Grammy Award-winning legend Mavis Staples and multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne bring their highly anticipated Solid Soul tour to 92Y for one night only.
From her early days with the iconic Staple Singers, when she was on top of the charts with songs like the 1972 #1 hit “I’ll Take You There,” to her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples has been a leader in American music for six decades. The Solid Soul tour marks her first tour collaboration with Joan Osborne, the widely celebrated singer-songwriter who dominated Top 40 radio with her hit song “One of Us” and whose albums have garnered seven Grammy nominations.
Joan Osborne opens the show with her greatest hits and emotionally evocative songs. Mavis Staples then takes the stage for a set of her inimitable R&B and gospel, including hits from her 2013 album One True Vine. The two then join forces for an unforgettable finale.
