Amy Black: Celebrating the Music of Muscle Shoals
July 11, 2014
"Americana in its broadest definition, rooted in folk and country but with tinges of Southern soul and blues." - The Boston Globe
"A powerful, authentic, talented and above all soulful new entry in the rootsy singer/songwriter ranks." - American Songwriter
Magazine Amy Black brings the music of Muscle Shoals, Alabama to Natick. Black, who will perform classics originally recorded in Muscle Shoals by Otis Reading, Wilson Pickett, The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Lou Rawls and others, aspires to educate music lovers about the rich history of Muscle Shoals in the 1960s and 1970s. Though she is a Boston-based singer and songwriter, Black has a long tradition of Southern storytelling in her blood. In record time, she's become one of the most sought after acts in the East, sharing stages with Chris Isaak, The Courtyard Hounds, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, and headlining at some of the region's best venues. In February, she released her newest album, This Is Home, a full album of original music recorded in Nashville.
