Buffy Sainte-Marie

February 24. It was no surprise when Buffy Sainte-Marie weighed in during the recent actions against the proposed North Dakota Access Pipeline; the iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and social activist is of First Nations descent and has long made the plight of the indigenous peoples of the Americas the outspoken focus of her work—leading to her being blacklisted for her views by commercial radio during the 1970s. Sainte-Marie, who, in a rare and overdue visit to our region, makes this date at the Bearsville Theater, is a pioneer of experimental folk-electronic fusion (1969's Illuminations) and the author of the much-covered classics "Co'Dine" and "The Universal Soldier" (Donovan's version of the second song was a 1965 hit). "It's about individual responsibility for war," the bewitchingly voiced singer once said about the latter tune, "and how the old feudal thinking kills us all." Her most recent album is 2015's Power in the Blood. (Martin Sexton returns February 17; Max Creek wades in February 18.) 7pm. $20, $30, $35. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406
