On Friday night Mavis Staples and Joan Osborne kicked off the 34-date Solid Soul Tour at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Opening night of the co-headlining tour came to a climax when the pair brought out special guest Bonnie Raitt to help end the show.

Osborne, Staples and Raitt combined forces on a cover of the traditional song “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” Mavis explained that the song was the first one her father, the legendary Roebuck “Pops” Staples, taught her and her siblings in 1950. Staples sang the first verse, while Raitt showed off her slide guitar skills. Later both Osborne and Raitt led verses of their own.
