    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of July 3–5

    Shawn Colvin and Emmylou Harris conclude the Three Girls and Their Buddy tour with Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller tonight at the Britt Pavillion in Jackson, Oregon. Tonight's show follows two nights at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo this week. "The term 'hootenanny' was put out to pasture long ago," wrote Seattle Times arts critic Misha Berson in her review of the show, "but the four musicians who beguiled a meadow full of listeners at Woodland Park Zoo Wednesday night may want to revive it." Says Berson, "it was a delight, with all the charms of a good ol', between-friends song circle—led by some of our best troubadours, with fine odes to impart."

On Sunday afternoon, it's another free, outdoor event at SummerStage in New York's Central Park, where the French-Chad group Les Nubians and Nigerian singer Asa will peform as well.

Her current album, Seya, translates as 'joy,' a perfect summation of her music."
