Rodney Crowell + John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band

STAR TRIBUNE + CITY PAGES PICKS

In a bit of scheduling serendipity, ex-spouses Rosanne Cash and Rodney Crowell, stellar 1980s country stars turned modern-day Americana aces, are performing in the Twin Cities on the same night — but not together. Crowell is about to release “Texas,” his collection of duets with Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and others. The always artful and articulate Cash is supporting last year’s thoughtful and challenging “She Remembers Everything.” 7p.m. Thu.-Fri. $50-$60 -Jon Bream

All-star quartet J2B2 juggles tradition and innovation amid virtuoso picking. Revered guitarist/mandolinist John Jorgenson, just on the road with Elton John, is a highly coveted genre-spanning session ace, also leading his own eclectic bands. Multi-talented West Coast stalwart banjoist/guitarist Herb Pederson co-founded the Desert Rose Band with Jorgenson. The quartet, with Mark Fain (bass) and Patrick Sauber (guitar), conjures superb vocal harmonies and instrumental work on its debut, From The Crow’s Nest, featuring diversely inflected, country-rock-infused bluegrass. 7 p.m. $35—$40. 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis.
