    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of August 16–18
    Jack Vartoogian

    Donnacha Dennehy's The Hunger is performed by Crash Ensemble, led by Alan Pierson, along with soprano Katherine Manley and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, at Abbey Theater in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday, with performances continuing through next weekend. The Hunger explores Ireland's Great Famine with a libretto drawn from first-hand accounts by American humanitarian Asenath Nicholson.

    Nonesuch releases the premiere recording of Dennehy's The Hunger—with Pierson leading Alarm Will Sound, Manley, and Ó Lionáird—next Friday; pre-orders include an instant download of the track “Black Potatoes.” The Hunger “bears hearing and rehearing,” said the Washington Post. “It is powerful, and it makes a statement.” Another track has premiered on Second Inversion and can be heard here.

    "Working with Donnacha brought me into a new world, which I wasn't familiar with," Ó Lionáird, who also sings on Dennehy's Nonesuch debut album, Grá agus Bás, tells the Sunday Times ahead of the performances. "I've enjoyed working in that world ever since. It changed me." Dennehy spoke with RTÉ Radio 1's Arena about the upcoming performances and album; you can hear what he had to say at rte.ie.

    Daughter of SwordsMountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig—performs as special guest of Molly Tuttle at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville on Sunday. Her debut album, Dawnbreaker, recently released on Nonesuch Records, “reveals her effortless skill as a songwriter as she delivers an homage to the betwixt and between of a relationship in its twilight,” says Pitchfork.

    Daughter of Swords released a lyric video for “Easy Is Hard,” from her new album, when she announced tour dates with Wilco and Joan Shelley earlier this week; you can watch it here. She was also on New Sounds’ Soundcheck to perform songs from the album, which you can watch here.

    Yola brings music from her Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, to Old Pool Farm in Philadelphia tonight and Saturday afternoon, as part of Philadelphia Folk Festival.

    Walk Through Fire has been named one of The Best Albums of 2019 (So Far) by NPR Music, which says it’s an “exhilarating” album that “encapsulates country-soul lustiness, plushly orchestrated pop transcendence and a range of expression both subtle and striking.”

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
