Sarah McLachlan performs Friday and Saturday, June 20 and 21, at Chateau Ste. Michelle.

Among the special moments in Harry Connick Jr.’s sold-out concert Friday night at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery was a silky father-and-son duet of “Bye Bye Blackbird” featuring Harry Connick Sr.

Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch writes: With a swaggeringly chunky saxophone riff and a tricky bit of bass-drum syncopation, David Byrne and St. Vincent got their concert at Chateau Ste. Michelle winery off to a glorious start on Thursday night. That riff belonged to “Who,” the opening track on the duo’s 2012 album, “Love This…
