A number of outdoor concerts at Fells Point and the Inner Harbor are scheduled this weekend, and the best part is they're free. Maria Rose and her Blue Horizon Band perform a free country music concert at the Harborplace Amphitheater at 5:30 tonight in the Coors Cutter concert series. The Army Blues Jazz Ensemble is the featured act at 4 p.m. Sunday -- same place -- in the All American Concert Series. Formed in 1972, the 18-piece ensemble continues the tradition of the World War II-era Army Dance Band that entertained soldiers in the battle zone. More free music is just a water-taxi ride away, at Broadway Square in Fells Point. Hear original and classic music folk by Heartwind; French ballads, Cajun and blues by Linda Baer, and sea shanties Cornucopia; from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday. The series is sponsored by the Fells Point Business Association and the Baltimore Folk Music Society.

The sales area is open from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow. Admission is $3.
