What is The Drifters Girl about?
The Drifters were certainly one of the world’s greatest vocal groups. Faye Treadwell was their manager and she wasn’t going to be satisfied until they were a global force to be reckoned with, no matter what. Alongside her husband George Treadwell, she would spend a large part of her life working to preserve the musical legacy she has created.
In The Drifters Girl Beverley Knight brings the true story of the first-ever African American female music manager out of the shadows. Featuring some of the most recognisable and classic songs in history, The Drifters Girl follows Faye on her 3-decade long fight to protect and promote the group that she loved.
There were incredible highs spanning the years including sold-out tours and hit records but there were also unbelievable lows comprised of battles fought in court and personal tragedies. More than thirty years and hundreds of hit songs later, now is your chance to hear the songs and learn the story of The Drifters Girl.
