“Lilith of the Valley,” a music series celebrating female artists, musicians, and business owners in the Pioneer Valley (presented by PRIA Music Marketing), returns for its sixth series this Saturday at Bishop’s Lounge in Northampton.

There will also be artist vendors, fundraising for women’s rights and equity projects via the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts as well as a 7 p.m. panel discussion on the experiences of women in music, art, and business. Panel at 7 p.m. Music starts at 9 p.m. $10. — Chris Goudreau

‘Resonate Sessions’ at Hawks and Reed  Performing Arts Center // SATURDAY

Put together a sitar player, a 12-string guitarist, and a laoutar player, and what do you have? Some very exotic sounds. Robert Markey, who previously studied classical and blues guitar, later took up the sitar and now plays a mix of ragas and improvisations from India, Persia, Japan, and other countries. Andrew Jenkins, a former Berklee College of Music student, plays jazz, folk, and rock on 12-string guitar. And Jim Matus is the inventor of the laoutar, a cross between a laouto, a lute-like instrument from Greece, and a mandocello, a sort of large mandolin; he previously studied guitar with Pat Matheny and John Scofield. Saturday’s show is at 7 p.m. at Hawks and Reed, 4 Federal St. in Greenfield; tickets are $10 in advance/$15 at the door. — Steve Pfarrer
