Ruby Turner

Saturday 28 September - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

Britain’s Queen of Soul-Gospel music – Ruby Turner MBE – is coming to The Grand, Clitheroe on Saturday 28th September with a superb backing band. 

Just how good is Ruby? Ask Jools Holland, who tells us Ruby is his very favourite guest singer. She has appeared with his band now for 30 years!

There really is something quite extraordinary about a Ruby Turner show. Not only is her vocal musicianship exquisite; her humour and stage rapport is entertaining, and she exudes professionalism throughout every minute of the evening

She has played sell-out shows twice before at The Grand so make sure you act quickly to avoid disappointment.

Ruby has topped the US charts with “It’s Gonna Be Alright” and for 30 years, has travelled the world as the principal vocalist with Jools Holland and his R&B Orchestra. She has sung with some of the most well known and highly-regarded British musicians and bands; from Stevie Winwood, Mick Jagger, UB40 through to Bryan Ferry and Culture Club.


On 4th June, 2012 Ruby preformed “You Are So Beautiful” with Jools Holland at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace. In Autumn of the same year Ruby was a guest judge on the BBC’s The Choir. In 2016 she was awarded the MBE.

"Soul, Gospel and R&B: Ruby Turner is truly the genuine article. Blessed with a voice that can breathe life and meaning into any song, whether it be a passionate ballad of a fast groove."
