Lee Fields & the Expressions, Outside Soul

When: Sat., Dec. 8, 9 p.m. 2012

By the time he'd finished his teenaged years, Lee Fields—a Wilson, N.C., farm kid with dreams of making it big—was a married entertainer in New York City, attempting to work his way toward fame. Now in his 60s, Fields' reputation has never approached that of his ostensible hero and fellow Carolinian, James Brown. But recent soul music resuscitations have steadily pushed Fields toward bigger stages, giving his unadulterated zeal, raw voice and expert band a hard-earned payoff. "Take it from me, I've seen everything," Fields sang on last year's Faithful Man. "You try to be cool, but you're playing the fool." Wiser and still married, Fields brings his wisdom back to Carolina. With Outside Soul. —Grayson Currin
