Hot music weekend in the dead of Winter

Well, anybody who thinks Cape Ann’s music scene is only hot during tourist season should look at this weekend’s lineup (see full weekend music schedule here).

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that you just can’t see every good show this weekend.  You’re gonna have to choose.  Maybe I can help.  It just so happens that I’ve recently interviewed two people who are performing this weekend at Shalin Liu.

Here’s my interview with Brian Gore, whose International Guitar Night performs tonight at 8PM.

And here’s my interview with Kendrick Oliver, director of the New Life Jazz Orchestra, who’s performing tomorrow at 8PM.

And don’t forget Mark Berger & Ride with dramatic photographs from out west as the backdrop for this Old Sloop concert tomorrow.

And it’s Crazy Moon’s final weekend at Rocky Neck Art Colony.

Plus some of Cape Ann’s favorites all over town, including Linda Amero, Charlee Bianchini & Dave Brown, Runaround, Dan King, Michael O’Leary, Mari Martin, Allen Estes & Orville Giddings — and there’s the Community Sing-a-long in Celebration of Pete Seeger at the Lanesville Community Center tonight.  WOW!  Is your head spinning?  Click here for some help choosing.

Listen to Interview with Brian Gore of International Guitar Night

Earlier this afternoon I interviewed Brian Gore, who is bringing his International Guitar Night to Shalin Liu next Friday, Feb 7.

Four extraordinary guitarists: Brian Gore from San Francisco, Pino Forastiere from Italy, Quique Sinesi from Argentina and Mike Dawes from England will each perform solo and then all together creating a sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before on guitar.

In this interview Brian talks about his music, various guitar tunings and genres — and he gives us a hint of what we can expect next Friday.
