Vermont arts-and-entertainment events bloom as spring arrives in March

March in Vermont means trees start to bud, red-winged blackbirds return to the landscape and the arts-and-entertainment schedule begins to bloom once again.

After a couple of relatively lean months, the slate of music, theater and other performing and visual arts really fills up this month. Bands’ tour schedules get into gear and the people who want to come out and see those bands are finally ready to dig out from their long winter’s hibernation.

Given all of that activity, it’s hard to include every arts event the region has to offer for those 31 days. But here’s a pretty large sampling of what’s about to happen.
