UPDATE: SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO INJURY. 7 p.m. Friday. Cadenza, 5 Depot St., Freeport, $18 in advance, $20 day of show.
You can catch the show in person or instead hop on Facebook and stream it. Married with Chitlins is an acoustic music duo of Liz and Chris Lannon, and their sound is one of traditional American music, old time country and blues with some jazz standards and Celtic reels and jigs thrown in for good measure. You’ll hear guitar and fiddle with terrific harmonies. Be sure to grab tickets in advance for the in-person performance, as seating is limited. If you choose the at-home option, there will be opportunities to make donations during the performance.
