Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the free annual outdoor music festival held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with a stellar line-up of performers that includes a number of Nonesuch artists. Carolina Chocolate Drops (whose recent appearance on the Tavis Smiley show is being rebroadcast on PBS stations tonight), Randy Newman, Emmylou Harris, and T Bone Burnett will each take the stage in Golden Gate's Speedway Meadow over the festival weekend, which runs October 1–3. Specific performance dates and times are still to be announced.

Among the other scheduled performers familiar to fans of Nonesuch are Steve Earle and Sharon Jones, who are both featured on David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's recent Nonesuch collaboration, Here Lies Love; Jimmie Dale Gilmore, whose album After Awhile was released on Nonesuch in 1991; and frequent Emmylou Harris collaborators Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, and Gillian Welch, who also appears on Sara Watkins' Nonesuch debut album.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog. This very special, multi-camera, one-night-only performance will be broadcast via YouTube; tickets go on sale this Friday. La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17. The new track is "glorious," says Uncut; Mojo calls it "a show-stopper."
