Rhiannon Giddens + Dirk Powell at Helsinki Hudson

musicians Rhiannon Giddens Dirk Powell

Rhiannon Giddens is set to play Helsinki Hudson March 3 as part of a show with Dirk Powell. Tickets are available now -- they're $45 and up.

Show blurbage:

Rhiannon Giddens is best known as the lead singer, violinist, banjo player, and cofounder of the Grammy Award-winning country, blues and old-time music band Carolina Chocolate Drops. With four Grammy Awards to his credit, Dirk Powell is considered one of the world's leading experts on traditional Appalachian fiddle and banjo styles. Together, the duo forge a unique blend of American music drawing on a multiplicity of traditions.

Giddens has a new solo album coming out February 24 called Freedom Highway -- it was co-produced by Powell at his studio in Louisiana.

Rhiannon Giddens played The Egg back in 2015 and that show sold out. So if you'd like to catch this show, it's probably a good idea to get tickets sooner rather than later.

Shakey Graves at Helsinki Hudson

shakey graves musician

The Americana act Shakey Graves will be at Helsinki Hudson July 26. Tickets are currently on sale -- they're $25 for standing room / $35 for reserved club seating.

Shakey Graves is one person: Alejandro Rose-Garcia, and has performed at times as a one-man band (with a suitcase kick-drum). Here's an NPR Tiny Desk show from last December with a backing band.

Shakey Graves was last through here in March of 2015 at The Hollow. That show sold out. So if you're interested in going to the Helsinki show, getting tickets sooner rather than later might not be a bad idea.

Stephin Merritt at Helsinki Hudson

Stephin Merritt -- of Magnetic Fields fame -- is playing a show at Helsinki Hudson July 25. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $15 ahead / $18 day of.

This show at Helsinki Hudson -- "an intimate set" -- is a warm up for two anniversary shows Merritt is playing later this summer for indie labels Nonesuch and Merge, according to his website.

The Magnetic Fields have played at Helsinki Hudson relatively often in recent years (Merritt apparently lives in Hudson now). The shows have sold out (or come very close to doing so), so if you're interested in going to this upcoming show, it's probably a good idea to get tickets sooner rather than later.

Aimee Mann + Ted Leo at Helsinki Hudson

The Aimee Mann show April 18 at Helsinki Hudson has been on the schedule for a while now. What hasn't (that we'd noticed): the addition of Ted Leo to the show.* Tickets are on sale now -- they're $55 ahead / $60 at the door.

Aimee Mann is, well, Aimee Mann, famous indie singer/songwriter. And Ted Leo is Ted Leo, indie punk veteran. Recently they've teamed up to record and perform together as #BOTH (yep, with the hashtag).

When we talked with the club today, they said they'd already sold a bunch of tickets. So if you're thinking about going, it's probably better to get tickets earlier rather than later.

* He wasn't listed on the Helsinki website late this afternoon, but we called the club and confirmed it.
