After a triumphant show at Blackpool Christmas Ball with Soul II Soul, the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club returns with Hannah Williams & the Tastemakers live, plus presenter, DJ, actor and funkster Craig Charles manning the decks till the early hours with the planet’s funkiest tunes.
The daughter of a musically gifted minister, Hannah Williams was immersed in soulful music from the day she was born. From the genuine process of recording to tape, almost completely live, to the raw emotion of reliving personal tragedy and triumph in front of the whole band, the Hannah Williams story is told with every scream and every sigh. Backed by the “super tight, super heavy” (Soul Cellar) Tastemakers band, you can find Hannah melting hearts in one breath, and the dance-floor in another. Music is her day job, the studio is her office, and when she’s not singing, her father’s trumpet is never far from her lips…
