This stunning partnership evolved out of a chance meeting between Campbell and Soothsayers in Kingston Jamaica, they have produced an acclaimed album of new material and this is a top quality live experience. See Cornel Campbell with Soothsayers up close for their only UK club show this year – warming up for appearances at Rototom Festival – Spain, One Love Festival and Edinburgh Festival.

Since the release of “Nothing Can Stop Us” in May last year, Soothsayers and Cornell have been touring venues and festivals around Europe, attracting a growing army of supporters along the way. Reviews of the shows have been unanimously positive and audiences ecstatic.
