Thu, 11/18/2021 - 1:30pm

    We’re heading into the crest of a wild weekend, the calm before the storm (literally) next week with storms coming in ahead of Thanksgiving. So, enjoy music from some talented sisters, a magical fantasy ride, a bountiful fall harvest, and a new business opening. I told you it’d be wild.

    The Wolff Sisters

    Friday, November 19—Camden


    Boston-based sisters Rebecca, Rachael, and Kat Wolff are coming to the Camden Opera House. Just named New England Music Awards' 2021 Americana Artist of the Year, the trio’s music “is honest and genre-defying, but still rooted in traditional rock and Americana storytelling,” according to their website.  Here’s a song about Boston they perform called “Boston Town.” Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Choose-your-own reserved tickets are $20 in advance, $26 day of show.FMI: Tickets

    Garden Aglow

    Saturday, November 20 & Sunday, November 21—Boothbay


    It is TOO EARLY to be posting any Christmas events but Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens gets a pass because their annual Gardens Aglow is beyond Christmasy; it’s what Lisa Kristoff calls “A magical ride into fantasy.”  The Covid-19 virus changed what used to be a walking tour into a driving tour, but that’s a good thing. As Kristoff said, “we’re all in need of a beautiful distraction.” Arrival times are every 15 minutes, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thurs.-Sun. $40 per nonmember car/$30 per member car. Advance tickets are required. FMI: Tickets and Details
