The Grammy Museum has announced a new “Live from the Vault” digital series, in which the museum will periodically release archived video footage, starting with soul and gospel legend Mavis Staples and the Beatles’ drummer Ringo Starr.
Since 2008, the museum has captured more than 2,000 hours of archived video footage. As part of a partnership with Iron Mountain Entertainment Services, specific archived videos will be released through the “Live from the Vault” series. Recordings from Staples’ 2010 program in the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater are available on the museum’s official streaming service, COLLECTION:live, with free access to all viewers. The previously recorded program with Starr will be released on March 4. Additional artists and programming will be announced soon.
“As we’ve seen in the past year, it’s vital for museums to increase their digital presence and the Grammy Museum has been doing just that,” museum president Michael Sticka said. “We’re thrilled to partner with IMES for our new ‘Live from the Vault’ series to preserve these important recordings and moments in music history from our archives.”
