You could take in seven original dance competitions, catch a weekend show of local crafts or head out for dinner during Annapolis Restaurant Week. Those are just some of the fun things to do through Feb. 29.

Double bill

7:30 p.m. Thursday

Double billings are an interesting way to hear music — two musicians with different shows occupying the same space in consecutive performances.

You’ll get a chance to hear two singer-songwriters with unique voices do just that. Glen Phillips, best known as the lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Shawn Mullins, best known for the 1998 hit “Lullaby” at Rams Head On Stage. Both work in contemporary folk and alternative rock. $39.50, plus fees.

Local works


More than 30 local artisans will have their furniture, art, home decor, jewelry and apparel on display for the monthly show at The Annapolis Artisans Market. Free admission, prices vary.

On your toes

7:30 p.m. Friday

Ballet Theatre of Maryland premieres seven new works in “Momentum: A Mixed Bill” at Maryland Hall, giving audiences a taste of diverse neoclassical and contemporary movement styles.

Among the performances are Roman Mykyta’s one-act “Macbeth,” a dramatization of Shakespeare’s deathly couple. Michael West Jr. unites the music of Nashville-based Timbre in the fairy tale “Day Boy and Night Girl: The Romance of Photogen and Nycteris.”

Company principal Lindsey Bell will present “Linda Rae,” a romantic pas de deux set to Antonín Dvořák’s “Serenade for Strings,” and visiting choreographer Ashley Taylor will premiere her “Into the Light,” a journey through human vulnerability.
