We are excited to welcome prolific soul hit-makers Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham to The Lantern as they perform as part of the Bristol Americana Weekend.
Between them, Penn and Oldham have penned hits for some of soul music’s all-time greats: Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Percy Sledge, to name a few. The performance will be complemented by a screening of a documentary about Muscle Shoals:

A fascinating, uplifting history lesson about how one visionary record producer and a group of unknown session musicians in tiny backwater, Muscle Shoals, Alabama have changed the course of modern music and produced some of America’s most creative and defiant songs.
There will also be a screening of Wrecking Crew, ticket deals available. See the main Americana page for more information.
