  • Submitted photo<br/>Want to wake up your Sunday?<br/>Most folks know about the regular Thursday evening concerts at the Greenfield Energy Park featuring local musicians. However, the park’s summer schedule also includes some special weekend concerts and one is coming up Sunday. Taking the stage will be Spuyten Duyvil, which we’re told is pronounced Spite + n Dive + l.  Promoters tell us to expect “soaring vocals, traditional jug band energy, slide guitar, incendiary fiddle and Chicago-style blues harp (that) propel the listener on a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music.” If that’s not enough, they add, “listening to this joyous seven-piece band for the first time is like throwing a cherry bomb into a lake. It wakes you up.” To learn more about the Sunday concert, see our calendar listing under “Music.”

Some of these women had fallen into obscurity, but their stories have not been forgotten as long as someone is remembering their extraordinary lives and singing their songs, say organizers. Sunday, 7 p.m. A light dinner will be served by Smithsonian Caterers starting at 6 p.m. 1794 MEETINGHOUSE, on the common at 26 South Main St., New Salem.

  • “PRIVATE EYES” presented by The Actors Theater, Brook and Main streets, West Chesterfield, N.H. “Private Eyes,” says the theater company, is a comedy of suspicion in which nothing is ever quite what it seems. An affair is taking place. Or perhaps the affair is part of the play being rehearsed. Or perhaps our hero Matthew has imagined all of it simply to have something to report to his therapist. And, finally, there is the Mysterious Woman who seems to shadow the others­ who brings the story to its surprising conclusion. Or does she? The audience itself plays the role of detective in this “relationship thriller” about love, lust and the power of deception. Thursday, 7:30 p.m. Continues Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through July 13. Thursdays $12, Fridays and Saturdays $15. Reservations highly recommended. 877-666-1855, www.actors-theatre.org.<br/>
