Mavis Staples, Live at the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise
Plus, guest Host Poppy Tooker tells us about Food and the Blues.
BSC is proud to dedicate an entire program this week to Mavis Staples, live from the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.
Born in 1940 in Chicago, most of Mavis Staples' career has been as lead singer for the legendary Staple Singers. Her otherworldly power comes instead from a masterful command of phrasing and a deep-seated sensuality expressed through timbre manipulation.
