The Ticket: Folk and country

JON LANGFORD’S FOUR LOST SOULS The latest project from prolific, inveterate collaborator Jon Langford found him in Alabama with some fellow Chicagoans (including phenomenal singers Bethany Thomas and Tawny Newsome), hooking up with Muscle Shoals legends for some sweet country soul. This Tuesday, his Four Lost Souls reprise what resulted. Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m. $15. Atwood’s Tavern, Cambridge. 800-838-8006,

THIS IS THE KIT Paris-based English artist Kate Stables has been using the moniker This Is The Kit for a decade now, gathering a shifting collective of players to make four records. She visits in support of “Moonshine Freeze,” the latest offering of her murmuring, understated version of folk music. Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m. $12. Great Scott. 888-929-7849,

JULIET SIMMONS DINALLO AND MICHAEL DINALLO This isn’t a “Juliet and the Lonesome Romeos” show, but “Juliet and Michael and the Blue Lonesome Romeos,” which suggests that what’s on tap is not just Simmons Dinallo’s fine Americana, but some of the soulful roots fare that Michael Dinallo essays on his debut solo release, “Crooked Road Songs,” as well. Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m. No cover. Toad, Cambridge. 617-497-4950,
