Changing Lives Through Music

In 1967 Stax records sent its top artists on a first-ever tour of Europe, which became known as the legendary Stax/Volt European Tour. Now, to recognise the 50th anniversary of the milestone event that catapulted Stax into the international limelight, the Stax Music Academy has been invited to follow in their footsteps with its first-ever tour of the UK, France and Ireland.

For this very special show the Stax Music Academy will celebrate the famous 1967 tour with music by Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Eddie Floyd, Arthur Conley, Booker T. & the MGs and more.

If you are a lifelong Stax Records fan but don’t know about how the Soulsville Foundation is carrying the legacy of the label into the future by helping young people discover the Memphis Sound, then this is the show for you! It is the only school in the world teaching students the art form of American soul music and the sound that was created in Memphis during the 1960s and 1970s, which became a worldwide phenomenon.
