The Annisquam Village Church 2017 Concert Series launches with “Music from the Misty Isles”
The Annisquam Village Church 2017 Concert Series launches with “Music from the Misty Isles” on May 21 at 3 in the afternoon. The Anglo-Irish ensemble, O’Carolan Etcetera, plays their irresistible toe-tapping fiddle, flute, guitar, and hurdy-gurdy tunes in the unequalled acoustics of the historic 1830’s Village Church (Cape Ann’s Third Parish) at the head of Lobster Cove.
Celtic balladeer Michael O’Leary and his bodhran joins in, setting off the jigs and reels with laments, lullabies, and love songs. A tea and scones reception rounds out the event.
Tickets at the door are $20. (Students / Seniors $15.) and may be purchased in advance from Diamond Cove Music or The Bookstore in Gloucester or at Toad Hall Bookstore in Rockport.
The Annisquam Village Church is at 820 Washington Street (corner of Washington and Leonard Streets) in Gloucester 01930. Handicap accessible.
