Bohemian Quartet at Cumberland

Saturday  Watching the Bohemian Quartet perform live is like listening to history being preserved. In many ways, this gifted and exhilarating act is simply keeping a rare musical flame alive by taking on the challenging oeuvre of the Romany, or “gypsy” musical tradition. Those of you who’ve already seen their show know how mesmerizing and captivating it can be. Those who’ve missed it thus far are in for a treat. 8pm, $15. Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St, Cumberland.

Make King Cakes in Providence

It's Epiphany season, and you can make your own Galette des Rois (the cake of the Kings) the cake celebrating Epiphany. Tradition holds that the cake is "to draw the kings" to the Epiphany. A figurine, la fève, which can represent anything from a car to a cartoon character, is hidden in the cake and the person who gets the trinket is declared the King or Queen of the day. 6-7pm cake making, 7-8pm chamber music, at the Alliance Francaise de Providence, 928 Smith St, Providence. For more information, call 272-6243.
