Robert Plant and Yola are at Bergenhus Festning in Norway for Bergenfest this weekend. Plant and his band the Sensational Space Shifters bring music from his latest album, Carry Fire, and more to the festival on Saturday. The Evening Standard exclaims: “Inventive and exotic, Carry Fire proves Plant’s creative spark is still burning bright.”

Yola, currently touring Europe with music from her Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, performs at the festival tonight, followed by a set at Sofienbergparken in Oslo on Saturday, as part of PiPfest. Mojo gives Walk Through Fire four stars, calling it “a commanding solo debut which turns Yola’s stories of heartbreak and defiance into widescreen, Dusty-styled ballads.”

Sam Amidon is in the province of Quebec this weekend, performing at Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield tonight and Centennial Esplanade in Montreal on Saturday, for Montreal Folk Fest. He joins singer-songwriter and pianist Bruce Hornsby as special guest on his tour of the United States next week.

---

Pianist Jeremy Denk performs works by Bach, Schumann, and Hindemith at Seoul Arts Center Concert Hall in South Korea tonight. His new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, which includes works by Bach, Schumann, and many other composers, is “a thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” raves BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.

---

Adam Guettel’s The Light in the Piazza receives its London premiere at Royal Festival Hall tonight. Performances of the production, which features Renée Fleming, Dove Cameron, and Alex Jennings, directed by Daniel Evans, run through July 5.

Nonesuch Records released the original Broadway cast recording of the Tony Award–winning Lincoln Center Theater production in 2005. The New York Times called it “sublime ... the most intensely romantic score of any Broadway musical since West Side Story.”

---

Lake Street Dive continues its spring US tour with a co-headlining concert with The Wood Brothers at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio, on Saturday, and a sold-out show at Big Grove Brewery in Iowa City, Iowa, on Sunday.

---

Gaby Moreno continues her month-long North American tour as special guest of David Gray with shows at Riverside Theater in Milwaukee tonight and the State Theatre in Minneapolis on Saturday.

---

The Joshua Redman Quartet—pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—performs at District Pier in Washington, DC, on Saturday, as part of DC JazzFest.

The quartet plays music from Come What May, its first album in nearly two decades, released in March on Nonesuch Records. The Times of London gives the album 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.”

---

Chris Thile hosts his public radio show, Live From Here, from Tanglewood’s Koussevitzky Music Shed in Lenox, Massachusetts, on Saturday, with special guests Ben Folds, I'm With Her, and comedian Tig Notaro. 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.
