Gregg Allman, Patty Griffin and Eric Church are among the musicians who are lining up to pay tribute to veteran R&B and gospel singer Mavis Staples at a special birthday concert later this year (14).

Aaron Neville, Michael MCDonald and Taj Mahal, among others, have also signed up to salute The Staples Singers star at the I'll Take You There - Celebrating 75 Years of Mavis Staples gig in her native Chicago, Illinois.

Staples herself will join her former collaborators and peers onstage to belt out her most famous hits at the 19 November (14) show.

She marked the age milestone in July (14).
