Carrboro
Tannahill Weavers
The ArtscenterFiddle and bagpipes send upbeat reels and jigs into a frenzy. Guitar and flute soothe with lilting ballads and lullabies. Playing in some form or another since 1968, the Tannahill Weavers has become part of the traditional music it plays, even helping the bouzouki—originally a large Greek mandolin—sound Scottish. With an easier journey than the Scottish settlers of North Carolina, the five-piece stops by Carrboro in the midst of their U.S. tour to begin The ArtsCenter's third annual Celtic Concert Series. Pay $19 at 7 p.m. —Andrew Ritchey

Durham
Natural Forms
Through This Lens Gallery—Nudes are on view, from two veteran Durham fine art photographers, starting today with a reception at 2 p.m. Natural Forms showcases the work of Wojtek Wojdynski and Caroline Vaughan. The former took up photography in his native Poland, then immigrated to the U.S. to work as an engineer in 1981 before returning to full-time photography in 2000. Vaughn's training includes studies with John Menapace and Minor White, and she's published a monograph, Borrowed Time, with Duke University Press. After today's opening, the show remains on view through April 11. Visit www.throughthislens.com. —David Fellerath


Raleigh
Macbeth
Theatre in the Park—The Scottish play is enshrined at the base of the Jaume Plensa light beam in front of the Durham Performing Arts Center, and now gets a workout in Raleigh. This production, directed by Ira David Wood III, sets the play in a post-apocalyptic world and includes multimedia and masks. In the closest Raleigh can come to a pairing of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Wood himself and Lynda Clark team up to play Shakespeare's doomed power couple. The run opens Friday, Feb. 6, and continues with a 3 p.m. matinee today before concluding next weekend. For more information, visit www.theatreinthepark.com. —David Fellerath
