Responsible for some of the most recognizable and lasting soul songs of the 20th century, GRAMMY-winner Mavis Staples is a powerhouse vocalist, legendary songwriter, and civil rights activist. Staples is an alchemist of American music, and has continuously crossed genre lines to create a truly awe-inspiring body of work in her illustrious and celebrated decades-long career.

Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and even hip-hop over the better part of the last 60 years, the iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes.

It's no surprise that her career has been filled with milestones like taking the stage to sing before Martin Luther King's rallies, performing and being honoured at The Kennedy Centre, her own feature HBO documentary, and headlining at massive festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury. Staples shows no signs of stopping or slowing down with her 2016 release Livin' On A High Note and recent duet with Arcade Fire to benefit ACLU.

NPR calls her «a deep-voiced spiritual conduit with a sanctified syncopation» and The New York Times says she has «a voice that has lost none of its gutsy power since she unleashed it, some six decades ago. It's in these times that we need a voice like Mavis' and we have the pleasure of presenting her at this year's TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.

Tickets for Mavis Staples go on sale Thursday, February 2 at 10 am.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or the Jazz Winnipeg Office. Call us at 204-989-4656 or stop into 007-100 Arthur Street to purchase your tickets
