MOSSE band members Andrew Luman and Jerry Smith are Gloucester guys and the band is kinda famous thanks to GoodMorningGloucester (here was the world exclusive post on GMG about MOSSE’s debut.)

Thursday’s concert will be free, fun and kid-friendly. 

Attached to this email is a music clip of their sound and a Mosse CD poster, in case it’s helpful. 

Oh, and special bonus — the band will have their new CD available at Thursday night’s concert, too. 

See you there,

What? You’ve never been aboard the Beauport Princess Cruise Ship? Rectify that on Schooner Festival Sunday!

This is NOT a small whale-watch or fishing boat.  It’s a fully-loaded CRUISE SHIP featuring 2 enclosed decks with dance floors, 3 full-service bars (wine, beer & top-shelf liquor) and an open-air top deck — theatre seating on the first deck, tables on the second deck and couches on the top deck.

The weather will probably be great, but even if it’s not, you can party in luxury and comfort on both of the air-conditioned (or heated if need be) indoor decks with bars and dance floors.

Plus you’ll be partying with 5-time Grammy Nominees Roomful of Blues and cruising historic Gloucester Harbor full of tall ships on Schooner Festival Sunday!  Our last three concert cruises sold out, so please don’t be one of those people who calls us begging for a spot we can’t give you.  Get your tickets RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. Then you can relax and enjoy Schooner Festival weekend!

This is a great agglomeration! Make sure your health care professional knows you’re going!

Special Guest: BRADLEY ROYDS!

Bradley’s the one on the right. Though years have passed, I
believe it’s safe to say Mr. Royds is aging as gracefully as
the other guy did. Biggest difference between the two?
Bradley makes HIS OWN music – and it’s pretty damn good
at that! See you there – 7pm! ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!

Willa Mamet + Paul Miller concert Friday @ 7:30

Hi Joey,

We’d love for people to experience this amazing event.

Thanks for all of your help!

Check out a video here:

Willa Mamet + Paul Miller bring the sound of “Americana” to Gloucester.

Inspired by the music of rising stars like Gillian Welch and Alison Kraus, their latest album, “Let Somebody Love You,” features newly recorded versions of Depression-era classics from the American south.

In her collaborations with Miller, Mamet stakes her claim by hunkering down and proceeding to sing the sultry soul into every song. Miller provides classy pared-down guitar and vocal accompaniment that turns out, somehow, to always sound lush and right.  Miller has been providing guitar and vocal harmonies for a wide collection of acoustic groups since before Willa Mamet was born. He is currently one of six featured vocalists in Vermont’s Bluegrass Gospel Project and spent years before that as an indispensable member of Breakaway and for Coco and the Lonesome Road Band.  The stars really begin to shine, onstage and on disc, when these two harmonize. 

Mamet + Miller’s second recording project (their first, a lovely 8-track EP entitled “East Hill Road,” was produced in 2013) includes favorites like Joni Mitchell’s River, Old Crow Medicine Show’s version of Wagon Wheel, and Richard Thompson’s Dimming of the Day (Bonnie Raitt’s version, not Linda Thompson’s!). The ability to choose classic material, and to arrange it so that people can appreciate it, either “all over again” or for the first time, is an art, and, just like “You Are My Sunshine” and “Don’t Fence Me In” and dozens of other popular American songs familiar to almost everyone a few generations ago, this music deserves to be preserved, and celebrated, and performed. Mamet + Miller have exactly what it takes to get the job done.

Mamet + Miller will perform only one concert in Gloucester, Friday, August 21st, 7:30pm at Wisdom’s Heart, 2 Duncan St., Gloucester.  Seating is limited. See for more information.

You Asked for Schooner Fest Sunday Night Activities … We Listened

Back in 2010 we presented Celebrate Gloucester featuring Roomful of Blues at the City’s newly acquired I4-C2 property on Schooner Festival Sunday because we were told there’s nothing to do on Sunday after the race. Here we are five years later bringing Roomful of Blues back to Gloucester aboard The Beauport Princess Cruise Ship for an evening Blues Cruise @ 7:30 on Schooner Festival Sunday.

The Schooner Festival has always been one of our favorite Gloucester events and we’re honored to add our little piece of cruising fun to one of the world’s major maritime spectacles!
