FOLK

Singer/songwriter, activist and women’s music pioneer Holly Near comes to town for the first time in many moons in support of the ambitious two-disc set “Peace Becomes You.” It ranges all over the map: jazz standards, folk, lounge pop, a hootenanny sing-along (“There’s a Meetin’ Here Tonight”), a “My Fair Lady” hit (“I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”), even a Dean Martin cover (“Sway”). Near is bringing the core band from that album plus backup singer Andre dos Santos Morgan. (7:30 p.m. Sun., Cedar Cultural Center, $22-$25.) Tom Surowicz

BLUES

Blues and boogie master James “Cornbread” Harris turns 86 this week, and there’s an afternoon bar party in his honor. Harris will tickle the ivories, sing the blues and mix in a little jazz. Well-wishers on stage include Steve Kimmel, Margo Bivic and Batume (jazz); the Bourbones (blues) and the band Vernon Dixon (country/Americana). Will be there a cornbread birthday cake? (3-8 p.m. Sun., Wilebski’s, $10.) Surowicz
