The Old Steeple continues what has quickly become a stellar tradition of booking talented singer/songwriters to play its beautiful refurbished Methodist church hall. Portland's John Craigie is one such talented performer. Like earlier heavies like John Prine or Guy Clark, Craigie deftly offsets his deeply evocative and touching lyrics with a simple delivery and quippy one-liners between songs. Simplicity and sweetness are the métier for opening duo Hollis Peach. The baritone/alto interplay in the gorgeous vocal harmonies produced by Dan Sherrill and Jacqui Aubert are capable of both breaking the heart and swelling the soul to the surface of the skin. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. ($25, $20 advance).
