May 23. From tragedy, beauty can sometimes come. New York folk rock trio the Lone Bellow, who play Mass MoCA this month, have their origin in the journals kept by singer Zach Williams as he helped his wife through temporary paralysis brought on by a horse-riding accident. At the urging of friends, Williams learned guitar, set his poignant entries to music, and formed the group with singer-mandolinist Kanene Pipkin and singer-guitarist Brian Elmquist in 2011. Describing their style as "Brooklyn by way of south of the Mason-Dixon line," the band incorporates classic imagery and lore into an updated and urbanized Americana sound and is known for an earnest attitude, insightful lyrics, and spirited live shows. On the hoofs of the band's acclaimed, top-selling, self-titled 2013 debut comes the new Then Came Morning, which was produced by Aaron Dessner of the National. (Natalia Zukerman performs June 6.) 8pm. $8-$24. North Adams, Massachusetts. (413) 662-2111; Massmoca.org.
