  • Sonny Landreth & Cindy Cashdollar

February 13. The Egg's ongoing "Roots and Branches" series welcomes these two slide guitar greats for an evening of blues mastery. Louisiana-raised electric player and singer Landreth started out in thrall to Nashville pickers Scotty Moore and Chet Atkins and found his first work as a sideman to zydeco legend Clifton Chenier. His tenth solo album is last year's Bound by the Blues. Steel and Dobro genius Cashdollar comes originally from our region—Woodstock, to be exact—but now makes her home in Austin, Texas, from where she's won eight Grammys as a member of Asleep at the Wheel. (Monty Alexander hosts his Valentine's String Ensemble February 14; Kaki King kills it February 26.) 8pm. $29.50. Albany. (518) 473-1845; Theegg.org.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
