Mavis Staples - Newport Folk Festival 2009 and 2011

Mavis Staples seems to play here a lot, but I don't think she's played any headline shows recently. That'll change in a few months and I'm not sure I'll be in the country at the time. Which sucks for me. But anyone that can make it should. As this recording shows, she doesn't have the greatest voice, but she can put on a hell of a show and has got a great catalogue of songs to draw from. This is her complete 2009 and 2011 Newport Folk Festival sets, probably a bit too long, but you can always split them if you want.

For What It's Worth
Eyes on the Prize
Too Close to Heaven
I'm On My Way to Heaven
Wade in the Water
Waiting for My Child
The Weight
Why Am I Treated So Bad
Freedom Highway
Respect Yourself
I'll Take You There

Wonderful Saviour
Creep Along
Freedom Highway
You Are Not Alone
Too Close to Heaven
I'm On My Way to Heaven Anyhow
We're Gonna Make It
