The Dig Deeper guys have been in touch:
Although some of you might have caught him on stage with Sharon Jones at the Apollo last year, we were thinking that the several years since Lee Fields did a solo show in NYC is far too long. From his classics on Angle 3 through to his more recent releases on Desco, Soul Fire, Daptone, and Truth & Soul, he's got an amazing catalog of work. We can't wait to welcome him back, this time backed by the lovely Sweet Divines and the Divine Soul Rhythm Band!
More details to follow, but we're excited to announce that he will be doing the first live performance of "Take me back" in...well...Lee couldn't remember the last time he played that song out, as well as his version of the Sonics classic "Shot Down". We can't wait.
Tickets now on sale here:
Still time to book a flight to NYC...we'd love to have you join us! By the way, did we mention that Bumpshop resident and New York Soul Recordings scholar Dave Griffiths will be joining us as guest DJ?
