There are few living musicians who can lay claim to being the voice of America’s conscience, and even fewer who continue to make vital music. For six decades Mavis Staples has been the solid rock of American music. Alongside the family group she is so identified with, the Staples Singers, Mavis has managed to transform herself as she goes, yet never alter.

Staples will be joined by Nick Lowe, who has made his mark as a producer, songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician.
