Terzetto, with an artist “meet-and-greet” fol­low­ing. Tick­ets are $35, avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org).

The Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany Pub & Grill (27 Fire Place, a sep­a­rate busi­ness from the brew­ery that at one time served as a hot­bed for lo­cal and tour­ing live mu­sic), closed in De­cem­ber when the busi­ness’s own­ers fell be­hind on their rent. At 7:30 p.m.

Satur­day, April 2, the space re­opens un­der new own­er­ship — and a new name yet to be de­ter­mined — with a per­for­mance by 2011 Grammy-nom­i­nated (for Best Coun­try In­stru­men­tal) blue­grass en­sem­ble

The In­fa­mous String­dusters. Whether they’re jam­ming through “Long & Lone­some Day,” “Wi­chita Stomp,” or cov­er­ing the Jerry Gar­cia fa­vorite “Deep Elem Blues,” these first-rate Nashville boys, who num­ber six-plus when tour­ing, put on a high-en­ergy live show. No gim­micks — just great tra­di­tional and eclec­tic blue­grass. Tick­ets are $12 in ad­vance from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) and $15 at the door. A na­tive Cal­i­for­nian now liv­ing in Chicago, Ashu (one name only) be­gan play­ing the sax­o­phone 16 years ago, at the age of 10. Hailed in­ter­na­tion­ally for his daz­zling vir­tu­os­ity, he makes a com­pelling case for the sax­o­phone as a clas­si­cal recital in­stru­ment. This con­cert, in which he’s as­sisted by pi­anist Kuang-Hao

Huang, spot­lights orig­i­nal reper­toire and ar­range­ments of mu­sic by Ibert, Rach­mani­noff, Villa-Lo­bos, and Pi­az­zolla. The Santa Fe Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion presents him at the United Church of Santa Fe (1804 Ar­royo Chamiso Road) at 7:30 p.m. on Tues­day, April 5. Tick­ets ($30) are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org). East Coast singer-song­writer/gui­tarist Rory Block has made it her mis­sion to help pre­serve the artistry and roots of coun­try blues. From a 1967 ap­pear­ance on an al­bum called How to Play Blues Gui­tar to 2008’s Blues

Walkin’ Like a Man: A Tribute To Son House, Block pays homage to tra­di­tional blues and still man­ages to write plenty of orig­i­nal songs that range from hard-driv­ing, gui­tar-fuzzed rockin’-blues num­bers to slow­ertempo acous­tic songs that re­call Robert John­son’s 1936 record­ing of “Ram­blin’ on My Mind.” South­west Roots Mu­sic presents Block at 7:30 p.m. Thurs­day, April 7, at the Santa Fe Per­for­mance Ex­change (7 Caliente Road, El­do­rado, 466-3116). Tick­ets for this all-ages show are $25 from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) and $29 at the door.
