  1. I had not heard of this player before, but I am pretty out of touch so many of you may know of her. Happened to see an Austin City Limits show last night (believe it was recorded sometime in 2020) and was thoroughly entertained. Her playing is creative, expressive and it was really refreshing to hear someone play and it was not just the same old formulaic content. She has a boat load of effects pedals and other gear, but she uses it very tastefully and it is not overbearing. She did do a little political rant mid way through the set, but again it wasn't obnoxious and only lasted a couple minutes at most. What I liked was the playing. I'll try to post a link: Austin City Limits:Jackie Venson / Mavis Staples Season 46 Episode 4606 - Bing video From seeing a few other vids of her on YT she seems pretty blues based, but a lot of her playing reminded me of Robin Trower. The most creative live playing I've seen in quite awhile.
