You could learn about early Maryland history through the eyes of a mapmaker, celebrate Black History through one family’s story, see flying Italian dancers or catch a national tour for singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz in Annapolis through Feb. 7.

The entertainment calendar in Annapolis starts to pick up in the seven days through Jan. 24, with three new art exhibits, fresh theater productions, a first album release by an Annapolis singer-songwriter and a nostalgia tour from Three Dog Night.
