    Nonesuch Events for the Long Weekend of January 18–21
    Josh Goleman

    Gabriel Kahane kicks off a six-city tour of the US West with a performance at Globe Hall in Denver on Sunday. The tour, featuring music from his new album, Book of Travelers, runs through the end of the month and includes stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. The album, his Nonesuch debut, made a year's best list from The New Yorker, and NPR Music named the album track "November" one of the year's best songs.

    “The album is full of deeply felt lyrics, exquisitely composed piano accompaniments, unexpected harmonic and rhythmic twists, and stylistic flourishes taken from jazz, blues, classical, and American folk music,” says San Francisco Classical Voice in an interview with Kahane ahead of the tour. You can read what he had to say at sfcv.org.
