Britt Connors livestream
7 p.m. Friday. Blue Facebook page, free, donations accepted.
The Out of the Blue streaming series from Blue in downtown Portland is still going strong, and on Friday night, you can catch a show from Britt Connors. The Boston-based singer-songwriter and her band, Bourbon Renewal, carved out their own “y’all-ternative” genre with a sound that blends rock, country, roots and a New Orleans street-parade vibe. Connors’ most recent album is last year’s “Longitude,” home to 11 tracks that bounce from pop to rock to gospel-infused Americana. Your toes will be tapping to “Beaufort Breakdown,” you’ll sway to the moody “I Told You So,” and you’ll waltz ’round your living room to the ballad “Lay My Head.”

Claudia Acuña livestream
3 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Streaming through Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, $15.
The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor invites you to a pair of livestreams from Northampton’s Academy of Music Theatre in Massachusetts featuring Latin Grammy-nominated jazz singer Claudia Acuña. There are two performances to choose from, and both are in celebration of International Women’s Day. The afternoon show is called Wind from the South and will feature a decade of Acuña’s work. It is a retrospective of her career and journey from Chile to New York City. The 8 p.m. show is called The Art of Bolero, based on Acuña’s latest project inspired by the romantic musical tradition that spans continents. The program includes some contemporary selections, as well as Acuña’s takes on traditional songs and a tribute to the legendary Mexican singer and composer Armando Manzanero, who died in December.
