The Currys. Friday, 9:30 p.m., The Bebedero, Charlottesville. Brought together by family ties and a shared appreciation for folk, rock, and roots music, The Currys are an Americana trio featuring brothers Jimmy and Tommy and cousin Galen Curry. Like many family groups, their songs are anchored by the sort of elastic, entwined harmonies that only seem to exist among kin. It’s been years since The Currys played their first songs together as teenage boys, swapping tunes during family reunions in the Florida panhandle. Their second album, West of Here, pays tribute to that history while simultaneously pushing the band forward, with one foot in the folksy sound of The Currys’ early writing and the other pointing toward something new. Like its title suggests, West of Here is the sound of a band on the move.

Breaux’s wine is complimented by foodtrucks with cuisine ranging from shrimp boils to raw oysters to ice cream.
Delta Rae. Saturday, 8:30 p.m., Tally Ho, Leesburg. It’s been a good few years for the relentlessly hard working six-piece folk-rock band from Durham, N.C.

Rolling Stone proclaimed that “if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae.” The stage is where Delta Rae truly flourish, having spent the last year and a half playing to sold out venues from coast to coast, even sharing the stage with First Lady Michelle Obama during a rally at UNC Chapel Hill.
