GLENN JONES

4/9 at 8:30 A master of John Fahey–style American primitive guitar, Jones is a finger-picking machine. Naturally, he makes it look easy—his music sounds simple enough—but for decades the songwriter has woven intricate storytelling into each of his tracks. $10–$12. Constellation, 3111 N. Western. ticketfly.com

HABIB KOITÉ AND VUSI MAHLASELA

4/6 at 7 Malian singer Habib Koité’s dynamism shines through in his muscular vocal techniques, equal parts charismatic and familiar. The singer’s energetic live show should capture new and old fans alike. $28–$30. Old Town School of Folk Music, 4544 N. Lincoln. oldtownschool.org
