October 5. Hosted by Chronogram's Michael Eck, the American Roots Series at the Linda presents five programs by artists drawing from the deep and varied well of traditional folk idioms. Here's a date by singer-songwriter Syd Straw, who initially made her name in the mid 1980s as a member of alt-rock super collective the Golden Palominos. She next parlayed her Palominos notoriety into a string of critically adored solo albums that begins with 1989's Surprise, and has also contributed guest vocals to music by Wilco, Even Dando, Rickie Lee Jones, and others. (Walt Wilkins returns October 3; the Carolina Chocolate Drops' Don Flemons drops by November 6.) 8pm. $18. Albany. (518) 465-5233; Wamcarts.org.
