Mavis Staples - and I weep - remembering The Greenbelt Festival gig.

I was incredibly moved this week
when I was watching a documentary about
Mavis Staples / The Staple Singers
on SKY ARTS TV

#MavisStaples was at 
#Greenbelt #Festival a few of years ago - 
Here and below you see some photos with a Greenbelt crowd + myself.

Tthe #TV #PROGRAMME about 
#Mavis - just go to your Skybox, if you have one, to catchup #SkyArts now. 
Powerful how they featured into their set, as Gospel Singers,  #Civil Rights / #Freedom movement songs in the #US #USA 

The programme 
Includes #Dylan and  #Prince too

Photo here is Simon Mayo and me with Mavis.

Below a whole album to play via YouTube






.......AND a little video of mine grabbed at Greenbelt on my iPhone
