01387 253383.
