Muscle Shoals Live & Lisa Fischer to Return to Park City, 8/3
by BWW News Desk - Jul 11, 2014

Casting a well-deserved spotlight on artists who typically do not take center stage (but clearly should do so more often), Muscle Shoals Live: The River That Sings returns to Park City for an encore performance August 3. Inspired by two remarkable 2013 Sundance films, "Muscle Shoals Live" and "Twenty Feet From Stardom," Park City Institute's Teri Orr teamed up with Muscle Shoals' Jesse Boyce to curate a concert featuring an outstanding collection of under-sung musicians hailing from a hotbed of talent and stardom known as the "Singing River;" Grammy winner Lisa Fischer (think jaw-dropping "Gimme Shelter" duet with Mick Jagger) tops the billing. This signature St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concert starts at 7 p.m.; gates open at 5:30 p.m. at Deer Valley Resort's Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Lawn and reserved seating tickets are available. (more...)
