Celtic Music on the Thomas E. Lannon – Great Music, Sail, People and Sunset

Captain Tom Ellis took the Thomas E. Lannon out on a glorious sail beyond the breakwater, Celtic singer Michael O’Leary and Friends played music to the delight of everyone on board, many happy faces enjoying the sunset and a welcoming flock of sea gulls as they escorted the Schooner Lannon back home.

Award-winning contemporary Celtic band, RUNA, comes to Old Sloop next Fri 6/7

Check out the video featuring RUNA’s dynamic fusion of traditional & modern Celtic sounds — with dancing!  Remember, it’s the high-season.  Shows like this will sell-out, so you’d better get your tickets early — get them here.

What? Another reason to cross the bridge? Yup — local music, food & fun in Boston this Sunday

Yesterday, we told you about local artists at Topsfield Fair and suggested that you go see them (see post here).

This weekend you’ve got another opportunity to see one of our local favorites, Satch Kerans, at the Boston Local Food Festival on Sunday.  Satch is on The River Plug and Play Stage at 1:30pm (see complete festival entertainment schedule here).  If you’ve never seen Satch, check out this video from the Songwriters in the Round series.

Before and after Satch’s set, you can catch the start and finish of the big, Boston version of Gloucester’s Seafood Throwdown (yup, these are the same people who produce the one at the Farmers Market) — and your boy, Peter Van Ness, will emcee once again.

Now for some evening excitement featuring 30 artists this weekend and your last chance to experience music aboard the Lannon in 2012 (see this post if you’re not sure what we’re  talking about).  See the complete list of live music in Gloucester and Cape Ann here.
