Brooklyn Academy of Music’s "Winter Soul" program on Jan. 24 at 7:30 pm pairs soul legend Sam Moore with newcomer singer-guitarist Raul Midon for a one-night-only performance that promises to put R&B’s living history alongside its future.

Moore (pictured), 68, recorded hits such as "Hold On, I’m Coming" and "Soul Man" while part of the Stax Records duo Sam & Dave, with Dave Prater, as well as garnering gold and platinum records and a 1967 Grammy for "Soul Man." Sam & Dave were an inspiration for Dan Akroyd and John Belushi’s Blues Brothers characters. (Prater was killed in a 1988 car accident in Georgia.)

Tickets are $20 and $25 for the show at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene. For more information call (718) 636-4100.
