Take Me to the River features Grammy®-winners Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush and William Bell along with The Hi Rhythm Section, the Stax Academy Alumni Band, Frayser Boy & Al Kapone, plus Music Director Boo Mitchell. Following in the footsteps of the award winning 2014 documentary film of the same name, Take Me to the River is a live concert journey through the soul of American music, celebrating the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis that flourished during a time of pervasive discrimination and segregation. “…one of the best things we saw…stunning theatricality and dynamics…gorgeous…moving.” – Rolling Stone
