New York, NY – January 22, 2015- For Immediate Release – Three Generations of Memphis and Mississippi Musicians Unite to Perform a Historic Concert at Sundance on Saturday, January 24th.

In celebration of the award winning (winner of the Audience Award at SXSW) Take Me to The River documentary by Martin Shore, several artists will perform at a special event presented by Social House and The Collective in Park City, Utah on Saturday, January 24th, at 10pm.

The show will be hosted by comedians Aida Rodriguez and Tony Roberts. Doors open at 9pm.

The film celebrates the musical influence of Memphis in the face of pervasive discrimination and segregation. The film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, and follows them through the creative process of recording a historic, new album. The film re-imagines the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaborations of Memphis in its heyday.

Confirmed performers of the evening are Stax Records legend, William Bell, Grammy nominee, Otis Clay – backed by the legendary Hi Rhythm Section (27 Gold and Platinum records), featuring Ben Cauley and the Royal Memphis Horns, with performances by Academy Award winner, Frayser Boy, Critics Choice Award winner, Al Kapone, and the Stax Music Academy Alumni Bromfield Band.

“Take Me to the River is a quintessential journey to America’s soul and seeks to unite people, worldwide.” – Martin Shore

They were recently praised for their performance at Bonnaroo:

“Take Me to the River was one of the best things we saw at Bonnaroo 2014. William Bell brought stunning theatricality and dynamics. Bobby Rush was at once gorgeous, deep, moving, and hilarious.” – Rolling Stone

“Take Me to the River was one of the top 5 coolest things at Bonnaroo 2014.” – USA Today
