    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of August 26–28

    With Hurricane Irene expected to make landfall along the East Coast of the United States this weekend, from North Carolina to New England, anyone planning to attend concerts in the affected areas should check in with the venue to confirm whether the shows will go on as scheduled. Stay safe!

    Punch Brothers and Jessica Lea Mayfield are scheduled to share a double bill at the Belleayre Music Festival in upstate New York on Saturday night, the festival’s penultimate concert for the season. The series takes place at the Belleayre Conservatory in the beautiful Catskill Mountains in Highmount, New York, and launched its summer season with another group of Nonesuch artists, when k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang stopped by on their North American tour.

    Also scheduled for this weekend, Punch Brothers are due to take on Fairfield, Connecticut's StageOne tonight and head to the Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia, on Sunday, as special guests of pianist Bruce Hornsby. Mayfield's concerts at The Saint in Asbury Park, New Jersey, tonight and at the Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday have been postponed due to the hurricane.

    Pat Metheny's Summer Music Workshop, in association with the National Guitar Workshop, comes to a close today.

    Joshua Redman travels to Austria this weekend for a show on Sunday at the 32nd international Saalfelden Jazz Festival. He joins The Bad Plus as a special guest for a performance on the festival's main stage.

    Earlier this month, Redman performed with his new quartet James Farm at the Caramoor Music Festival. "James Farm is a group of extremely talented musicians whose recent self-titled album is a tour de force," writes the Huffington Post's Ralph Miriello in a review of the event. "With such extraordinary musicianship it is little wonder that these guys create compelling music. While some groups seem to star one particular player, James Farm has taken a collective approach that works wonderfully. Each musician is both virtuoso and composer in his own right and they have subdued their own egos for the betterment of the musical message to great success." Read the review at huffingtonpost.com.
