Take Me to the River, presents a live performance experience based on the award-winning film and record that brought together multiple genera ons of iconic Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians to record a historic new album and re-imagine the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration of Memphis (Stax, High records) in its heyday. This historic show features a once-in-a-life me chance to see legends William Bell (2017 Grammy Winner), Bobby Rush (2017 Grammy winner), and Charlie Musselwhite (2014 Grammy winner) share the stage and perform classics and new TMTTR collaborations.

Backed by an ALL-STAR Memphis band, the event includes the Hi-Rhythm Section (27 Gold and Platinum records, All of Al Green's classics) and Grammy award winner Boo Mitchell, award-winning director and Grammy Nominee Martn Shore, alumni from the STAX Music Academy, and special appearances from Academy Winner Frayser Boy and Critc's Choice Award winner Al Kapone.

In addition to a traditional performance event, *Take Me To The River* hosts educational workshops and interactions as it moves around the country, interacting with students to provide a meaningful and inspiring experience with the goals of social consciousness and community building. TMTTR believes that the power of positive expression–through music, film or other art forms – leads to a permanent foundation of community, and strives to bring together those from all political, racial and generational backgrounds to communicate, cooperate, collaborate and create together as a community.
