It’s no wonder that the Chicago Tribune calls Mavis Staples an “American treasure.” Staples has been a solid rock of American music, from the Delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create in the 1950s (“Uncloudy Day”), to her engaged protest music in the civil rights era (“Freedom Highway”), to a series of chart hits in the 1970s (“I’ll Take You There”). In a career that has spanned almost 70 years, Mavis Staples has blazed a trail all her own, never relinquishing her gospel roots or her fiery spirit. Staples’ recent 80th birthday celebration concerts featured friends like John Prine, David Byrne, Jason Isbell, Norah Jones, and Trombone Shorty… a testament to her position as an American musical icon.
