Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires at Bearsville Theater 

click to enlarge nh_charles.jpg
January 24. His is the kind of voice that comes only from a life seasoned with the toughest of times, a voice that stands in stark contrast to the stylized, cookie-cutter, Mariah Carey/Michael Bolton-esque talent-show filler now plaguing network TV. One listen and it’s clear how Charles Bradley, who’s set to play the Bearsville Theater, earned the nickname of “the Screaming Eagle of Soul.” The Daptone Records star, 64, has thus far woven his rough life (broken home, hard labor, murdered brother, homelessness) into the musical gold of two instant-classic albums, 2011’s No Time for Dreaming and 2013’s Victim of Love, and is worshipped for giving the most moving, knock-down-drag-out live show since his hero James Brown’s “Live at the Apollo.” (Albert Cummings burns January 11.) 8pm. $25, $40, $48. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406.

    Spring is, of course, a time of great renewal. And perhaps for the Hudson Valley music scene this year's greatest spring-renewal story is the reopening of Woodstock's former Colony Cafe as, simply, Colony.
