8 p.m., Capitol Keyboard. $15-$25.
Self-described as “Swedish farm jazz,” Carnegie Hall performer and “A Prairie Home Companion” regular Inga Swearingen makes a rare stop in Little Rock courtesy of the Arkansas Jazz Heritage Foundation. Having recently released her third album, “First Rain,” the jazz vocalist has found a niche in rebranding old standards (and a Beatles song or two) with rural jazz and bossa nova sounds. Swearingen will be accompanied by an all-local backing band consisting of guitarist Les Pack, bassist Joe Vick and percussionist Dave Rogers. And for those who really adore her, she'll be in Russellville Saturday night, performing with the Arkansas Tech University jazz band.
