Stax Music Academy: 50th Anniversary of the Stax/Volt Tour
Don’t miss this uplifting evening of sensational music-making! Based in one of the most economically depressed postcodes in the US, Stax Music Academy (SMA) in Memphis, Tennessee has for more than 16 years had tremendous success with preparing vulnerable students for college by mentoring them using intensive music education as the primary tool. And not just any music, but the music of Stax Records.

In 1967 Stax Records sent its top artists on the label’s first-ever Stax/ Volt European tour. 50 years on, the SMA will be sending its top students on a UK tour, performing much the same set list of the original tour featuring the music of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Eddie Floyd, Carla Thomas, Arthur Conley and Booker T. & the MGs.
