Christine Lavin: The Ark Livestream Series.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

A veteran New York City singer-songwriter who has been described as a mix of Bette Midler, Tom Lehrer, Steve Goodman, and Janis Ian, Lavin is known for the sharp wit and comically warped perspectives of songs like "Stop Sobbing … He's an Idiot" and "Tom Cruise Scares Me." She's also known for her bittersweet miniatures of lost romance, and she's a tastily tuneful composer, a superb guitarist, and a playfully unpredictable performer whose shows are always sprinkled with a healthy dose of between-songs humor and spiky commentary. Her new album, On My Way to Hooterville, includes 10 new songs and one re-worked song, "Ramblin' Waltz," a re-telling of her experience in 1975 as one of the entourage drivers for the first week of Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue.

Sarah Jarosz: The Ark Livestream Series.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Texas bluegrass-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumental prodigy whose unassumingly resonant lyricism and piercingly inerrant vocal interpretations have provoked widespread comparisons to a young Gillian Welch. "Jarosz stamps all eleven tracks with her musical vision," says No Depression in its review of her 2013 CD, Follow Me Down. "The haunting tone of her voice, the assuredness with which she weaves through the melodies, and the thoughtfulness of her delivery are all impressive … The emotional quality of Jarosz's singing magnifies the open-ended meaning of her lyrics."
8:30 p.m., for URL and tickets ($20-$65), see theark.org/shows-events/calendar/2021-05. 761-1451.
