katec@herald-mail.com On Tuesday, Sept. 30, the Hagerstown Community Concert Association will open its 45th season, beginning its annual "beguine" - its infatuation - with a variety of live entertainment at The Maryland Theatre. "I Get a Kick Out of Cole" is an evening of the music of flamboyant American composer Cole Porter. "I call it a revue, but not a revue," says Matt Davenport, who conceived, wrote and directed the production.

katec@herald-mail.com In her duet with Paul Simon on "Gone at Last," a gospel-leaning tune on his 1975 album, "Still Crazy After All These Years," Phoebe Snow hit the impossibly high, high notes. Her self-titled debut album, with its hit single "Poetry Man," was released in 1974. Now, 14 years since her previous original recording, Snow is back - at last. "Natural Wonder," with nine tracks she wrote or co-wrote, is in Hagerstown, and Snow will be here, too. She will perform and sign her new CD at Borders Books & Music at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 29. Her tour includes stops at Borders stores in New York and Los Angeles.

FREDERICK, Md. - One of the memories guitarist and storyteller Doc Watson has been sharing recently is about the time a faith doctor healed his father. His father had hurt his back one summer doing heavy work with a crew installing a spur line for the railroad. He had to use canes to walk, and he couldn't work or sleep on his own bed because of the pain. "When the prayer was finished, (my father) dropped his canes ... and walked over to the truck," said Watson. But Watson, who had lost his vision as a young child and was about 6 years old at the time his father visited the faith doctor, wasn't healed.
