Nantucket Chamber of Commerce

Nantucket's Daffodil Festival Weekend has finally arrived (mid-February we were having doubts about the feasibility of spring). Just how many daffs will adorn the island for this 41st annual event? More than 3 million, according to the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce. With 10,000 visitors expected, that means about 300 daffodils per person - with plenty leftover of course for the dogs, the old time cars, and the lighthouse. More info on Festival events is here.

They're modern traditionalists, a pair of banjo players with peerless chops and a love for ballads, gospel, blues, and music that takes you into unusual corners.  And Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn are also married and touring behind their first album as a duo.  They bring their banjo mastery to our region with a pair of concert dates this week, at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford on April 12, and on Martha's Vineyard on April 15.
