It's not everyone who can say they were proposed to by Bob Dylan, but Mavis Staples can. That's a nice little piece of trivia, but Ms. Staples is a living legend. Mavis Staples was named by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and by VH1 as one of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll.
You can see her in concert in Greenwich on Saturday, May 19th. She and Rob Mathes will appear at Christ Church Greenwich (254 E. Putnam Ave., Greenwich).
You can buy tickets online here (just scroll to the bottom). Rob Mathes, identified by Maya Angelou as one of her favorite African American spiritualists, will join the lineup along with Tawatha Ageewho (who regularly performs with Aretha Franklin).
Tickets are $40. Pretty sweet deal for such an amazing evening!
