Powerhouses and blues legends, Buddy Guy & Mavis Staples have joined together for their “The Blues is Alive and Well Tour”. They will be performing at the Mystic Lake Showroom Sunday, February 24th at 8 pm. A few tickets are still available HERE.
Buddy Guy’s album “The Blues Is Alive and Well” is the latest triumph in his already-legendary career. With his signature sound, the Grammy-winning artist will bring the album’s singles “Bad Day” and “Somebody Up There” along with career hits that span over 50 years.
Mavis Staples first began singing with her family in 1948, moving over time from the gospel circuit to radio and eventually even to stadium shows, collecting a No. 1 hit along the way and adding almost every musical genre to her repertoire. She has performed with Bob Dylan, Booker T., Ray Charles and many other music icons. In 2017, Mavis was a guest vocalist on Arcade Fire’s single “I Give You Power”. In 2018, she also sang and co-wrote Hozier’s single “Nina Cried Power”.
On February 8th, 2019, Mavis celebrated her 79th birthday at London’s Union Chapel performing and recoding her latest album “Mavis Staples Live in London”.
