Rhiannon Giddens continues her North American tour featuring music from her critically acclaimed new album, You’re the One, in New England this weekend, with concerts at House of Blues in Boston tonight and Collins Center at University of Maine in Orono on Saturday. She heads back down to Massachusetts for a set at the FreshGrass Festival, performing on the No Depression stage at MASS MoCA on Sunday. “Giddens melds the past and present, writing a bold new future for herself in the process,” says Rolling Stone. “One of Americana music's most vital voices expands her sound without abandoning her roots.” “It’s easy to hear the joyous spirit in which she’s singing these songs,” says Folk Alley, “and Giddens delivers a little masterpiece of an album that showcases her commanding presence as a singer and songwriter.” Uncut calls the album an “accomplished tour d’horizon by [a] prolific polymath.”

The Black Keys bring music from their latest album, Dropout Boogie, and more to Francis Field in St. Augustine, Florida, tonight, for a headlining set at Sing Out Loud Festival.

Kronos Quartet brings its Five Decades: A 50th Anniversary Celebration concert tour to Gualala Arts Center in Gualala, California, on Sunday, for a program of works by Severiano Briseño, Gabriella Smith, Peni Candra Rini, Bryce Dessner, Sigur Rós, Nicole Lizée, and Aleksandra Vrebalov.

The group's acclaimed 1995 album, Kronos Quartet Performs Philip Glass, gets its first-ever vinyl release on November 3 to coincide with Kronos: Five Decades. You can pre-order the vinyl here. “It contains some of Glass's best music since Koyaanisqatsi,” said the New York Times. “His ear for sumptuous string sonorities is undeniable.” The Washington Post called it “an ideal combination of composer and performers.”

Natalie Merchant kicked off the West Coast leg of her US tour, featuring music from her new album, Keep Your Courage, in Washington state earlier this week, with another show in the state, at Chateau Ste Michelle Amphitheatre in Woodinville tonight, before heading to Oregon to perform at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland on Saturday. Merchant was on The Sound of Success, last week, to talk with host Nic Harcourt about her life and musical career, including her new album, the tour, and much more. You can hear their conversation here.

Cécile McLorin Salvant, accompanied by pianist Sullivan Fortner, brings music from her new album, Melusine, and more to The Argyros in Ketchum, Idaho, tonight. Salvant, who was named Female Vocalist of the Year in the DownBeat Critics Poll earlier this summer, “has already far transcended her early status as her generation's most imaginative and thrilling jazz interpreter,” says SPIN, in naming her new album, Mélusine, one of The Best Albums of 2023 (So Far).

---

Chris Thile concludes a ten-day tour of his former home state of Kentucky with the Louisville Orchestra and conductor Teddy Abrams this weekend, bringing the special concert An Evening with Teddy Abrams, Chris Thile, and Friends to Happy Top Park in Beattyville tonight, and his new piece, ATTENTION!—A narrative song cycle for extroverted mandolinist and orchestra, to Preston Arts Center in Henderson on Saturday. The program, which also features guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Branson and mezzo-soprano Sara Adams, includes Aaron Copland’s “Hoe-Down”; Prokofiev’s Symphony No.1 in D major, Op. 25 “Classical”; Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances; and Home—an original work by Branson and Louisville Orchestra Creators Corps member Lisa Bielawa. The San Francisco Classical Voice, reviewing the West Coast premiere of ATTENTION! with Thile and the Los Angeles Philharmonic led by Abrams at the Hollywood Bowl last month, called it “always entertaining … an eclectic soup that takes in bluegrass licks, rock, folk, and classical strains.”

Molly Tuttle gives a solo performance at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday as part of Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival. She joins back up with her band Golden Highway next weekend for their West Coast “Road to El Dorado” run of dates in support of their critically acclaimed new album, City of Gold, released earlier this summer on Nonesuch Records. “With City of Gold, Molly Tuttle continues her ascent,” writes PopMatters, declaring it “one of the year's best albums.” American Songwriter, in its four-star review, calls the album an “astute blend of bluegrass and Americana ... this City of Gold shines bright indeed.” Bandcamp Daily, including the album on its list of “The Best Country Music on Bandcamp: July 2023,” writes: “At this point, Tuttle and Golden Highway are must-hear attractions.”
