Tolsdorf Trike Challenge

Presented as part of the pro Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic in West Chester, this three-wheeling race is a perennial fave, with tag teams of five riders competing on oversize tricycles with no brakes. (Veterans of the event say the key to victory isn't speed, but the handoff to the next rider — "A good handoff is one that doesn't involve swinging the trike into the shins of your teammate," says race namesake Chris Tolsdorf.)  Race day also features two-wheel racing, a kids' race, a block party on Market Street, and more. — Michael Harrington

3:30 p.m. Saturday; Gay and Market Streets from Matlack to Darlington Streets, West Chester; Free to observers; greaterwestchester.com.

Now that Dave and Serge Bielanko have reunited and, crucially, Mike "Slo-Mo" Brenner is in the fold on lap steel, Marah is back to doing what it does best (and better than most): staging raucous, life-affirming rock-and-roll celebrations. It's been almost 20 years since Marah debuted with the Philly classic Let's Cut the Crap and Hook Up Later on Tonight, and they're no longer "Kids in Philly" — the brothers have settled in central Pennsylvania. They're claiming that Friday's show in Ardmore will be their last Philly-area appearance of 2017, so let's catch them while we can.  — Steve Klinge

8:30 Friday; Ardmore Music Hall, 23 E. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore; $25; 610-649-8389, ardmoremusichall.com.

The Peach Music Festival 2017

Since Scranton's annual Peach Music Festival was co-created by Live Nation and the Allman Brothers Band, it is only fitting that its 2017 iteration of Southern rock and soulful sounds is dedicated to the Bros.' most recent losses: Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks. Along with a tribute featuring several Bros. (e.g. Jaimoe, Oteil Burbridge, Chuck Leavell), the event's headliners, such as Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes and My Morning Jacket, will be part of the cover song extravaganza. "I was confused as to why a festival in Pennsylvania had peach in its name because, uh, Georgia?," says My Morning Jacket's Tom Blankenship. "Then, when I found out about the connection to the Allmans, I still thought, 'Uh, Georgia?' " Confusion settled, Blankenship's My Morning Jacket artful jam mastery owes much to the Allmans, a staple of the youthful Blankenship household. "My dad played a lot of Allmans around the house, especially Eat a Peach and that demo recording released by Bold Records: Duane and Gregg Allman. When I was in the fifth grade, a nice family moved in across the street and they had two daughters around my age: Melissa and Jessica. It would take me a few years to realize they were named after Allman Bros.' songs I had loved." — A.D. Amorosi

The Peach Music Festival, with My Morning Jacket, Gov't Mule and Friends, Widespread Panic, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Lettuce featuring Chaka Khan, Mike Gordon, and more; Friday through Sunday; Pavilion at Montage Mountain, 1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton; $60 to $1,250; thepeachmusicfestival.com.

Chris Stapleton / Margo Price

What a feast of hard-hitting, no-frills country music. Once an under-the-radar Nashville ace as a hit songwriter and singer's singer, Chris Stapleton rose to star status and gave authentic country a tremendous boost with the well-deserved success of his solo debut, Traveller, which also won the 2016 Grammy for best country album. This year's From a Room, Volume 1 is even better. And with her own debut, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, young spitfire Margo Price has established herself as an heir to the coal miner's daughter, Loretta Lynn. The first act on the bill, Brent Cobb, offers even more evidence that country is in good hands. — Nick Cristiano

7 p.m. Saturday; BB&T Pavilion, 1 Harbour Blvd., Camden; $30.75 to $70.75; 856-365-1300.
