    Natalie Merchant to Perform Songs from Forthcoming Nonesuch Debut in London Show

    Natalie Merchant will give her first UK performance in over seven years on Monday, November 16, at Conway Hall in London. The date—An Evening with Natalie Merchant—will showcase material from her forthcoming Nonesuch album release, as well as selections from her celebrated 28-year career. Tickets are on sale now at livenation.co.uk.

    On Friday, November 13, Natalie will also participate in the gala concert at the Barbican that marks the opening of this year's London Jazz Festival, performing with Guy Barker and the London Jazz Festival Orchestra. More information and tickets for that event are available at barbican.org.uk.

    Following the Conway Hall solo event, Natalie heads to the Continent to perform at the Crossing Border festival in The Hague, Netherlands, on November 20. For information on that and all the festival's events, visit crossingborder.nl.

For the episode, Newsnight is joining forces with Newsnight Review for a special 75-minute program live from New York City, marking the 80th anniversary of the 1929 Wall Street Crash. 

    Presenter Kirsty Wark and a panel of guests, including English historian and Columbia University professor Simon Schama, will debate the political, economic, and cultural legacy of the crash, and the parallels with today's economic crisis.
