Stax Academy is still knocking on wood

The Wall Street Journal gave some love in Wednesday’s paper to the Stax Music Academy with a story that included a reference to a visit earlier in August by Eddie Floyd.

Floyd is a former Stax star who recorded soul hits like “Knock on Wood.”

“For these kids, connecting with people like me changes things,” the 74-year-old Floyd told the WSJ. “I can see that in their eyes and faces.”

The piece goes on to mention recent performances by the academy’s students at Washington’s Smithsonian Folklife Festival and Kennedy Center, as well as New York’s Lincoln Center.
