Gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples came to fame as the lead singer of the Staples Singers. In the new millennium, she is enjoying a resurgence of popularity and prestige, in part because of a pair of recent albums produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and featuring new material written by Nick Lowe and George Clinton, among others.
Mavis Staples and special guest Ryan Montbleau appear at the Bearsville Theater on Friday, November 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $75, $59, $49 and $39. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information, call (845) 679-4406 or visit www.bearsvilletheater.com.
