"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

With the release of her new album Livin' on a High Note, Mavis Staples delivers the most joyful and uplifting music of her 60+ year career. Having first achieved recognition as lead singer for the Staple Singers ("I'll Take You There" and "Let's Do It Again"), she's considered an alchemist of American music; crossing genre lines like no other and weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul and rock 'n' roll. The legendary vocalist is a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award winner, National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient and a Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Famer.

Festival Place, along with the Jack Singer Hall in Calgary will be the only Alberta dates on the tour. Don't miss your chance to see the legendary Mavis Staples, who through her lustrous career continues to inspire with messages of hope and positivity.
