Lincoln Center Out of Doors - Mavis Staples & Joe Henry

For the past six decades, American music icon Mavis Staples has been a beacon of spiritual fortitude for artists from Bob Dylan to Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, whose third collaboration with Staples If All I Was Was Black was released to critical acclaim in 2017. Tonight, she brings us together with the power of her voice and a message of strength, perseverance, and love that is as vital today as it was when she and her family sang alongside Martin Luther King Jr. Grammy-winning producer and singer-songwriter Joe Henry, who has worked with Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, and many others, adds his poetic storytelling to this inspiring evening of song.
