● The Blue Dahlia, Saturday, Jan. 15, at 8 p.m.
French and Mexican accordion, klezmer violin, the rhythms of reggae, ska and Latin America, the sensual voice of jazz and French chanson — The Blue Dahlia’s music can be heard as an acoustic trio in the intimate bistros of New York and Paris, as well as the electric big band in venues and festivals around the world. Tickets range from $15 to $22.50.
● American Patchwork Quartet, Saturday, Jan. 22, at 8 p.m.
Highly acclaimed artists Falu Shah (vocals), Clay Ross (guitar/vocals), Clarence Penn (drums), and Yasushi Nakamura (bass) showcase the dynamic diversity of contemporary culture by reimagining timeless songs from America’s past. “A Conversation with American Patchwork Quartet” at 3 p.m. precedes the performance, and is free to attend, with reservations required, made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Patrons who attend this outreach program will also receive $10 off their tickets to see the quartet. Tickets range from $15 to $22.50.
● Best of the Eagles, Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m.
Performing the band’s greatest hits from the ‘70s, ‘80s and beyond, each member mirrors his Eagles counterpart instrumentally and vocally. This group expertly re-creates the songs, music, and vocals of the Eagles. Tickets are $30.
