Join powerhouse singer Amy Black for a soulful celebration of the incredible music that came out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama in the 1960s and 70s. Together, with a full band, she performs classic songs originally recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama by Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, The Rolling Stones, Etta James, Lou Rawls, Mavis Staples, Bobby Gentry, Bob Dylan and many others, as well as originals that embody the spirit and soul of Muscle Shoals.

ABOUT AMY BLACK
Amy Black and her talented band present a high energy show with a mix of soul, blues, country and rock-n-roll. Amys third solo release, The Muscle Shoals Sessions (June 2015) was recorded at historic FAME studios in her familys homeland of Muscle Shoals, AL and features Spooner Oldham, an original Muscle Shoals Swamper. The result was, "a blend of sultry desire, ardent passion...a sound thats both tough and tender (Relix). "To showcase her true potential as a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter, Amy Black had to go home. Blacks soulful chops shine. (Elmore)
For Amy Black, Muscle Shoals, Alabama, has always held a special magic. Her parents were born there, and some of her fondest memories were made during frequent visits to both sets of grandparents. She spent so much time in the Shoals, it felt more like home than many of the places shed actually lived. She even knew the local hangouts and town lore. Or thought she did.
Black remembers passing FAME Studios often; it was right on the main drag. But she had no awareness then of its musical history or impact, much less any inkling that shed wind up making music her career. Little could she know that one day, a session with the legendary Muscle Shoals keyboardist Spooner Oldham would launch her on a journey of discovery that would give her an even deeper connection with a place she loves. After Oldham, one of Muscle Shoals original Swampers session players, was serendipitously invited to perform on her 2013 EP The Muscle Shoals Session, her interest in the sound and its story was awakened. She fell so in love  and felt so at home  with the sweet soul music hed helped craft decades before, she expanded the EP into an entire album of Shoals classics and seamlessly blended originals.
