    Rachael & Vilray conclude the US tour in support of their self-titled debut album this weekend, with a concert at Kimmel Center in Philadelphia tonight, and sold-out shows at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, on Saturday, and The Bell House in Brooklyn on Sunday.

    The duo performed a set at The McKittrick Hotel in New York City for fans of public radio station WFUV and later broadcast on FUV Live. “Like Rachael and Vilray themselves, the songs have a timeless quality and an unpredictable sense of humor,” writes WFUV’s Rita Houston. You can watch two of their performances here, and listen to the entire session at wfuv.org.

    Devendra Banhart presents Other Flowers, a multi-medium pop-up retail experience at Hauser & Wirth in Los Angeles this Saturday and Sunday, as part of the gallery’s annual Holiday Market. Banhart gives a solo performance there on Saturday and has curated several other performances, as well as apparel, books, personalized vinyl, photography, and paintings for sale at the market. The Los Angeles Times calls Banhart’s latest album, Ma, “sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock.”

    Olivia Chaney concludes a six-city tour of the UK, performing as special guest of Hiss Golden Messenger, with shows at CCA in Glasgow tonight and Thekla in Bristol on Saturday. The Observer calls her latest album, Shelter, “a finely wrought piece of work ... an elegant, luminous album.”

    Pianist Jeremy Denk joins vocalist Eric Owens in a performance of Schubert’s Winterreise at 92Y’s Kaufmann Concert Hall in New York City tonight. Denk’s new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, is “a thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” raves BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.

    Emmylou Harris performs a tribute concert to Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame musician John Starling at The Hamilton in Washington, DC, on Sunday. Proceeds from the concert benefit her dog rescue organization, Bonaparte’s Retreat.

    Caroline Shaw and the vocal ensemble of which she is a member, Roomful of Teeth, perform at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Sunday and Monday for the museum’s Rotunda Holiday Concert.

    Shaw’s album Orange, on which Attacca Quartet performs six of her pieces for string quartet, has garnered two Grammy nominations for its players: Shaw for Best Contemporary Classical Composition and the Attacca for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance. “A love letter to the string quartet,” says NPR. “[W]hen you hear all the imaginative sounds on Orange, you know you're listening to the voice of a strong composer.”

    Chris Thile hosts the fall season finale of his public radio show, Live From Here, from The Town Hall in New York City on Saturday, with special guests Sara Bareilles, Los Lobos, Sarah Jarosz, comedians Maria Bamford and Dave Hill, as well as performers from Broadway’s West Side Story. Folks in the US can tune in on their favorite public radio station this weekend and around the world via livefromhere.org, starting at 5:45 PM ET.

    Thile was named one of four Artists of the Decade by No Depression. "What has carried him into these seemingly unearthly realms is not some divine doing,” writes Jarosz in an essay about Thile for the site, “but rather an unmatched level of persistence, drive, tireless work, and a commitment to never settle for less than his best.”

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) concludes her tour of the United States as special guest of Angel Olsen this weekend: at The Depot in Salt Lake City tonight and Gothic Theatre in Englewood, Colorado, on Saturday and Sunday.

    Vagabon’s recently released self-titled sophomore album has received widespread critical acclaim. “Each song on Vagabon feels like a small world,” writes the New Yorker. NPR Music says the album showcases “Tamko's growth and versatility as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, poet and all-around icon-in-the-making.”
