KCP Presents is proud to announce this never-before seen collaboration by Grammy Award-winning legend Mavis Staples teaming up with multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne for their national tour, "Solid Soul".

Six decades. That’s a long time for an individual to sustain a positive and substantial impact on any industry, let alone the rapidly changing music industry. Yet from her early days with the iconic Staple Singers, when she was on top of the charts with songs like the 1972 #1 hit "I’ll Take You There", to her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples has been a leader whose music has influenced the gospel, folk, blues, funk, rock, and soul genres.

Musicians streamed to Staples’ 75th birthday celebration last fall to perform tributes to this woman who influenced them so greatly. Performers included Taj Mahal, Widespread Panic, Patty Griffin, Keb Mo, Emmylou Harris, Michael McDonald, and Grace Potter, to name a few. The event was filmed, and became the HBO documentary Mavis!

North Country Fiddler Solo Concert
7:30 PM





Patrick Ross was born and raised in Canaan, Vermont, on the border of Quebec and New Hampshire. There, his Dad taught him how to fish, hunt, and how to play music without reading notes. He wanted to be like him, so he started learning a mix of Outlaw Country and French Canadian Folk tunes at about age 6. He was lucky to have begun so young. It was a head start that led him to his first real gig at age 11. He has branched out and has been playing professionally ever since.

Jewels – Bolshoi Ballet





Tickets: Adults - $18, Members - $15, Students - $6

This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, celebrating the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone. With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the dance schools that had forged his style: Paris, New York, and St Petersburg, each represented by a contrasting jewel: emerald, ruby, and diamond. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy Balanchine’s visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece. Starring Olga Smirnova, Semyon Chudin, Vladislav Lantratov, Anna Tikhomirova, Ekaterina Krysanova, and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.
