The Ark/ Sunday, February 12

Besides hosts Annie and Rod Capps, the annual event will feature three other musical couples, country flavored The Milroys, returning for their seventh appearance in the series, bluesy Shari Kane and Dave Steele, making their second visit, and Small Potatoes, who will debut here this year. Folk music lovers always look forward to this evening of songs dedicated to love in all its many splendored forms. The Capps say, “It's an in-the-round setting, all the couples on stage at once. There's plenty of singing together, cross playing, laughs and hilarity, as we've all become good friends over the years. The concert isn't just for lovebirds; single folks will enjoy the show as well. We decorate a little, and there may be candy.” 7:30pm. $15. 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1818.
