    Olivia Chaney gave a special surprise performance at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, broadcast live from Waterfront Hall in Belfast last Wednesday.

    Chaney will tour the UK and Europe as special guest of Alela Diane starting at Union Chapel in London this Thursday and making stops in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, and France in the coming weeks. Chaney and her Nonesuch label mate Sam Amidon share a double bill at Green Note in London on May 1 for a sold-out show to benefit fRoots magazine, and she performs at The May Fayre in London later that month.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
