Music Notebook: Valerie June San Diego-bound with her ‘The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers’ tour

Valerie June, with Caitlin Jemma

Few albums released last year were as memorably titled or as musically enchanting as Valerie June’s “The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers.”

And fewer still so deftly fused pop, country, bluegrass, gospel, blues, vintage Memphis soul, jazz and the Afrobeat popularized by Nigeria’s Fela Kuti.

At various times in her career, June has dubbed her synthesis “cosmic ethereal heart music” and “organic moonshine roots music.”

Under any name, this Tennessee native stands out with her distinctive, affectation-free sonic gumbo. Or, as she described her work in a 2014 Union-Tribune interview: “It just bridges so much about Southern culture. When old blues and country were created, music didn’t have boundaries. People were just trading songs, and I love that.”

June has added more elements to her stylistic fusion over the years and “The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers” is the most assured of her five albums to date.

Earthy and urbane, it mixes her proudly left-of-center songs with wonderfully distinctive versions of Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon,” John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Stephen Foster’s “Beautiful Dreamer.”

Her warmly intimate singing style at times suggests an understated combination of Dolly Parton, Memphis Minnie and Macy Gray.

9 p.m. Saturday. Belly Up, 143 South Cedros Ave, Solana Beach. $25 (advance) and $28 (day of show) for general admission tickets; $44 reserved loft seating. Must be 21 or older to attend. (858) 481-8140. bellyup.com At Valerie June’s request, all concertgoers are asked to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. Proof of vaccine or of a negative Covid-19 test result within 48 hours of the performance are required.

Aoife O’Donovan

Grammy Award-winning troubadour Aoife O’Donovan gets around, musically speaking.

She sang here last summer with Goat Rodeo, the bluegrass-meets-chamber-music group co-led by Yo-Yo Ma and Nickel Creek’s Chris Thile. Her other collaborators range from Loudon Wainwright III, jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas to Sarah Jarosz and Sara Watkins, her bandmates in the trio I’m With Her.

But O’Donovan shines brightest on her own and her exquisite new album, “Age of Apathy,” evokes Joni Mitchell in her prime, not as a destination but as a point of reference and departure.

8 p.m. Wednesday. The Loft at UC San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla. $9 (students), $23 (general admission), $28 and $35 (reserved). (858) 534-8497; artpower.ucsd.edu

Sean Jones “Dizzy Spellz,” featuring Brinae Ali

The elements trumpeter Sean Jones and dancer and singer Brinae Ali draw from for “Dizzy Spellz” range from tap dancing, hip-hop and jazz to Afro-Cuban music, the American South and New York City.

Their multimedia collaboration examines various facets of the African-American cultural experience through the lens of the late jazz giant Dizzy Gillespie.

8 p.m. April 14. The Loft at UC San Diego. 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla. $9 (students), $28 (general admission), $33 and $40 (reserved). (858) 534-8497. artpower.ucsd.edu
