This December 17th 1960s soul sensations, The Flirtations, are set to headline Digbeth’s soul & retro venue The Night Owl for a very special Christmas show. Support on the night comes from Abi Farrell of East London’s independent label Big AC Records. Tickets are available now at £20pp.
This Christmas you can treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the soulful American trio who took over the UK scene with their hits ‘Nothing but a Heartache’, ‘Changes Darkness into light’, ‘Little Darling’ and more! The Flirtations, FKA The Gypsies, have crafted a legacy that follows their name and have marked themselves as a must-see group.
The Flirtations’ album Sounds Like The Flirtations was recently reissued on vinyl via Decca Records. Originally released on Deram in 1969, Sounds Like The Flirtations features some of the group’s most beloved tunes, including ‘Someone Out There’, ‘Love is a Sad Song’, and the classic ‘Nothing But A Heartache’.
If you’re familiar with The Night Owl you may recognise opening act Abi Farrell from their Big AC Records Live Revue back in May. Hailing from Oxfordshire, Abi Farrell was raised on a soundtrack of female-driven pop, funk and soul. Influences from the likes of Aretha, Carole King, Eva Cassidy and Chaka Khan may all be present in Abi’s music but each song is brought into the here and now by her effortlessly pure voice and lyrical dexterity. Farrell has received great critical acclaim over her musical career:
“Great songwriting and a beautiful voice” Robert Elms – BBC Radio London
“An artist on the rise… a considerable talent” Blues & Soul Magazine
Tickets are available here for the upcoming show. Saturday 17th December at The Night Owl.
