    Emmylou Harris and Shawn Colvin are on the road again with Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller for a return to their always crowd-pleasing Three Girls and Their Buddy tour.

    On Sunday afternoon, Bill Frisell joins Bang on a Can in New York City for the group's free marathon of music at the World Financial Center's Winter Garden. The annual event, which Bang on a Can describes as an "incomparable eclectic super-mix of genre defying music" unites musicians and composers from around the world for "12 hours of uninterrupted live ear-bending border-crossing music from around the corner and around the globe." The marathon gets under way at noon on Sunday. Frisell is slated to give a solo performance second in the 2 PM hour and joins the ensemble in the 4 PM slot for the world premiere of a new piece by the guitarist.

    Youssou N'Dour closes the Africa Vive festival, which has been held in venues throughout Spain this past month, in a concert at the Auditorio de Tenerife in the Canary Islands. He had previously headlined a day-long event last weekend in Seville in celebration of Africa Day, for which he was joined by the likes of Rokia Traoré and renowned percussionist Tony Allen, among many others. These events coincide with the Territorios Sevilla festival, which Wilco headlines tonight. As Billboard reports, N'Dour stated: "It is really gratifying that African music is reaching Seville and the Spanish public at last."

    Youssou comes to the States next weekend for the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Muslim Voices festival, where he will perform with his Super Étoile band and screen the film I Bring What I Love, which documents the making of his Grammy-winning album Egypt.

The Charleston City Paper profiles the group and its Nonesuch debut, Punch, and writes that from the album's start, "the band quickly shows off the magic possible when five musicians go exploring together."
