    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of July 10-12
    Autumn de Wilde

    After taking some time off for the Fourth of July, Wilco is back on the road for the New England leg of their tour. The band plays tonight at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, Delaware and Saturday at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Massachusetts before making their way to New York for a concert at Keyspan Park in Coney Island and an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

    Amadou & Mariam join Coldplay this weekend for a stretch of dates in the United States; they perform tonight at the Clark County Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington, and tomorrow at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington. The duo is fresh off a stint at the Manchester International Festival in the UK, where they performed with the Beating Wing Orchestra, a Manchester organization that provides a home to migrant and refugee musicians. Click Lacanshire praised their “vibrant performance” as “heart-warming and uplifting,” and Metro said it was “fantastic,” and “confirmation that music can transcend borders, nationalities, races and colours.”

    Joshua Redman kicked off his European Tour last night with a concert at the Parque Marechal Carmona in Lisbon, Portugal with bassist Rueben Rogers and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. The trio is in The Netherlands tonight for a performance at the North Sea Jazz Festival, followed by a show this Sunday at the Musikhuset Aarhus in Denmark. Redman’s three day residency at the Montreal International Jazz Festival last weekend garnered rave reviews; The Montreal Gazette described his Sunday set with Joe Lovano as “on fire,” while All About Jazz proclaimed that Redman’s new quartet with pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland “may well be one of the most exciting new acoustic jazz groups to emerge in recent years.”

    The North Sea Jazz Festival is in full swing this weekend. Fred Hersch performs tomorrow with his Trio + 2 project, as does Brad Mehldau, in a special concert with saxophonist Lee Konitz, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Jorge Rossy. Also on Saturday, New Orleans compatriots Allen Toussaint and Nicholas Payton take the stage for a duo performance, while Bill Frisell wraps up the weekend with a Sunday concert with the McCoy Tyner Quintet.

    On the other side of the Atlantic, the Ottawa Blues Fest is underway. The Punch Brothers perform Saturday at the Blacksheep Stage and Sunday at the Rogers Stage, while The Low Anthem takes the Subway Stage next Saturday, the 18th. Oumou Sangare made her Ottawa appearance last night, and now moves on to Manitoba for Friday and Saturday concerts at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
