After having gotten the news about Mavis Staples coming to Stockholm for a concert, it was a quick chain of events that led us up to tonight’s show. Decisions, check schedules, tickets, success! The show was at Nalen in Stockholm, a fairly intimate venue/arena/place. Very suitable. This woman and fabulous singer delivers!
It was also interesting to hear her talk about “troubled times”, about segregation, and other things that she had experienced first-hand. It was an awesome evening, and I’m so grateful for having had the opportunity to see her perform live. Let’s hope she can manage to make the trip again sometime in the future!
After the show, Carola and I went to the Cadier Bar at the Grand Hotel. Nice and quiet atmosphere 🙂
