    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 15–17
    Jacob Blickenstaff

    This St. Patrick’s Day weekend, Natalie Merchant begins a five-city tour of the US Northeast with the Irish band Lúnasa in New York. She performs as the band’s special guest in two shows—at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall tonight and Symphony Space in New York City on St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday—and leads a double bill with the band at Tarrytown Music Hall on Saturday. The tour continues with two more double bills, at The Wilbur in Boston on Tuesday and the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, New Jersey, next weekend.

    Nonesuch released The Natalie Merchant Collection—a deluxe ten-CD box set of all eight of her solo studio albums plus a disc featuring newly reinterpreted songs from her catalog and a rarities disc—in 2017. “Magnificent,” exclaimed Mojo in a five-star review, “a definitive and absorbing celebration of an artist with a singular voice and vision.” Nonesuch Store orders include an exclusive print autographed by Merchant while supplies last.

    And in Ireland, Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi conclude their tour of the country this weekend, playing a sold-out show at The Black Box in Belfast tonight and performing at Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge on Saturday. The duo spoke with RTÉ Lyric FM's Culture File about the tour, the many instruments they've brought along, and the repertoire they're performing, including some classical tunes that Giddens has adapted for the folk idiom. You can hear the conversation here.

    Giddens and Turrisi return to the US next week to join the Nashville Ballet in performing Lucy Negro Redux, for which Giddens wrote an original score, at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville.

    Olivia Chaney takers her tour of the UK and Ireland, featuring songs from her new album, Shelter, to St George’s in Bristol tonight. Shelter made year’s best lists from the Guardian, Mojo, and Uncut, which calls the album a “transcendent refuge from the storm.”

    ---

    Richard Goode joins the New York Philharmonic and conductor Manfred Honeck for an all-Mozart program at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall tonight, Saturday, and Tuesday. The program includes the Requiem and, with Goode, the Piano Concerto No. 27, which he performed with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for a 2000 Nonesuch Records release, the last in a four-part series of the artists' Mozart concerto recordings for the label.

    ---

    Kronos Quartet is at Maison Symphonique in Montreal on Saturday, performing works by Sigur Rós, Philip Glass, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, and more, including several pieces written and composed for the quartet’s Fifty for the Future commissioning project.

    “We tend to follow our ears,” Kronos founder David Harrington tells the Montreal Gazette in an interview ahead of Saturday’s show. “That’s what I do every day when I’m listening, exploring, and thinking about what would be something that could be part of our future, our next steps.” You can read what else he had to say here.

    Brad Mehldau gives the UK premiere of his new Piano Concerto with the Britten Sinfonia at Barbican Hall in London on Saturday. The program also includes four works by Bach. All About Jazz says Mehldau has “emerged as a player with a stunning virtuosity and daring ability to mine far reaches of improvisation.”

    Gaby Moreno concludes her tour of Australia with two concerts in Queensland: at Dust Temple in Gold Coast tonight and Brisbane Jazz Club on Saturday.

    ---

    Mountain Man continues its first US tour in six years at The Heights Theater in Houston on Saturday and Preservation Hall in New Orleans on Sunday, following performances at SXSW and Luck Reunion this week. The tour, which features music from the trio’s 2018 Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, and perhaps a song or two from its new two-sider of John Denver covers, continues throughout the month before picking up again in May.

    ---

    Punch Brothers, who began a US tour with special guest Gabriel Kahane in Ithaca, New York, last night, remain in the Northeast this weekend with shows at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, Connecticut, tonight; MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts, on Saturday; and The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on Sunday.

    ---

    Joshua Redman joins fellow tenor saxophonists Joe Lovano and Ravi Coltrane for the former’s Tenor Summit at SFJAZZ’s Miner Auditorium in San Francisco on Sunday.

    The Joshua Redman Quartet—pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—releases Come What May next week. The album, featuring seven originals by Redman, is available to pre-order now with an instant download of the album track “How We Do” and an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by the group.

    ---

    Rokia Traoré brings her project The Dream Mandé – Bamanan Djourou to Philharmonie in Luxembourg on Saturday. The show, comprising five musicians and six singers led by Traoré, is based on classical Mandinka music and features covers of traditional Bambara songs and adaptations of French songs.

    “The Dream Mandé project concerns traditional Malian music,” says Traoré, “but it is also proof that modernity is bringing us to inevitable changes, sometimes giving the possibility to offer a vigor and a sense to the past through contemporary concepts that go against established customs.”

    Yola closes out a full week at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, this weekend, performing at the BMI Acoustic Brunch and The Current Day Party today; a KUTX showcase, The Brooklyn Bowl Family Reunion, and Rachael Ray’s Feedback on Saturday, and Jam in the Van on Sunday.

    Yola’s debut album, Walk Through Fire, out now on Easy Eye Sound, has received widespread critical acclaim. The Wall Street Journal declares it “a stunning achievement,” calling Yola “a major vocalist that stands to be remembered as a breakthrough.” The Sunday Times exclaims: “Walk Through Fire introduces an artist who is unmistakably the real deal.”
