Drawing liberally on the English folk tradition yet sidestepping New Age excess, chanteuse Heidi Berry‘s latest offering is alternately—and often simultaneously—joyful and elegiac. The British transplant’s prettily eloquent self-titled CD is her fourth, but the first available domestically. Comparably moody 4AD labelmates Red House Painters open at 8:30 p.m. at the Birchmere, 3901 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $12. (703) 549-5919. (Nicole Arthur)
