Rhiannon Giddens kicked off the West Coast leg of her North American tour, featuring music from her new album, You’re the One, in Vancouver earlier this week, with concerts at Meany Center for the Performing Arts in Seattle tonight and The Fillmore in San Francisco on Sunday. On You’re the One, “Giddens melds the past and present, writing a bold new future for herself in the process,” says Rolling Stone. Uncut calls the album an “accomplished tour d’horizon by [a] prolific polymath.”

The Martha Graham Dance Company gave the New York premiere of choreographer Jamar Roberts’s We the People—set to songs from You're the One, rearranged by Gabe Witcher (formerly of Punch Brothers)—at New York City Center on Wednesday. Performances continue tonight, paired with Graham's Appalachian Spring and The Rite of Spring tonight and Agnes de Mille's Rodeo (in a new production) and Hofesh Shechter's Cave on Saturday. You can read more about We the People and how Rhiannon Giddens got involved in the New York Times.

Pianist Richard Goode brings an all-Beethoven program to at Koerner Hall in Toronto on Sunday afternoon, performing Six Bagatelles from Op. 119, nos. 6–11; Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109; and 33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli, Op. 120. Gramophone calls Goode's famed 1993 set of the complete Beethoven sonatas “one of the finest interpretations ever put on record.” Fellow pianist and Nonesuch label mate Timo Andres, in his Nonesuch Selects video, says: “Here’s a box you can’t live without.”

The Magnetic Fields continue their 69 Love Songs 25th Anniversary tour in Chicago, performing at a sold-out Thalia Hall tonight and tomorrow, following shows there last night and Wednesday. The concerts feature the full album, all 69 songs in order, over two nights at each tour stop.

Mandy Patinkin brings his Being Alive tour—a collection of his favorite Broadway and classic American tunes from the likes of Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Harry Chapin, and more—to Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota, for performances tonight and Sunday afternoon, accompanied by pianist Adam Ben David. His latest album, Children and Art, was released on Nonesuch in 2019.

Cécile McLorin Salvant joins pianist Sullivan Fortner and Orchestre National d'Île-de-France, directed by Bastien Stil, at Cité de la musique’s Salle des concerts in Paris on Saturday. The performance includes the debut of new orchestral arrangements by Darcy James Argue of some of Salvant’s favorite songs. Salvant tours the new program throughout France over the next three weeks. To celebrate the recent one-year anniversary of her critically acclaimed album Mélusine, which DownBeat included among the year’s best and calls “a masterpiece of thoughtful, adventurous music,” Salvant shared live performances of four songs from the album made at Oberlin College and Conservatory; you can watch those here.

Darcy James Argue and his Secret Society ensemble's 2023 album, Dynamic Maximum Tension, made year’s best lists from NPR Music, Slate, PopMatters, and Stereogum, which calls it “simply some of the most exciting music being made right now … Argue’s music shifts and whirls like an entire galaxy in orbit around itself, and it’s breathtaking to listen to.”

Ahead of Earth Day on Monday, Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered is performed by chamber choirs Ignatian Voices and Loyola University Chorale, along with guest musicians from the Ecovoice Project’s New Earth Ensemble, at Loyola University’s Madonna della Strada Chapel in Chicago on Sunday. Mass for the Endangered is a celebration of, and an elegy for, the natural world—animals, plants, insects, the planet itself—an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. The first recording, released on New Amsterdam / Nonesuch Records in 2020, features the English vocal ensemble Gallicantus conducted by Gabriel Crouch. CandyStations created the music videos for all of the tracks on the album, which you can watch here.

The Staves—the duo of Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor—take their North American tour in support of their new album, All Now, to the Pacific Northwest this weekend, with sold-out shows at Tractor Tavern in Seattle tonight and The Old Church in Portland on Saturday. “Their first record as a duo is one of the strongest releases of the band’s career,” Atwood Magazine's Mitch Mosk writes of the new album. “A product of passion and perseverance, soul-searching and self-knowing, All Now is an emboldened, cathartic release that sees The Staves basking in beautiful folk rock pastures as they take on the world ... utterly enchanting—a catchy, cohesive, and many-sided listening experience with endless returns.” The duo was on Monocle on Culture to discuss their new album, which host Robert Bound describes as “sonically rich, full of moments of euphoria,” and perform live on the show; you can hear the episode here.

Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway launched their “Down the Rabbit Hole” tour in support of their acclaimed, Grammy-winning new album, City of Gold, in Atlanta last night, continuing with a free set at Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, tonight, as part of Tuck Fest, followed by sold-out shows at The Beacon Theatre in Hopewell, Virginia, on Saturday, and Jergels in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, on Sunday. City of Gold, which won Album of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards as well as the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album, made last year’s best lists from PopMatters, Folk Alley, No Depression, AllMusic, WFUV, and Holler, which calls it Tuttle’s “most captivating record yet … A heady 48 minutes of joy, Tuttle is single handedly making bluegrass her own.”
