Multiple Grammy winner Mavis Staples was named one of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and by VH1 as among the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll.  Rolling Stone named Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There" and "Respect Yourself" among Top 500 Songs of All Time.
 
 "Mavis Staples is the most underrated diva of the century. She has an almost superhuman ability to implant the pure power of passion and emotion."  - Rolling Stone
 
 Come and experience the wall-to-wall joy of Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer --- and civil activist --- Mavis Staples.  She records a new album almost every year, and her latest, Don't Lose This, just out in 2015, is getting rave reviews.   This could just be the one concert you remember 2015 by.  A legend in her time, come to the show on Thursday, August 6th and you'll witness some of the best R&B, soul, and gospel music ever sung.  Mavis is likewise known for her unique interpretations of songs by her father, Pops Staples, Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint, John Fogerty, Rev. Gary Davis and Little Milton.
 
Don't Lose This follows her Grammy-winning album One True Vine, and her 2007 critical triumph, We'll Never Turn Back, which revisited the great songs of the civil rights era and prompted her hometown paper The Chicago Sun-Times to hail her as "an American treasure."
 
2008's Live: Hope at the Hideout was named one of the Best Live CDs of All Time by Amazon.com's editors and earned Mavis her first Grammy-nomination as a solo artist.  Rejoice!
