The acclaimed 8 piece soul band Rufus Stone have been performing constantly since their formation back in 1984 and have played at every kind of venue from the wonderful Royal Albert Hall to city theatres, cruise ships and open air events such as the Round the World Yacht Race and Goodwood Festival of Speed. On their list of credits are performances and tours with the likes of Edwin Starr, Curtis Mayfield, Ben E King, Jimmy Ruffin and many more of soul music’s greats. Over the years they have built a loyal following and it is this support that has kept the band not only on the road but still as soulful as when they started. The music is authentic soul with selections from The Blues Brothers and The Commitments, but the bulk of the set comes from the soul greats such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and many others. Rufus Stone are guaranteed to make the evening very special!
We’re over the moon that Rufus Stone have added FirsFest to their 2018 schedule and we welcome them to the main stage on Friday evening.
