Event Information

Mavis Staples is living, breathing history.  She is a Grammy-winning alchemist of American music, having continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles.  From the Delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create as a member of The Staple Singers, to the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era, to pop radio stardom during the Stax era, to The Last Waltz, to serving as muse to both Bob Dylan and Prince at the peak of their careers, to 21st century collaborations with Van Morrison, Ry Cooder, Willie Nelson, Chuck D. and Jeff Tweedy, the one constant has been Mavis and her singular voice.  Now in her seventh decade, the legendary Staples released her latest album “Livin on a High Note” in early 2016, and was recently recognized as a Kennedy Center Honoree.
