Maye will pay tribute to the lyrics of Johnny Mercer, while Morton will celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scot Robert Burns.
Maye's show, entitled Mercer the Maye Way, will feature Tedd Firth leading a three-piece band that includes Jim Eklof on percussion and Tom Hubbard on bass.
In Morton's Caledoni a: Songs for the Homecoming, the singing actor, according to press notes, "dwells on the music of his native Scotland, while mixing in traditional Irish songwriters and modern Celtic fare." Morton will be backed by Bryan Reeder on piano and Maud Reardon on violin and vocals.
Maye will perform June 12-21 at 7 PM; Morton will sing June 11-27 at 9:45 PM.
