On Saturday September 17th 2016, WiL will be opening for legendary roots soul songstress Mavis Staples at The Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary Alberta.
If you’re old enough, you may remember Mavis Staples from the gospel soul group The Staples Sisters. If you are more tuned into the current music scene, you may know that Mavis Staples is not one of those oldies churning out dated hits from days gone by. In fact, she has won two recent grammy awards; the first in 2011 for Best Americana Album, produced by frontman Jeff Tweedy of the alt country group Wilco and most recently, won ‘Best Roots Performance‘ at 2016 Grammy Awards for ‘See That My Grave Is Kept Clean’ off the New Album “Livin’ On A High Note”, produced by the remarkable songwriter/artist/producer, M. Ward.
Tickets for Mavis Staples with Special Guest WiL are on sale HERE.
