Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live Series

 

“Take Me to the River reminds us where all the great music came from.” - Boston Globe

 

Featuring GRAMMY Award winning Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush and William Bell, all backed by The Hi Rhythm Section, Frayser Boy, Al Kapone, the Stax Alumni Band, and produced by the TMTTR Education Initiative group, this live concert is a journey through the soul of American music.

 

These artists are featured in the TMTTR documentary film celebrating the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis in the face of pervasive discrimination and segregation. Rolling Stone says, "Take Me to The River was one of the best things we saw at Bonnaroo. William Bell brought stunning theatricality and dynamics. Bobby Rush was at once gorgeous, deep, moving, and hilarious."
