Musician Maia Sharp and her insanely terrific guitar player Linda Taylor will be gracing the stage this Saturday night (July 14) at One Longfellow Square. Get thte skinny on tickets here:
Sharp's latest album, "Change the Ending" is scheduled for an official release on August 28th but rumor has it, Sharp will have a right-out-of-the-oven stack with her at the show.
Here's a clip of Maia singing "I Don't Want Anything to Change"

Bonnie Raitt loved this song so much she recorded it on her 2005 album "Souls Alike." Here's Bonnie singing it live with another friend of hers, Ms. Norah Jones.
Along with a string of solo dates, Sharp will be repeating history and she once again joins Raitt on tour for several dates this fall. Sharp opened for - and played with- Raitt during Raitt's 2005 "Souls Alike" Tour and this tour included a memorable performance right here in Portland at Merrill Auditorium.
Opening the show is another crackerjack artist, Garrison StarrTweet
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
