Mavis Staples

Peace Concert Hall

Grammy® Award-winner and Kennedy Center Honoree Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. She made a name for herself in the 1950s as part of The Staple Singers, went on to contribute to the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era, and later rose to pop radio stardom with hits like “Time Waits for No One” and “You Are Not Alone.”

Now in her seventh decade, Staples is setting out on a new headlining tour after crossing the country as support for Bob Dylan in the summer of 2016. With her trademark deep growl more powerful than ever, Staples shouts, croons, scats, swoops, and testifies like no one else can.
