    Gabriel Kahane Begins 2019–20 Concert Season
    Josh Goleman

    Gabriel Kahane begins his 2019–20 concert season with a performance of songs from his 2018 Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, at Royal Canadian Legion No. 1 in Calgary on Friday night as part of the Honens Festival. The season ahead brings several concerts featuring music from the album, including an evening with string quartet in Seattle and performances of Pattern of the Rail: Six Orchestral Songs from 'Book of Travelers' with Oregon Symphony, of which he was recently named Creative Chair, and Louisville Orchestra. Kahane's currently scheduled season culminates in a triple-bill concert with Caroline Shaw and Attacca Quartet at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, on May 3, 2020. See below for details and tickets, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Book of Travelers is a musical travelogue about the looping railway journey across the US Kahane embarked upon the day after the 2016 US election and the people he met along the way. "Exquisitely crafted," says Uncut. "Musically fascinating and hauntingly empathetic." "Extraordinary," says the San Francisco Chronicle; "vivid and wholly original." Rolling Stone calls it a "stunning portrait of a singular moment in America."

    To pick up a copy of Book of Travelers, head to your local independent record store, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, or listen on Apple Music and Spotify

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
