concert 1: Mavis Staples, recorded at Koerner Hall in Toronto
Mavis Staples has had a career like few others. She began singing professionally more than 60 years ago with her work with her family band, The Staples Singers, lead by her father Pops Staples. The Staples Singers began singing in churches and for community events, but by the time Mavis was out of high school they had graduated to a hit-producing and national touring act. By the 1960s The Staples Singers were at the forefront of the civil rights movement. Fast forward to 2010, which found Mavis Staples in an unlikely collaboration with fellow Chicago resident Jeff Tweedy (best known as the front man for indie rockers Wilco). Together Jeff and Mavis produced the Grammy-winning album You Are Not Alone. This collaboration led to a new interest in Staples' career and introduced her to a new generation of fans. Canada Live caught up with Mavis Staples at Koerner Hall in Toronto where she performed with a blues trio of bass, drums and guitars, backed by a singing group that included Vicki Randle, Donny Gerrard and Yvonne Staples.

concert 1: Big Sugar, recorded at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom, October 22nd, 2011
Big Sugar is back! And they're getting back on the Canadian music map in a big way with their first tour since 2003 and a new studio album, Revolution Per Minute. Big Sugar's front man Gordie Johnson and the well-seasoned band were limber and the creative juices were flowing. Mixing reggae, blues, rock, folk, and funk, Big Sugar delivered the goods to the sold out audience. The new tunes are also loose, as groovy as Big Sugar has ever sounded. Gordie and the band were obviously having a good time -- and so was the audience.
