There has been a lot of Northern Soul activity in East Lancashire this weekend.
First, we went to King Georges Hall in Blackburn to watch and take part as extras in the filming of a Northern Soul film. It was amazing to see how they recreated a scene from Wigan Casino using lighting, smoke machines and authentic dance moves and costumes... fascinating stuff. No pictures from there I'm afraid, copyright and all that.
However, we then went to Colne Municipal Hall for the 12th birthday celebrations of the Soul Night. They were making a film called 'One Night in Colne' and I managed to get some footage of arguably the best dancer in these parts... the one and only Roy Stewart. Its not often you get chance to capture him on the floor alone and with such great light too. The film crew had set up a spotlight which ran right across the dance floor making it possible to admire some of the sublime footwork skills of this master of soul.
Watch and learn baby... watch... and... learn.
