The GMG post looks awesome, thanks for tagging Granite Visions in it. Granite Visions is a video production project between my friend Michael Kelly and myself. We have a few videos on our youtube channel: www.youtube.com/granitevisions. We’re working on a website.
One of our latest projects is a really great looking interview and 2 music videos featuring Cape Ann singer/songwriter Marina Evans. Any way we could get these on GMG?
Hi Henry, I posted Unbound and provided the link so readers can check out your YouTube channel here. Best wishes with your new website!
Check out Ellis’ performance on A Prairie Home Companion last Summer.
Now, you all know Marina Evans, right? Just in case you don’t, check out this video shot at Shalin Liu. These two will make for an excellent show. Don’t miss it. Get your tix now.
Wednesdays Only: Tenderloin Tips over Salad, $10.95!
Wednesday, March 19th
It’s been nearly two years since Marina and I performed
on the same stage – and man, has she been a busy girl!
Touring and recording across the U.S. and Europe, she
has now been honored as New England Music Awards’
“Female Performer of the Year” for 2014. Rightfully so.
Her music is compelling, unique and smart. ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…

The New England Music Awards announced their nominees yesterday and Cape Ann’s own Marina Evans is among them. Congratulations Marina. You make us all proud!
Now it’s up to YOU to help her out. Vote here! You only have until Jan 31.
This year’s nominees include other excellent choices in other categories too, some of whom, like Kingsley Flood, you’ve seen right here in Gloucester.
Allen Estes, Marina Evans and David Brown…I got a feeling that the place will be packed!

Well, it’s not easy. But we’re here to help. Start with the complete live music lineup here (updated as we learn of new shows and schedule changes). Below are some highlights:
Remember Joan Osborne? “What if God were one of us?” Seems appropriate since Peter Higgs won the Nobel Prize in physics this week for predicting the God Particle that was discovered at CERN earlier this year. As of this post there are a few seats left — but not many, so if you want to go, CLICK HERE and get your seats now.
Depending on the weather, this might be your last chance to catch a music sail on the Thomas E. Lannon this year. Michael O’Leary performs with his band.
We would be remiss if we didn’t remind you that the man who holds the well-deserved title of Canada’s finest singer-songwriter, James Keelaghan is at Old Sloop with Tom Smith opening.
Once again, we recommend that you CLICK HERE to get your tickets today if you want to be assured of a seat.
Marina Evans UNBOUND CD Release concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema looks like it will be an excellent evening.
There are over 20 live shows this weekend, so plenty to choose from if none of these strike your fancy. See the full lineup here.
I sympathize. Life is tough when you can’t get your panda fix from the National Zoo because the Panda Cams are dark. Or perhaps you’re wondering what to do after seeing that scary message “NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable” at www.noaa.gov.
But don’t be depressed. When the Allen Estes Band takes the stage on Saturday, the lights will be on at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly (which opened in 1912 — same year as Fenway Park — under the slogan “Lit Completely by Electricity” and it still is!)
Cape Ann TV is still on. And tonight they premiere a new Local Music Seen show featuring Marina Evans as Allen Estes’ guest on Channel 12 at 6:30pm.
Marina sings new songs off her brand-new CD, Unbound, which she’ll release next Sunday, Oct 13 at concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema. This will be an excellent night of music, so mark your calendars.
Don’t worry, Marina will be there even if the Government is still shut down.
And, of course, there’s live music all week here in Gloucester. See the live music lineup here.
Just in case any of you in Washington who voted to shut down the government are reading this post about all that’s going on here despite your antics, we’ve got five words for you: THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Friends! we have a date for the release of my new album: OCTOBER 13! In a cool venue ass with a FANTASTIC BAND and couches and vino and beer! I cannot WAIT to share this music with you. Debut single coming sooooooon!
Mark yer calendars:
The Cape Ann Community Cinema
Sunday, October 13
Doors at 7:30, show at 8 — with Bernardo Baglioni.
Check it out…
Tomorrow (9/17/13) we will be taping two show of Local Music Seen with Allen Estes.
If you’d like to be in the audience, come to the Cape Ann TV Studio in Blackburn Park (directions here) at 2pm. Ring the doorbell and say, I’m here for Local Music Seen. Don’t worry about what you look like, you won’t be on camera. Your presence allows the performers to connect with a live audience, which gives the show an added dimension. And your clapping, cheering, whistling, etc. will be captured on the soundtrack.
We will be taping a show with Toni Ann Enes followed by a show with Marina Evans. Hope to see you in the live studio audience.
Gloucester’s Bob Quinn, who has been going to Good Harbor for the past 80 years, tours the dunes of Good Harbor Beach and comments on the poundin’ it took this winter.
Here is a clip from the half –hour show that airs all week on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.
Show airs: Monday (tonight) at 6:30 p.m.; Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.; Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.; Thursday at 8:30 p.m.; Friday at 12:30 p.m. and Saturday at 5:00 p.m. See Channel Listings for more Cape Ann TV Shows.
Even though there’s still snow on the ground, it’s not too early to be thinking about swimming at Good Harbor. So, to get you in the mood, here’s a very up-beat song Allen Estes wrote last Summer and performed on Local Music Seen.
Speaking of Allen, he’s appearing at Giuseppe’s this Thursday for the second week of the Singer Songwriter Shuffle along with his son Dylan and other local favorites Inge Berge, Steve Caraway, Marina Evans, Jon Waterman and Joe Wilkins.
But don’t wait until Thursday. Lots of live music on Cape Ann all week long. See here!
OK, you’re setting your clocks ahead before you go to bed tonight, so that means everything that happens tomorrow will seem earlier. That’s because it will be earlier even though our clocks will tell us differently. Honestly, I don’t much like this business of changing time twice a year. And setting clocks ahead seems to be much more difficult than setting them back. It’s not because we supposedly lose an hour of sleep. It’s because it feels funny. In fact, early studies on circadian rhythms showed that when people could control their own light and were not exposed to any time cues, they gravitated toward almost a 25 hour day (sometimes referred to as a “lunar day”) — essentially synchronizing their inner “body clocks” with the tides. (It takes the Earth 24 hours 50 minutes to rotate to the same position relative to the moon.)
Anyhow the point is that if you’re gonna feel weird, you might as well take advantage of the fact that good music starts at 11 AM tomorrow (it’ll feel like 10). Then there’s music starting at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30 and 8, when you can catch Marina Evans at Rhumb Line (good for those of you who were bummed because The Grove cancelled her last night). Check the full live music schedule here.
Those of you who like Christmas music are in luck tonight. Fly Amero is signing Christmas songs with his brother J.B. and Allen Estes at the Rhumbline tonight starting at 8pm.
Then catch the Local Music Seen with Allen Estes 2011 Christmas Special at 11pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12 (originally aired last year) featuring Dan King, Daisy Nell & Capt. Stan, Ann Marie, Bradley Royds, Inge Berge, Chelsea Berry, Dave Sag, Courtney Reid and Allen’s son Dylan Estes. Here’s a video of many of the performers singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town. (see more air times here)
Of course, there’s lots of other excellent music in town (not necessarily Christmas — see full schedule here), including Dennis Monagle with Marina Evans, Joe Cardoza and Dave Brown at Minglewood Tavern starting at 9pm.
Last night, Chelsea Berry played the The Bitter End, New York City’s oldest and most iconic club. Boy that place brings back memories — I wish I had been there!
Look at her in this picture. Even without her excellent band she still rocks!
I can hear it now.
And while Chelsea was in NYC, Marina Evans is out west. Check out this excerpt from her latest tour report.
The cross country tour is just about drawing to a close as we make our final journey across the southwestern desert. Since the last update from Nashville, we’ve hit Asheville, NC; Atlanta, GA; New Orleans, LA; Dallas, TX; and Socorro, NM. Whew!
So far, the longest stretch has been from west Texas to New Mexico. But not to fear: we brought a ukulele, and were therefore musically productive on the road. Here’s a little diddy from the west Texas brushlands.
Back on the home front, you can get a double dose of John Rockwell tonight. He’s at Alchemy at 7pm and then he’s Fly Amero‘s guest at Rhumb Line at 9pm.
An excellent weekend of live music is shaping up. See the schedule here. But check back tomorrow because I’m sure we’ll have new stuff to post. I really thought Vickie’s post 3 weeks ago would inspire people keep their info up to date, but they don’t, so you’ll just have to wait.
Check the songs out here. Read what Marina has to say, below:
Hello from Nashville!
The Tuscan Sessions are finally done – and I am SO excited to share them with you! Written and recorded this past spring in Florence, Italy, this record brings a distinctly European feel to folk Americana. Special thanks to producer and one-man-band Bernardo Baglioni, without whom this record would never have been possible. Click here to have a listen, tap yer foot, and sing along.
Meanwhile, the tour rolls on! Tonight, Berna and I will be featured at a songwriters in the round session in Nashville – quite an honor! So much talent in this city. And the honky tonks are WILD. Also – I’ve added two more dates to our itinerary: Dallas (11/11) and Socorro, NM (11/13). More soon!
