December 12. Singer-songwriter and comedienne Cheryl Wheeler has seen her often hilarious songs covered by Peter Paul & Mary, Garth Brooks, Suzy Bogguss, Melanie, and Bette Midler. Steve Forbert left his Mississippi home for the streets and stages of New York in the 1970s and became one of the post-Dylan era's most critically adored songwriters; his 1979 single "Romeo's Tune" was a huge AM radio smash. This performance at Infinity Music Hall and Bistro
finds Wheeler and the Grammy-nominated Forbert in solo and duo settings for "a night of storytelling through songs." (Fastball flies in December 5; Crystal Gayle croons December 6.) 8pm. $39, $59. Canaan, Connecticut. (860) 542-5531.
