The Brentano String Quar­tet ser­e­nades in St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium; James McMurtry, Dave Alvin, and Jim­mie Dale Gil­more get twangy at the Len­sic; New Mex­ico Women’s Cho­rus sings a con­cert of med­leys; and Adobe Rose The­atre presents Bus Stop

Whether you call the twangy, gui­tar-and-lyric-driven mu­si­cal stylings of Jim­mie Dale Gil­more roots rock, Amer­i­cana, or some hy­brid ti­tle like coun­try-folk bar band, there is no dis­put­ing that Gil­more is among a hand­ful of grand­dad­dies of the down-home form, with a long list of al­bums to his credit, in­clud­ing Come on Back (Rounder Records, 2005) and One End­less Night (Rounder, 2000). Gil­more joins mu­si­cal peers Dave Alvin and James McMurtry on stage at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Satur­day, Jan. 14, at 7:30 p.m. Alvin played with The Blasters, a roots rock band, from 1979 un­til 1986, when he left to join the punk rock­ers of X — all be­fore defin­ing him­self as an edgy, grav­el­lyvoiced solo coun­try singer. McMurtry — son of Larry, the au­thor of Lone­some

Dove — is a ver­sa­tile strum­mer who brings a Bruce Spring­steen-like so­cial sen­si­bil­ity to his song­writ­ing. Tick­ets, $34-$39, can be pur­chased at www .tick­etssantafe.com or by call­ing 505-988-1234. — Jen­nifer Levin
