She’s been dubbed one of the greatest singers of all time and now this American music legend is coming to Calgary.

One of the most influential vocalists of our time, Mavis Staples began as a member of The Staples Singers and was part of Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights movement before breaking out on her own in 1969.

Now, enjoying a rare third-act career resurgence, hear her soulful voice sing the gospel, soul and rock we’ve come to expect, plus new songs from her new album, Livin’ on a High Note.

Arts Commons Presents: Mavis Staples takes place September 17, 2016 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE).
