November 15. One of the towering figures of soul, gospel, and R&B, the divine diva Mavis Staples first found crossover success in the 1960s with the legendary Staple Singers. In 2010, Staples, whose current tour takes her to the Bearsville Theater this month, connected with a new and younger audience when she recorded the Grammy-winning You Are Not Alone, a set produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Her newest recording, One True Vine, was released this year and finds the 74-year-old icon singing songs by Nick Lowe, George Clinton, and Low's Alan Sparhawk. (Denny Laine plays Abbey Road November 9; Conehead Buddha jams November 22.) 7pm. $75, $59, $49, $39. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406.
