Last year's edition of The Soul of Christmas was a real smash hit with sold-out concerts around the country. This time, Samuel Ljungblahd brings new guests - Sandviken Big Band none other than Sarah Dawn Finer. It will be a Christmas concert with Motown-scented soul, gospel, jazz and Christmas classics.
