Mavis & Friends: Celebrating 80 Years of Mavis Staples

Mavis Staples is thrilled to announce three celebratory shows commemorating her 80th birthday this year. Presented by Newport Folk, the shows will take place this May at New York City’s Apollo Theater, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Los Angeles’s Theatre at Ace Hotel. Called ‘Mavis & Friends: Celebrating 80 Years of Mavis Staples’, the trio of shows will feature Mavis and special guests each night. Proceeds from the Mavis & Friends shows will go directly towards extending the Newport Festivals Foundation’s support of music education programs in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles.
