Look who’s coming to Gloucester & Cape Ann

Anybody who follows us on GMG knows the depth of talent living on Cape Ann (plus, I tried to capture it in an article for The Noise called Vintage Cape Ann — you can see it below the Brad Byrd interview here).  Now, it seems that major talent is arriving from off island more and more — especially when you look at the live music schedule for this weekend and next week.  Here are a few highlights:

TONIGHT: Swingle Singers at Shalin Liu — they’re always bringing in great musicians from out of town.

TOMORROW: Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours at Cape Ann Brewery.  Well, we could almost say that Henri is from Gloucester — he’s been here since Katrina.

SATURDAY: Isaac Hayden at The Grove Cafe in Manchester.  Isaac comes all way from Nashville.  This new boutique/coffee house is beginning to pack the place with people who appreciate good music.

NEXT WEEK:
Thursday @ The Gloucester House – Berklee in Gloucester – World-renowned Berklee Professors performing with Top Students  to raise money to send Gloucester students Berklee.  The first of this year’s series kicks off with The Jim Odgren Quintet.

Sunday @ the UU Church – Free BSO Chamber Music Concert – The Boston Symphony Orchestra has chosen Gloucester to launch its 2012-13 Community Chamber Concerts series.  What a coup for Gloucester!

Keep an eye on next week’s live music schedule.  More shows tend to get added at the last minute.
