Memphis Soul A 6week course with Pete Elman   Thursday Oct 4 - ...   $150/6-class series

Memphis Soul A 6week course with Pete Elman

The soul music that came out of Memphis in the 1960’s transformed the landscape of popular music. It was rhythm and blues; it was rock and roll. It was the sound of the Deep South, the incredible voices that came from the black church, and the rhythms of the land. It was the vehicle to stardom for many. Its legacy has lasted 50 years and will live as long as people have a need to be nurtured by the soulful sounds of Stax-Volt, Otis Redding, Booker T and the MGs, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave, James Brown, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin and many others.
