    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of June 21–23
    Michael Wilson

    Brad Mehldau and his Quintet—trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, saxophonist Joel Frahm, bassist Joe Sanders, and drummer Leon Parker—continue their weeklong residency at Village Vanguard in New York City this weekend, with sold-out early and late shows each night tonight, Saturday, and Sunday.

    Akinmusire and Frahm are among the many guest performers on Mehldau’s new album, Finding Gabriel, out now on Nonesuch Records. The AP calls it “a soundtrack for our times … fetching melodies abound.” Mojo says it’s “magnificent … Mehldau and his cohorts create an immersive series of storytelling tone poems enhanced by horns, strings, and choir-like vocals.”

    Emmylou Harris is at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia on Saturday, performing a set on the Lawn of the Art Museums for the Virginia Arts Williamsburg Live Festival. 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.”

    Gabriel Kahane returns to New York City for a homecoming concert at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2, on Sunday. He released his Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, last year, earning great critical acclaim, with the San Francisco Chronicle calling it “extraordinary … vivid and wholly original.” Kahane “is in possession of his own musical language,” writes the New Yorker. “He is one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.”

    Kronos Quartet live-scores filmmaker Sam Green’s A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York, tonight as part of the Hamptons International Film Festival. The multimedia experience—called “mind-blowing” by Newsweek and “magical" by the Los Angeles Times—blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with some of the many artists with whom Kronos has collaborated, like Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley.

    Lake Street Dive and Punch Brothers return to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado to celebrate the summer solstice at the 46th annual event this weekend. Lake Street Dive brings music from its 2018 album, Free Yourself Up, to the main stage this evening.

    Punch Brothers take the main stage on Sunday evening, followed by a performance at the Sheridan Opera House, taking their usual spot to close the festivities and the intimate, indoor NightGrass sets. The band released its Grammy Award–winning new album, All Ashore, on Nonesuch last year. The Boston Globe says it's “a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record.”

    The latest episode of his new podcast, Digging Deep, digs deep into "Bones of Saints," a song from his latest album, Carry Fire. "If it gets anywhere at all, this music, it ought to be saying something, it ought to be reflecting," he says. You can listen to the episode and watch the video for the track here.
