    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi continue their US tour in support of her new album, there is no Other, with sold-out shows at Pico Union Project in Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday. They lead a special performance at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles and join the museum’s executive director, Scott Goldman, in conversation on Monday.

    “The connective thread [on her new album] is Giddens’ commanding and exceptionally versatile and nuanced voice, which has made her one of the most lauded singers of the new millennium,” writes the Los Angeles Times in a feature interview ahead of this weekend’s shows. You can read it at latimes.com.

    there is no Other made 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.”

    Devendra Banhart began a North American tour in support of his new album, Ma, earlier this week, and continues with shows at Crystal Ballroom in Portland tonight and Moore Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, before returning to Oregon for a performance at WOW Hall in Eugene on Sunday.

    Ma is “sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma,” says Q in its four-star review. “It feels as if all of human life is here.”

    David Byrne's American Utopia gets its official Opening Night at the Hudson Theatre on Broadway on Sunday. The show began its strictly limited Broadway run in previews earlier this month following a critically acclaimed run in Boston and a year on tour around the world. "A marvel of humanity and hope," exclaims the Boston Globe, "American Utopia brings wonder back to the world."

    Olivia Chaney performs at Kings Place in London on Saturday as part of the venue’s Venus Unwrapped series. The Observer calls her latest album, Shelter, “a finely wrought piece of work ... an elegant, luminous album.”

    Pianist Jeremy Denk joins the Amarillo Symphony, led by Jacomo Bairos, in performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 19 at Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts in Amarillo, Texas, tonight and Saturday. The program also includes works by Bach and Schumann.

    Denk can be heard performing music by all the above composers and many others on his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000, “a thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” says BBC Radio 3. The Sunday Times calls it “thrilling and deft.”

    Gabriel Kahane performs songs from his Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, and more at Morristown United Methodist Church in New Jersey on Saturday. Book of Travelers is “extraordinary,” exclaims the San Francisco Chronicle, “vivid and wholly original.” Kahane “is in possession of his own musical language,” says the New Yorker. “He is one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.”

    Lake Street Dive plays its final shows of the year in upstate New York this weekend: at Asbury Hall in Buffalo tonight and Smith Opera House in Geneva on Saturday.

    Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price and composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray head out on tour in support of their self-titled debut album, Rachael & Vilray, next month, following an appearance on Live From Here with Chris Thile next weekend.

    Natalie Merchant performs in a Hudson Valley Votes benefit concert at The Woodstock Playhouse in New York on Saturday. She is this year’s recipient of the John Lennon Real Love Award, which celebrates artists for their creative brilliance, support of charitable causes and/or enduring commitment to social activism, and will headline a Lennon tribute concert at Symphony Space in New York in December.

    Gaby Moreno continues her tour of Germany with concerts at Jazzclub Tonne in Dresden tonight and Speicher in Bad Homburg on Saturday. ¡Spangled!, her new album with Van Dyke Parks, is “a luscious, string-laden collection of songs,” writes the Guardian, “celebrating the music of the Americas from Panamanian bolero to Brazilian bossa nova. Accompanied by storied producer Van Dyke Parks, Moreno presents a beguiling argument for the power of musical migration.”

    “We wanted to imagine a project that could unite both hemispheres of the Americas,” Moreno tells The Bluegrass Situation. “It’s not just Latin American music, but music that crosses borders, can make us all celebrate the diversity and richness and culture that exists.”

    Composer Caroline Shaw joins Attacca Quartet in performing her own Plan and Elevation and Valencia, two pieces from their album, Orange, at Trinity Church Auditorium in Red Bank, New Jersey, on Sunday. Also on the program are works by Haydn and Mendelssohn.

    Orange, out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, is “a wild and free-ranging collection of chamber pieces,” says Pitchfork. "The music of Orange exudes joy and a sense of wildness.”
