Mavis Staples at UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Big Island

Saturday, September 27:
Mavis Staples at UH Hilo Performing Arts Center. For more than six decades, Mavis Staples has been the solid rock of American music. Seamlessly crossing genres over the years, from the delta-inflected gospel sound in the 1950s (“Uncloudy Day”), to the engaged protest of the 1960s (“Freedom Highway”), to pop radio in the 1970s with a series of chart hits (“I’ll Take You There,” “Respect Yourself,” “Let’s Do It Again”) to various jazz and blues collaborations and back to her gospel roots today, Mavis has done it all. UH Performing Arts Center, 200 W Kawili St., Hilo. 7:30 p.m. For tickets and information call (808) 932-7490 or visit
