He was raised in Nicaragua. He once worked as a sailor along the Hud­son River. And sin­gin’ is in his blood. Singer-song­writer

Tao Ro­driguez-Seeger — grand­son of the le­gendary Pete Seeger — and his band are headed to Mike’s Mu­sic Ex­change in El­do­rado (7 Caliente Road, 466-2782) for a show at 7 p.m.

Thurs­day, July 29. Tao’s re­cently re­leased al­bum, ¡Rise and Bloom! — par­tially recorded and pro­duced at Jono Man­son’s stu­dio, The Kitchen Sink, in Chu­padero, N.M. — of­fers up an ar­ray of tunes in the spirit of the elder Seeger’s loves: blue­grass, rock, and in­ter­na­tional folk tra­di­tions. Jono Man­son also per­forms; ad­mis­sion is a sug­gested $15 do­na­tion. At 7 p.m. Thurs­day, July 29, Lyle Lovett and His Large Band per­form at Paolo So­leri Am­phithe­ater (1501 Cer­ril­los Road) in what may be the last hur­rah for the pop­u­lar lo­cal con­cert venue (it will re­port­edly be de­mol­ished with the bless­ing of Santa Fe In­dian School trustees and the All In­dian Pue­blo Coun­cil). Lovett brought his catchy com­pos­ite of coun­try, blues, gospel, and retro jazz to the Paolo So­leri in 2008, and his re­turn sig­nals ei­ther a fu­neral or a last-ditch-ef­fort re­vival for the struc­ture, de­signed by the Ital­ian Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect of the same name. Tick­ets, $42 and $62, are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (www.tick­etssantafe.org, 988-1234). Seven times a day, chants fill the chapel at the monastery of Christ in the Desert, out­side Abiquiú, as the res­i­dent Bene­dic­tine monks punc­tu­ate their lives with prayer­ful ren­di­tions of age-old sa­cred songs. Some of their pre­scribed chants re­cur ev­ery day, while oth­ers vary as the litur­gi­cal year un­folds. Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val hosts 12 of the broth­ers in a con­cert at 5 p.m. Satur­day, July 24, in St. Francis Au­di­to­rium, New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.). Their pro­gram, in Latin, in­cludes all the mu­sic for the Mass of Cor­pus Christi writ­ten by St. Thomas Aquinas in the 13th cen­tury. Tick­ets, $26 and $33, are avail­able by call­ing 982-1890 or from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (www.tick­etssantafe.org, 988-1234). The 28th sum­mer sea­son of the Santa Fe Desert Cho­rale con­tin­ues at 8 p.m. Tues­day, July 27, at the Santa Fe Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter (463 Paseo de Per­alta). The evening’s pro­gram, ti­tled

The Ro­man­tic Gui­tar, in­cludes lo­cal gui­tarist Roberto Capoc­chi per­form­ing A Pro­ces­sion Wind­ing Around Me (a set­ting of Walt Whitman’s Civil War po­ems), works by Schu­bert, and works for voice and gui­tar from Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Ro­mancero

Gi­tano, which fea­tures ma­te­rial from Fed­erico Gar­cía Lorca’s po­etry se­quence. The pro­gram re­peats at the Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter on Thurs­day, Aug. 5.
