Singer-songwriter Dar Williams has been releasing thought-provoking albums since the early 90s and has also written a number of books. Kick off July with a moving performance by Williams in the magical barn that is Vinegar Hill Music Theatre, an intimate space with a lovely outdoor garden for pre-show cheer. Williams’ latest album is last year’s “I’ll Meet You Here,” which features songs like “Time, Be My Friend” and “Little Town.”

The legacy of the late big band leader Louis Prima is more than kept alive by his son, Louis Prima Jr., and his 10-piece New Orleans-style band, The Witnesses. Don’t expect to be seated too long when they take the stage at Boothbay Harbor. They have two albums of their own material, as well as decades of Daddy-O songs. It’s going to be a sensational evening of swing, jazz, rock and soul, so grab your tickets and be sure to put on your dancing shoes.
