Waltons New School of Music have announced a search to find a support act for gospel and soul legend, Mavis Staples, when she takes to the stage at the National Concert Hall, Dublin on Saturday 3rd November.

Ireland has a great tradition of gospel and soul music, and this performance will be made particularly special with the selection of a gospel or soul choir / ensemble through the nationwide Waltons World Masters / RTÉ Lyric FM Gospel and Soul Competition. The winning choir or ensemble will perform a 40 minute set before Mavis Staples and her group take to the stage.

All gospel or soul choirs / ensembles, amateur and semi-professional, are invited to enter.

The deadline for entry is Friday 7th September and full details of entry can be found at the Waltons World Masters website here: http://www.newschool.ie/Gospel_and_Soul_Competition/Default.3283.html
