Celtic Connections 2018 Proudly Presents Lee Fields & The Expressions
Apologies to the late, great James Brown, but you’d be hard pressed to find another singer who’s ever worked as hard as Fields, a man who’s been making soul and funk anthems since 1969.
Since that time, Fields has toured the world with musical legends like Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, O.V Wright, Darrell Banks, and Little Roya; and recorded with French house DJ/producer Martin Solveig.
Fields will bring his raucous yet tender-voiced soul music to the live stage, backed by his six-piece band The Expressions and their incomparable musicianship. The set-list, which can draw on a stellar career which spans half a century, will include numbers from Fields’ most recent album, Special Night.
“While others of his era burned out or faded away, Fields is still here,
his voice now more passionate and ecstatic than ever.”
– Alex Robert Ross, Noisey
