Lydia Luce
7 p.m. Thursday. Waldo Theatre, 916 Main St., Waldoboro, $15 (in-person or virtual). waldotheatre.org
“Dark River” is the latest album from Americana and folk singer-songwriter Lydia Luce, who will perform the first post-lockdown show at the Waldo Theatre. The Nashville-based artist got her start at 6 years old playing the violin, then earned her master’s in the viola at UCLA before heading to Berklee School of Music, where she studied ethnomusicology, performance and songwriting. Luce’s vocals are gorgeous and soaring, and the album bursts with strings, tenderness and songwriting gold in songs like “Just the Same” and “Tangled Love.”

Hey, cool parents with cool kids, this one’s for you! Bee Parks and the Hornets is an indie-pop rock band that combines music with puppetry and audience participation. The goal is to get kids up and moving with their feet and within their communities. The group’s all-original songs inspire kindness, equality, self-confidence, social justice, environmental awareness and dancing for the sheer joy of it. Bee Parks and the Hornets were formed in 2018 by Brittany Parker, who sings and plays ukulele and electric guitar. Here’s hoping they play “Bee Yourself”!
