    Rhiannon Giddens, at precisely the same time as Amidon's London concert, performs with Francesco Turrisi live at National Concert Hall in Dublin, at 8pm IST / 3pm EDT. That concert, part of NCH's Imagining Ireland series of live events, will also be streamed live. Tickets are available here.

    Just a few hours later, Giddens and Turrisi may be seen performing again, as part of the online edition of the annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, called "Let the Music Play On." Perennial Hardly Strictly favorite Emmylou Harris performs as well, as does fellow Nashville resident Yola. The free, one-time broadcast of the three-hour event, featuring footage from the artists' hometowns and favorite venues, starts at 5pm EDT / 2pm PDT.

The concerts continue in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, and the Netherlands in the weeks ahead.

    Sam Amidon’s self-titled album is out digitally and on CD today, with the vinyl due January 22. "A fine showcase for Amidon’s studio experimentation," says Rolling Stone; "incorporates elements of spacious, echoing ambient electronic music to complement Amidon’s warm vocals, reminiscent of Nick Drake and Arthur Russell." No Depression says "this LP, full of delicate noise and artful sophistication, deserves a pause in a harried time." A video of the album track "Cuckoo," recorded live in concert at Kings Place in London earlier this month, can be seen here.
