The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents Gospel music legend Mavis Staples in concert on Sunday, February 25, 2018.
Since her first recording at age 13 in 1954, Mavis Staples has learned from, worked with, and schooled countless legends, and has brought her own timeless talent to every performance. From the Delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create in the 1950s with her father, Pops, and her brother and sisters as The Staple Singers, to the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era, to pop radio stardom during the Stax era with hits “I’ll Take You There” and “Respect Yourself.”
Staples has been an inspiration to Bob Dylan and Prince, and was involved in 21st century collaborations with Van Morrison, Billy Preston, Zac Brown, Ry Cooder, Chuck D. and Willie Nelson. She also took part in a GRAMMY-winning partnership with fellow Chicagoan Jeff Tweedy.
