MAVIS STAPLES’ voice “possesses a sultry, burnt-sugar glow…she turns a simple pop song into a lament that could move a listener to tears." (NPR) The church-infused soul legend won a host of new fans with her 2010 Grammy-winning Jeff Tweedy collaboration, You Are Not Alone, and she remains "one of the world's mightiest gospel pop singers." (Time) Staples shares the bill with the iconoclastic genius CODY CHESNUTT, who combined funk, soul, hip hop, rock, and blues on his 2002 double album, The Headphone Masterpiece, went quiet, and then returned a decade later in stunning form with last year’s Landing on a Hundred.
