    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of August 21–23

    Shawn Colvin closes out her August tour with two Midwest dates this weekend. She performs at the Festival Theatre in Saint Croix, Wisconsin, tonight. And on Saturday, The Morton Arboretum, outside of Chicago, will play host to "two of the loveliest folk voices in show business," says Chicago's ABC7, when Shawn joins Nanci Griffith for the Arboretum's In Tune with Trees outdoor concert series to benefit the center's efforts. Shawn's last studio album, These Four Walls, her 2006 Nonesuch debut, "beautifully illustrates the human experience through story and song," says the ABC station. Next up are three East Coast dates at the end of September.

While in UK and Ireland, the band will set off on three dates, with Blitzen Trapper opening, one in London, and two in Dublin by the end of the week. That will mark the end of the European tour; US dates with Liam Finn supporting are set to begin at the start of October.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog.

La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17.
