Mavis Staples performed at the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island during Farm Aid 30, September 19, 2015.

Septuagenarian gospel legend Mavis Staples has only become better with age, radiating joy and positivity with her comforting vocal presence. After recording two LPs with fellow Chicago-native Jeff Tweedy, Staples latest, Livin' on a High Note, finds her teaming up with M. Ward on a collection of songs written specifically for her by artists like Justin Vernon, Neko Case and Nick Cave. Expect a career-spanning set at this special Symphony Center performance.
