Soul Stirrer - the Legend of Sam Cooke

SATURDAY 4TH MAY AFTERNOON - SOUL STIRRER

The legend of Sam Cooke in words & song
Performed by Steve ‘Snips’ Parsons and band.

Sam Cooke invented soul music when he crossed over from gospel music into mainstream pop. His bold move sent a shockwave through the black community and inspired artists such as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Mavis Staples, Bobby Womack and Otis Redding to follow in his footsteps.

Sam’s compositions include: WONDERFUL WORLD, YOU SEND ME, CHANGE IS GONNA COME, CUPID, SHAKE, BRING IT ON HOME and TWISTING THE NIGHT AWAY.

Steve ’Snips’ Parsons is the blue-eyed soul singer from Sharks.
