You’ve got two chances to see Paula Cole this weekend with shows in Brownfield and Gardiner. In May, she released the album “American Quilt,” home to 11 songs that capture the history of American music with her interpretations of songs like “Wayfaring Stranger” and “Black Mountain Blues.” You’ll also likely hear some of her hits like “I Don’t Want to Wait” and “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?”  from her 1997 album “This Fire,” which won her a Grammy for best new artist.

The Boneheads

Make no bones about it, Maine’s The Boneheads will knock your socks off which is something they’ve been doing for decades. Comprised of Bob Colwell (vocals, keys), Scott Eliot (bass, vocals, guitar), Dickie-Doo Hillis (drums, vocals) and Steve Jones (guitar, vocals), the band plays a mix of blues, country, Cajun, folk and rock. You’ll hear plenty of originals as well as some sensational covers, and if you need to kick up your heels and dance, it’s doubtful anyone will try and stop you.
