TAKE ME TO THE RIVER:
NEW ORLEANS LIVE
National Concert Tour & Education Initiative
A journey through the soul of America and celebration of New Orleans music
The award-winning film Take Me To The River brings multiple generations of legendary Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a new album. The film has since expanded into a full Education Initiative, with curriculums based on the documentary’s historical themes and messages being taught in schools nationwide.
TMTTR kicked off its first tour, Take Me To The River: Memphis Soul and Rhythm & Blues Revue, last year. In October 2018, Take Me To The River: New Orleans Live will embark, celebrating NOLA culture and the cross-cultural musical influence of the city.
