TWO international artists are to play in a Bradford district town this weekend.

Saltaire roots music promoter, The Live Room, will be hosting the events at its Caroline Street Social Club home.

Gambian singer, songwriter and kora maestro, Suntou Susso and his six-piece band are playing on Friday.

In the past, Suntou has collaborated with celebrated jazz singer Sarah-Jane Morris; guitarist Tony Remy, Ghazalaw, Davide Mantovani, Kora and Modern Jazz fusion; and Opera singer Pumeza Matshikiza.

Sunday will see the return of soul-blues giant Sugaray Rayford from Texas with his full seven-piece band. 

Sugaray has just won his third Blues Music Award for his latest album, In Too Deep. 

His live shows often descend into a party.

Some conversations may be had, and some self-reflection may occur, but at the end of the day, people leave feeling a sense of joy and togetherness.
