Park City Institute Presents: Muscle Shoals Live with Lisa Fischer
Sunday, August 3, 2014
Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Amphitheater, Park City, UT
“Muscle Shoals Live: The River That Sings” – named for the little Alabama town that drew some of Rock and R&B’s biggest names (Aretha Franklin, Dylan, the Stones) to its recording studio – returns for a St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights encore on August 3. “The River That Sings” Roster: Jesse Boyce, MSLive Producer and original member of the Solid Gold Fame Gang, featured in the “Muscle Shoals” documentary. Candi Staton, multiple gold album recipient, featured in the “Muscle Shoals” documentary, will return to rock the house. Wayne Chaney, Raquel Payne, John Primm, Samson White, Gale Mayes, Jermaine Johnson, and Haley Reed are bringing the energy of the new generation to this classic music. Grammy winner Lisa Fischer – think jaw-dropping “Gimme Shelter” duet with Mick Jagger – headlines the evening. Recently featured in the documentary “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” Fischer (a.k.a. “Brown Sugar”) has long been the instantly recognizable voice accompanying rock stars, ranging from Sting and the Rolling Stones (she’s been a part of every Stones tour since 1989) to Beyoncé and Bobby McFerrin.
