Mavis Staples & Nick Lowe

March 6, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The Paramount is proud to welcome back gospel and R&B legend Mavis Staples. The subject of a recent documentary and book, plus a recent Grammy winner for her Jeff Tweedy-produced album You Are Not Alone, Mavis has never been more in demand. At this performance, she is joined by the incomparable Nick Lowe. Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal.
