CRITIC’S PICK: Folk singer Newcomer has been mesmerizing audiences with her supple alto voice since her first album appeared in 1991. She was in her early thirties at the time and now that she may be ready to sign up for Medicare, her approach hasn’t changed much. That’s not an issue since her songs remain as pure, affecting and intimate as those on her new album, A Great Wild Mercy. She hasn’t lost her knack for creating music that’s beautifully crafted and she’s a riveting performer too. - Hal Horowitz
