January 30. Talk about a triumphant return. Claire Lynch, who was named 2010's Female Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Society, was born in Kingston but beat it down South to Alabama when she was 12. A few decades later and back she comes for this homecoming at the Skytop Steakhouse. Look forward to Lynch's gorgeous voice, which has graced recordings by Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Rondstadt, along with some of the amazing tunes she's penned for Patty Loveless, the Seldom Scene, Kathy Mattea, and others. The Hudson Valley Bluegrass All Stars open. (The Upstart Blues All-Stars play January 1; rockabilly royals the Luster Kings hold court January 14.) 6pm. $20. Kingston. (845) 340-4277; www.skytop.moonfruit.com.

  • Making the Cut: Decora

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.

  • CD Review: Zs' "XE"

    Higgins and current fellow Zs Sam Hillmer (sax and pedals) and Greg Fox (percussion and electronics) are nothing short of poets of noise. Even in the most assaultive moments on Zs' new record, XE, a sense of delicacy, separation, and emotive purpose prevails.
