SOULFUL SUNDAY With A New MAVIS STAPLES And LEVON HELM Live Album

Soulful reveries for the laziest day of the week

22 May 2022

Iconic singer MAVIS STAPLES is an alchemist of American music. During her 70+ year career, one of her favorite musical moments was her performance in Martin Scorsese’s
film The Last Waltz about the final concert of Americana heroes The Band. With The Staple Singers, she sang along with The Band to their classic diamond The Weight.

Since then Staples and the late great drummer/vocalist LEVON HELM became close friends and worked/played together many times. Like in the summer of 2011 when Helm invited her to his Woodstock studio for one of his Midnight Rambles Live Shows that he produced and broadcasted. Recordings of the duo’s performance are now cleaned up and cemented in a new live album, baptized CARRY ME HOME with their versions of great songs by Bob Dylan, Curtis Mayfield, The Band, and more.
