Singer & Entertainer Mari Wilson

In this episode of The Chat with Claire Fordham podcast, Claire interviews British singing sensation Mari Wilson.

Known in the UK as the Neasden Queen of Soul, Mari had a string of hits in the 80s then ditched her signature Beehive hair do for something more manageable, carried on making great music and has never stopped writing songs and gigging.

Mari chats about being a working class girl from Neasden who made it big and then made it bigger, starring as her singing heroine Dusty Springfield in Dusty: The Musical and getting her first Emmy nomination this year after 35 years in the biz.
