Journey to Soul Returns to Milford

The second annual Journey To Soul event will take place in downtown Milford on Saturday, February 18 in the Crystal Ballroom at the Milford Senior Center. Journey to Soul spotlights local talent in the Delaware and Eastern Shore area through art, spoken word (poetry) and Music.

Continuing their success from last year, event organizers Dwayne Powell and Michael Duker are trying to capture the history of Milford’s art and entertainment history.

“Milford has a lot of historical significance of having entertainment, arts and culture,” commented Mr. Duker. “There was a time when even as a small town, Milford would attract large performers.” Mr. Duker recalls his parents seeing performances by James Brown and Count Basie in the Greater Milford Area.

The event will provide live jazz, spoken word, neo soul, and R&B performances by some of the area’s top artists, as well as an infusion of smooth grooves supplied by Delaware’s premier live band Mix Music Soul. Musical entertainment for Journey to Soul II will include artists Franchesca “Fancy” Hildreth, “The Visual Artist” Nina Spencer, Soul Son and Klassiq.

Journey To Soul II supports the continuing endeavors of future artists by donating a portion of the event proceeds to fund scholarships for the arts through The Mispillon Art League.

“We want this to be a reawakening of what is already here,” commented Mr. Powell. “This event will hopefully inspire others to bring more to the community and enrich the cultural significance of the town.”

Event organizers are urging individuals to purchase their tickets in advance due to last year’s sold out crowd. The full artist lineup and event tickets will be available by contacting Dwayne Powell @ 302-393-9658 and Thomas Short 302-339-5246.
