Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters [link] | The Capitol Theatre, Port Chester
On his Nonesuch debut, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, singer/songwriter Robert Plant bookends an album of brilliantly realized original material with two versions of the haunting bluegrass tune "Little Maggie," popularized in the mid-'40s by the Stanley Brothers. In the Stanley Brothers' hands, the song is mournful yet stoic as the narrator vows to leave for some "far distant land" rather than see his beloved with another man. While traces of its bluegrass roots clearly remain, Plant's "Little Maggie" veers off into intriguingly uncharted territory, a foretaste of the album to come, with throbbing bass redolent of the "Bristol sound" made famous by Massive Attack and a keening fiddle solo that was actually created by a one-stringed Gambian instrument called the ritti. At the album's close, the song is reprised in an even more striking, dub-like form, renamed "Arbaden (Maggie's Babby)." The lead vocal is initially handled by Gambian ritti virtuoso Juldeh Camara, in his native Fulani tongue, before Plant steps back up to the mic, to urgently trade vocal lines with Camera, backed by pounding drums and dueling guitars.

In Osvaldo Golijov's Azul (written for Yo-Yo Ma in 2006) the composer combines two perspectives, simultaneously observing the Earth from afar, as if from the heavens, and also plunging into the turbulent depths of the human and earthly experience.

Sean Rowe [link] | Common Ground Coffeehouse, First Unitarian Society of Westchester, 25 Old Jackson Avenue, Hastings
Presented by Common Ground. Sean Rowe has spent much of the last year traveling the country with just his guitar, performing in people’s living rooms. “It’s like I’m some kind of a bearded salesman,” he says, “Going door to door but instead of vacuum cleaners I’m selling all these feelings that come with the songs. It’s a really intense experience for listeners to have me there in their homes playing. They’re not used to having a stranger show up, play music, drink their beer and eat their food. But I think that’s how we’re supposed to be. It only feels strange because we’ve made it that way.”
