April Discount Passes for Area Museums

Saturday, April 1, 2017 to Sunday, April 30, 2017

Discount Passes include Plimoth Plantation where you can step back into a 17th-Century English village or explore a historical Wampanoag Homesite. The Plantation is a living history museum that recreates the small farming and maritime community built by the Pilgrims, as well as offering a glimpse into the lifestyle of the local 17th-Century Wampanoag people. The cost of museum tickets for a family can add up quickly, but the Friends of the Kingston Public Library offer a discounted pass that will help make your visit affordable.

In their book Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph Over Tragedy, veteran journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge give a Boston-based account of the events, based on months of interviews with those most affected by the tragedy. More than a true-crime book, Boston Strong also tells the tragic but ultimately life-affirming stories of the victims and their recoveries, and gives voice to many who lost loved ones.

The Spire Center for Performing Arts - Marshall Crenshaw

Friday, April 28, 2017 - 8:00pm

“One of the fundamental things about the project was that I set out to not make an album,” Marshall Crenshaw notes. “So I did this project, and now at the end of it, there’s this album, for the album fans!….” The celebrated singer-songwriter-guitarist-producer is discussing #392: The EP Collection, his new CD on the Red River Entertainment label. The 14-track set collects a dozen standout tracks drawn from the innovative series of six 10” vinyl EPs that Crenshaw released between 2013 and 2015, plus a pair of never-before-heard rarities.
