In her 67-year career – from her ground-breaking family gospel group – The Staple Singers ‘I’ll Take You There’, ‘Respect Yourself’, ‘If You’re Ready (Come Go With Me)’ and on her own, Mavis Staples is responsible for blazing a rhythm & blues trail while never relinquishing her gospel roots and it is now that her star is shining brightest. Her two collaborations with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy ‘You Are Not Alone’ & ‘One True Vine,’ have earned her a Grammy Award and a whole new generation of fans whose legions grow with every performance.
