Dennis: In 1982, Bruce Springsteen released “Nebraska,” a sparse, haunting solo album of 10 songs — stories of everyday people facing challenges in life — showing that folk music is alive and timeless, not just a collection of dusty, old-timey songs. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic, Jonathan Hall will perform “Nebraska” in its entirety, with guitar, harmonica, and vocals. Friday, 8 p.m. Cape Cod Chat House, 593 Route 6A. Free. 508-694-7187,
