WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Here are five of the biggest events coming up in Westchester.

1. Aoife O’Donovan at Katonah's Caramoor, Saturday, April 12 at 8 p.m.

Aoife O’Donovan is widely known as the lead singer of alt-bluegrass/string band Crooked Still, as a member of the folk noir trio Sometymes Why, and as the vocalist on the GRAMMY winning album The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan.

Visit the Greenburgh Nature Center barnyard to meet their furry and feathered friends. Families will be able to take a tour with a naturalist to discover signs of spring from the forest to the pond to the Great Lawn, make seasonal crafts, and search for eggs in an egg hunt. Egg hunts and other fun activities will run continuously throughout the day. 99 Dromore Road. 

3. Les Ballets Trockadero at Harrison's SUNY Purchase, Saturday, April 12 at 8 p.m.

This all-male corps de ballet defies convention and cliché of classical ballet and proves that men can dance en pointe without hurting themselves too badly.

4. Grow Your Own Bitters at Mount Pleasant's Stone Barns Center, Saturday, April 12 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Ages 21 and up. $22.50 - $25. 630 Bedford Road.

5. One Night Only: The National Comedy Theatre at the White Plains Performing Art Center, Saturday, April 12, 8 p.m.

I’m sure we’ve left some big events out. Tell us where you’ll be heading and why.

I am glad that at least the daily voice labels it correctly, an "Easter" egg hunt.

Sheep to Shawl at Phillipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow on both Sturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. There'll be sheep shearing, herding, spinning and weaving, and storytelling by Jonathan Kruk. I go every year andalways have so much fun. My grandchildren love the new lambs.
