The Stonington Opera House welcomes back two audience favorites for special concert events. Valerie Orth returns at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 15, to the Opera House for the first time since 2013 as part of her special record-release tour.

Portland’s Irish Trad trio Boghat takes the stage at 7 p.m. on Thursday June 22, .

Orth will celebrate the release of her new album, “Wake You.” Over the course of five tracks, Orth inspires listeners to take control of their lives and relationships.

Boghat plays the music of Ireland with a contemporary twist. From fiery reels and sexy jigs to plaintive airs and the occasional song, the trio covers the entire spectrum of the genre, experimenting with contemporary elements while maintaining a healthy respect for the tradition. Boghat’s audiences may have a hard time staying in their seats as the trio brings their exuberant tunes to the opera house – but dancing is always welcome.

Tickets cost $18.
