The Newport Folk Festival returns to Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island, this weekend. This year’s sold-out festival includes performances from several artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Rhiannon Giddens, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Natalie Merchant, Taj Mahal, and two-thirds of Mountain Man.

Rhiannon Giddens and the Silkroad Ensemble, of which she is Artistic Director, take their tour to Newport today, showcasing her collaborative compositions and arrangements with the ensemble, and to Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia on Sunday. Also in Newport today are sets from Taj Mahal, whose new album with Ry Cooder, GET ON BOARD, was released on Nonesuch earlier this year, and The A’s, a new duo from Mountain Man’s Amelia Meath and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig. On Saturday, Hurray for the Riff Raff performs songs from their Nonesuch debut album, LIFE ON EARTH, and more, and Natalie Merchant joins fellow Folk Family artists for a special set called Clusterfolk. Amelia Meath performs with another of her bands, Sylvan Esso, on Sunday.

Laurie Anderson presents Quartet for Sol at the Hirschhorn Museum Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, on Saturday. It’s the final live performance for The Weather, her exhibition at the Hirshhorn. Anderson introduces a performance of Quartet for Sol, her 1972–74 tribute to her mentor Sol LeWitt, by cellist Rubin Kodheli and others, following an opening duet from Anderon and Kodheli.
