    Chris Thile launches the new season of his public radio show, Live From Here, from its new home, The Town Hall in New York City, on Saturday, with a bevy of special guests: Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Natalia Lafourcade, Sarah Jarosz, Jake Gyllenhaal, Holly Laurent, and comedian Matt Braunger. 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.

    Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price is already scheduled to performs on two episodes this season: next weekend and October 26. Her debut album with composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray, Rachael & Vilray, is out October 4.

    Composer/pianist Timo Andres gives a solo recital of pieces by Schubert and Philip Glass, as well as his own Moving Études, at Bargemusic in Brooklyn tonight, as part of the unique venue’s Masterworks series.

    ---

    Daughter of SwordsMountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig—performs on the Fletcher Stage at the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Saturday. Her debut album, Dawnbreaker, recently released on Nonesuch Records, “reveals her effortless skill as a songwriter as she delivers an homage to the betwixt and between of a relationship in its twilight,” says Pitchfork.

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi bring music from their album there is no Other to Stanford Hall in Lutterworth, England, on Sunday, for The Long Road festival. The duo heads out on a North American tour later this month.

    there is no Other, released earlier this year on Nonesuch, “is acoustic roots music at its most glorious,” exclaims Uncut, “and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament.” The album has made Rolling Stone’s list of The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far, and American Songwriter calls Giddens “one of the most important musical minds currently walking the planet.”

    Gabriel Kahane is joined by accordionist Iwo Jedynecki and pianist Aleksander Kzyżanowski in performing songs from Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, and more at Royal Canadian Legion No. 1 in Calgary tonight, as part of Honens Festival.

    Book of Travelers is “extraordinary,” raves the San Francisco Chronicle, “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.”

    ---

    Pat Metheny brings his Side Eye trio—pianist James Francies and drummer Marcus Gilmore—to the Midwest this weekend, with a concert at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Urbana, Illinois, tonight, and two in Ohio: at Southern Theatre at Columbus on Saturday and Memorial Hall in Cincinnati on Sunday.

    “This community is really about sharing,” Metheny tells the Columbus Dispatch in an interview ahead of Saturday’s show. “Older musicians were always very generous with me, and it is a fundamental part of how our collective insight continues to keep the music alive and growing. ... [Francies and Gilmore] are both incredible musicians and both very committed to the music.” You can read what else he had to say here.

    Saxophonist Joshua Redman reunites his MoodSwing Quartet—pianist Brad Mehldau, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade—for two shows at The Falcon in Marlboro, New York, on Saturday and Sunday.

    The quartet made its album debut with the release of MoodSwing in 1994. “Redman finds ingenious ways of creating a mode of acoustic jazz that is both entertaining and enlightening,” said Entertainment Weekly. “MoodSwing plays like an artistic journey.”

    ---

    Yola, touring as a special guest of Kacey Musgraves, plays sold-out shows at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica in Cleveland tonight and Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia, on Saturday.

    Yola’s Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, has been named one of The Best Albums of 2019 (So Far) by NPR Music, which says it’s an “exhilarating” album that “encapsulates country-soul lustiness, plushly orchestrated pop transcendence and a range of expression both subtle and striking.”

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
