MUSIC—Continuing the tradition of bringing great acts to Central Oregon, Sisters Folk Festival announced its Winter Concert Series with three shows that focus on songwriters, including Martin Sexton.

With songs that incorporate folk, blues, soul, country and rock, plus nine studio albums, there are plenty of songs that could be played during this show. However, we have our fingers crossed that the song "Diner" makes an appearance! // 7pm. Sisters High School, 1700 McKinney Butte Rd., Sisters. $55 adults, $40 youth 18 and under.

MUSIC—Leftover Salmon has been sharing its unique Colorado sound with the world for over a quarter-century and in the process paving the way for many newgrass and jam bands today. Although Leftover uses traditional bluegrass string instruments, its songs are filled with soulful lyrics and are less twang and more rock 'n' roll. When watching Leftover play it's clear the band members are in love with what they do and want to share that exuberance with the crowd. Expect a night of foot-stomping and unabashed dancing to some great tunes. // 9pm. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $20 adv., $25 door. Tickets available at bendticket.com.
