Boston shows this weekend

Friday, March 26th, Senegalese singer Baaba Maal is performing at the Somerville Theatre at 8pm. This is part of World Music's spring 2004 concert series. They write: Baaba Maal, one of Afro-pop's biggest superstars, appears in Boston for a special acoustic concert featuring Mansour Seck on guitar and vocals, Lansine Kouyate on balafon, Barou Sall on hoddu, Mama Gaye on guitar, and others. Experience the pure, vital energy of one of the world's most powerful performers in a unique and intimate setting.

Saturday, March 27th, Eddie From Ohio will be at the Somerville Theatre, with Fruit Trio (acoustic) opening. Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm, tickets $22.50. On Sunday night, EFO will be at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA.

The Somerville Theatre is at 55 Holland Ave in Davis Square, right next to the Davis stop on the red line, and shows there are all ages. Their phone number is 617-628-3390.

Sunday, March 28th, Mike Seeger is coming to Cholmondeley's Coffeehouse at Brandeis. He plays fiddle and banjo, and is known for playing and promoting roots folk music of the past. He's also a musicologist at the Smithsonian, and Pete Seeger's half-brother. The show will be at 8pm, free with a student ID (any college, I think), and $10 otherwise - though chumleys is a small space and it may be packed. It's located in the castle at Brandeis University, and is also all ages. This show is co-sponsored by WBRS, and I may be running sound. Sam Petsonk, who took over from me as DJ of Southern Rail at WBRS two years ago, put this concert together.
