Steve Pfarrer’s Best Bets
A SCENIC SHOW
Want to take a virtual tour of the New England National Scenic Trail, which runs from Long Island Sound in Connecticut through the Valley and up close to New Hampshire’s Mount Monadnock? Photographer Barbara Bosworth, the trail’s first artist-in-residence, has spent the last several months documenting a variety of beautiful viewpoints along the way. You can see them at Amherst College’s Mead Museum of Art through Dec. 8.
ANOTHER GOOD BET
And another sign that summer’s nearly at an end: Signature Sounds has resumed its live shows at the Parlor Room, at the label’s Masonic Street building in Northampton. On Thursday at 7 and 9 p.m., you can catch Eillen Jewell and her dark mix of rock n’ roll, gospel, rockabilly, and folk and country. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at www.parlorroommusic.com.
