EASTON -- When clarinetist Lawrie Bloom's parents bought a house in St. Michaels, he came to visit and said, "We ought to start a little chamber music festival here." And they did.More than a decade later, the Blooms' "little festival" has evolved into a Talbot County tradition. The Eastern Shore Chamber Music Festival has gained a loyal following in its 11 years and grown into a two-week event, but it hasn't outgrown its roots. It's still an opportunity for players and listeners alike to experience chamber music in an intimate setting.

Then, October brings Mr. Halloween Makeup himself, Alice Cooper, to Merriweather and raspy Rod Stewart to the Baltimore Arena.
