Despite her major-label stint, New York address and late-night television appearances, a chunk of the Triangle will always consider Tift Merritt the local country-teasing songwriter with the warm voice—the one at Humble Pie, or The Cave, or moonlighting with Two Dollar Pistols. And at first glance, classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein—born in New York, the daughter of a painter, with a new collection of Bach works due on Sony this month—might seem to have nothing in common with the area's favorite chanteuse. But she raised money to self-fund her breakthrough recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations, offering evidence of her DIY mettle even from the classical realm. What's more, she plays with the same radiance and delicacy that makes Merritt's songs so notable. This is the world premiere of their new collaboration, Night. Merritt and Dinnerstein host a free listening session at The Pinhook on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., followed by open lectures and master classes by both on Thursday. —Grayson Currin
