    Gonzalo Marroquin

    Gaby Moreno and Friends, including special guest Jackson Browne and others, headline a free concert at Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, New York, tonight, as part of Celebrate Brooklyn! Also performing are Mexico City-based Enjambre, and Latin indie folk artist El David Aguilar, as a part of the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference. Moreno can also be heard on an encore broadcast of Live From Here with Chris Thile and guests Jason Isbell and eighth blackbird on public radio stations across the US.

    As was just announced today, ¡Spangled!—a collaboration between Moreno and American musician, songwriter, arranger, and producer Van Dyke Parks—will be released on Nonesuch Records on October 4. Pre-orders include an instant download of their take on Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, and Jim Dickinson’s "Across the Borderline,” performed with Cooder and Jackson Browne, and their version of "The Immigrants" by Trinidadian songwriter David Rudder.

    Laurie Anderson brings her new virtual-reality piece, To the Moon, made in collaboration with Hsin-Chien Huang, to The Studio at The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, UK, tonight, as part of the Manchester International Festival. Presented one week before the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, the two-part work combines a dreamlike VR experience with an accompanying installation featuring film, images, and music.

    “It’s a very good time to be creating new realities,” Anderson tells the Guardian ahead of the exhibit’s opening. “The moon is a great subject for that – it’s a great way to investigate the unreal.” You can read what else she had to say here.

    Daughter of Swords, aka Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, performs as special guest of Andy Jenkins at Richmond Music Hall at Capital Ale House in Virginia tonight. Her debut album, Dawnbreaker, released last month, “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.

    Rhiannon Giddens, who is on the cover of the latest issue of American Songwriter magazine, performs at the Guelph Lake Conservation Area in Guelph Ersamosa, Ontario, tonight, as part of Hillside Festival. From there, she joins up with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi for a set at Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, Massachusetts, on Sunday, as part of the Green River Festival. And folks across the country can catch an encore broadcast of Rhiannon Giddens's 2016 Austin City Limits debut on PBS stations, featuring songs from her highly acclaimed debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn.

    Giddens’s new album, there is no Other, made with Turrisi, has been included on Rolling Stone’s list of The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far. American Songwriter calls Giddens “one of the most important musical minds currently walking the planet.”

    Emmylou Harris and her Red Dirt Boys headline the Norsk Countrytreff festival at Fjordhestgarden på Breim in Breim, Norway, on Saturday. Harris “seems almost a genre unto herself,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “An artist to whom listeners can turn without knowing how to classify her music, but secure in knowing their time won’t be wasted on frivolity … she plumbs the deepest reaches of human experience.”

    ---

    Kronos Quartet gives a free concert at Hangar in Krosno, Poland, on Saturday, as part of the Young Arts Festival. On the program are works by John Coltrane, George Gershwin, Philip Glass, Clint Mansell, and Bryce Dessner, and music from Steve Reich’s Grammy-winning Different Trains, which was originally written for and recorded by Kronos (Pitchfork included the album among the 200 Best Albums of the 1980s).

    Kronos Quartet’s groundbreaking 2002 collaboration with composer Terry Riley, Sun Rings, is available as a recording for the first time on August 30. Sun Rings is available to pre-order with an instant download of the album track “Beebopterismo.”

    k.d. lang launches the UK leg of her ongoing world tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of her critically acclaimed album Ingénue this weekend, with concerts at Bonus Area in Hull on Saturday and Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Sunday. In the words of Uncut, “Ingénue still dazzles, 25 years on. Luminous, languid and seductive to the point of intoxication.”

    Robert Plant and headlines the Rhythmtree festival at Three Gates Farm in Shalfleet, United Kingdom, on Saturday, as part of Saving Grace, his new musical project with Suzi Dian.

    ---

    Punch Brothers concludes an eight-show residency at Blue Note Tokyo in Japan with two sets tonight, featuring songs from its Grammy Award–winning new album, All Ashore. The band heads to Australia for a concert at Woodville Town Hall in Woodville on Sunday, as part of Adelaide Guitar Festival. Banjoist Noam Pikelny spoke with the Adelaide Review, which calls the new album “a fresh career high,” ahead of Sunday’s set. You can read the interview here.

    Joshua Redman and the Still Dreaming quartet—drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and cornetist Ron Miles—bring music from their Grammy-nominated self-titled album to Piazza Rinaldi in Treviso, Italy, tonight, as part of Sile Jazz, and the Hudson Stage in Delft, Netherlands, on Sunday, for the North Sea Jazz Festival.

    Redman and a different quartet —pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—released Come What May earlier this year on Nonesuch. The Times of London gives it four stars, writing that “nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road. It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one.”

    Yola joins I’m With Her (Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan) on tour in Wisconsin this weekend, with shows at Door Community Auditorium in Fish Creek tonight, The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee on Saturday, and Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield on Sunday.

    Yola’s Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, 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.”
