Baltimore Wine Fest

With more than 140 wines from every corner of the globe available for tasting, it would be hard to imagine a better place to be, whether you're into sipping wine or imbibing a little more heavily (not too heavily, of course — moderation, people, moderation). The festival also offers food, plus cooking demos, seminars, arts and crafts vendors, and a family zone for the young 'uns. Ain't the warm weather grand! Noon-7 p.m. Saturday at Canton Waterfront Park, 3001 Boston St. $12-$90. baltimorewinefest.com

Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell

Stapleton won new artist of the year, male vocalist of the year and album of the year at the 2015 Country Music Association Awards (seriously, "Traveller" was some rookie effort). Isbell, whose work with Drive-By Truckers only hinted at the great things to come, walks around with a Bob Dylan lyric tattooed on his arm. Should be a fun night. 6 p.m. Saturday at Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway. $45-$149. merriweathermusic.com

Yo-Yo Ma
