On Sunday, May 26 at 7 p.m., the Stonington Opera House will be shaking with the strains of one of the regions best guitar players, Mike Billings. Billings and his band, Big Time, will open for national indie touring sensation Valerie Orth in the first of an expanded series of concerts offered by Opera House Arts (OHA) at both its Stonington Opera House and Burnt Cove Church locations.
Orth was last seen in northern Maine at the KahBang Festival in August 2012. She has most recently opened for Shawn Colvin and her music is described as “soulful, genuine, and edgy” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Her concert at the Opera House, with her full Just A Crush band, precedes a NYC appearance at Arelene’s Grocery.
