BMA Nominee Gracie Curran on Aurelia Nelson’s Curtain UP tomorrow (SUN) at 9AM

Gracie Curran at Larcom Theatre April 2014

Here’s some irony: Earlier this month, the Boston Globe announced this year’s Boston Music Wards nominees (see here) which include Gracie Curran for Blues Artist of the Year.  A few days later the Boston Herald cited Gracie Curran’s move from the Boston area to Memphis as an example of local blues artists’ response to the a loss of venues that offer them a place to preform (see here).

Vickie and I are bringing Gracie back to Beverly’s Larcom Theatre next Saturday NOV 1, for one night only with young, award-winning piano player Victor Wainwright, who got the first standing ovation at this year’s Gloucester Blues Fest.  GET TIX HERE.

Tomorrow, you can hear Gracie talk about the her career, the Blues, Memphis, Boston and much more on Aurelia Nelson’s Curtain Up radio show on North Shore 104.9FM at 9am.  Yeah, this will be worth getting up for.

DAVE SAG’S BLUES PARTY WITH SPECIAL GUEST: Brian David Templeton, William Loosigian & Dave Mattacks @ The Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:30

dave sag rl mo

 

It’s He-Man Week™ as I drag in the limb-crunching behemoth of the blues: Mr. Brian Templeton. Last time he was here, severe shock and awe erupted on the dance floor and mere mortals (not you) quivered with trepidation at what might happen to their booty whilst under his spell. He’s a really big guy, physically and tonally. Makes me look like Barney Fife. He’s really a great frontman, singer and harpist,and a joy to work with. He’s bringing along Mr. Billy Loosigian, rocket-propelled guitarist and veteran of many an ear-exploding night on this same stage.He’ll be the one in the red cape. Range-finding co-ordinates supplied by the atomic clock, Mr. Dave Mattacks. I’ll be on base. hours: 8:30 till11:30, and, no, we’re not changing them anymore for the winter.

Dennis Brennan this Thursday night @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party…The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 10.16.2014

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

OK, kids, time to put your vibrating font of perpetual solipsism* away and pay attention to this: Dennis Brennan is coming to town.Yes, yes, when it comes to naked emotions it helps to have D around to befriend our eardrums and try to make a whole lotta sense with our paltry lives. Possibly the area’s most important raw mineral. And he’s breaking it up a little bit by using some other cats than we’re used to hearing.
Firstly, there’s Steve Sadler ,gourmand guitarist and everybody’s favorite studio cat. Knows Dennis’ every move from other gigs. And Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, who’s a big fave around here, on the eggbeaters. And me, too. I’m Dave Sag, and I approve this message.

From 1 to 3, we’ll be playing all your favorite tin pan alley toons for the prune juice and joint replacement crowd. Join us for some great cane-tapping fun!

Atwater & Donnelly with Kevin Doyle at One World Coffeehouse

Award-winning, internationally acclaimed performers, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly present captivating programs of traditional American and Celtic folk songs and percussive dance.  Elwood and Aubrey blend gorgeous harmonies and play an astonishing array of instruments including guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, limberjacks, and other surprises including a thrilling interpretation of freestyle Appalachian clog dancing.  Married since 1989, Aubrey and Elwood have performed widely in the United States and abroad and their twelve recordings receive international airplay.  Joining Aubrey and Elwood is Kevin Doyle, a delightful, compelling performer of old style traditional Irish step dance and American tap dance as well as percussion and vocals. A lifelong dancer, Kevin was a U.S. Champion Irish step dancer in his early competitive years, and has been entertaining audiences ever since with his traditional style of “close to the ground” rhythms and intricate foot work.  Their performance is appealing to all ages, and with humor, audience participation, and a relaxed stage presence, Aubrey, Elwood, and Kevin explain song origins to give more relevance to the material.  From haunting melodies to lively jigs you will be delighted by the performance.

For reservations, please call 978-768-3690. This event is sure to be a sell out. Reserve by phone, pay at the door. For more information, please see www.oneworldcoffeehouse.org.

Gordon Bok with Daisy Nell and Capt Stan – Saturday 10/11/14 at Old Sloop Coffeehouse

Gordon Bok learned many tunes, sea songs, stories, legends and ballads growing up in Camden, Maine. Where he couldn’t find songs that matched his experiences or needs, he wrote his own, and he has kept up a lively flow of poems, songs, stories, choral and instrumental works. He has performed extensively in the United States, and in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand and has appeared on the radio show “A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor. Daisy Nell & Capt. Stan will open.

Perhaps you’ve seen him performing with Allen Estes. Or, maybe
you caught the Orville Giddings Band either live or on YouTube.
Or… you could’ve been at home, flipping the remote and landing
on “Dog Day Afternoon” or “And Justice For All”. In any case, I’m
sure you’ve by now become an avid fan of Al Pacino, er… uh…
Orville Giddings! I tease him because of this online image (is it
just me?). Bottom line… great music, joyous spirit. Come share!
