Chris Ross
7:30 p.m. Friday. Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St., $10.
Hancock-based Americana singer-songwriter Chris Ross takes the stage on Friday in Camden, and you can also stream the show from the Camden Opera House Facebook page. He fronts the band Chris Ross and The North, but this will be a solo show, which Ross said will be more of a “listening room” experience. You’ll hear songs and a few stories from the artist who was New England Music’s 2014 songwriter of the year and who wrote songs like “The Long Way, ” “Mostly Sober” and “You Oughta Be.”

8 p.m. Saturday. Stone Mountain Arts Center, 695 Dugway Road, Brownfield, $20.
The discography of singer-songwriter Kris Delmhorst dates back to the late ’90s. In 2020, she released the album “Long Day in the Milky Way” and, last year, the three-song EP “Light Breaks Through.” She’s carved out a distinct sound in the landscape of indie Americana with eloquent lyricism and a clear, dulcet voice. Expect an intimate, engaging performance in Brownfield.
