Sam Amidon celebrates the forthcoming release of his new, self-titled album by performing live in concert before a safely socially distanced audience at Kings Place in London on Saturday night at 8pm BST / 3pm EDT. The concert will be streamed live. Tickets may be purchased here.

---

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.

Joachim Cooder concludes a week-long virtual tour of in-store sessions via Instagram Live of independent record stores across the US. Catch the final set via the Instagram of Electric Fetus in Minneapolis here. Cooder performs songs from his Nonesuch debut album, Over That Road I'm Bound, released today.

Marfa, Texas–based multidisciplinary artist Rob Mazurek, whose new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, will be released via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records on November 20, presents his original, site-specific project A Wrinkle In Time Sets Concentric Circles Reeling—also the name of the first track and video to have been released from the new album—at Manifattura Tabacchi in Florence, Italy, as part of the Happening! festival this weekend. The installation includes videos, photographic prints, and three performances that will stream live from Marfa: tonight at 9pm CEST, Saturday at 8pm CEST, and a duo concert for which Mazurek will be joined by trumpeter Gabriele Mitelli Sunday at 8pm CEST.

Not available to stream online, alas, but happening in person this weekend is Brad Mehldau's European solo tour, which stops at BASF-Feierabendhaus in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany, tonight and Saturday. The concerts continue in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, and the Netherlands in the weeks ahead.
