Red Horse with Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka & Lucy Kaplansky 

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $32.25-$34.25

A folk supergroup of sorts, Red Horse features established singer-songwriters Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky, together supporting a 2010 self-titled album. The dozen tracks showcase not only their keen lyricism but wonderful harmonies, which stand well against the spare acoustic arrangements. One of the album's great thrills is hearing these skilled performers reinterpreting each other's solo tunes, notably Gorka wrapping his hearthlike baritone around Gilkyson's tender "Wild Horses." The material is uniformly suffused with somber delicacy and surprisingly plainspoken emotional power. —Chris Parker
