On Saturday, March 5 KCT Concerts opens up its 2011 season with Willy Mason performing at the Katharine Cornell Theater.

KCT Concerts has a history of bringing to the Island incredible musical acts including last year’s headliners Paddy Keenan, Oisin MacDiarmada and Richie Stearns, to name just a few.

Of course, Willy Mason doesn’t have to be brought to the Island. He lives here. And yet the man is global. Later this spring he will be back touring Europe as he did last summer with Norah Jones.

The concert begins at 8 p.m. and will include friends of Mr. Mason. No word yet on who that might be. Don’t be that person who misses out and then has to watch some miniscule YouTube shot of Willy and Keith Richards singing Mockingbird. Just dreaming here, but who knows.

As usual, kids under twelve are free. Everyone else pays $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets are on sale at Aboveground Records, Island Entertainment, Alley’s General Store, Scottish Bakehouse and the Oak Bluffs General Store
