Fresh off another iconic National Anthem performance at
majestic Fenway Park, the legendary Jon Butcher graces our
stage at the Rhumb Line this week. Among the hardest working
people I’ve ever known, my friend Mr. Butcher never allows
himself to stand still. He continues to grow as an artist, and
spends each waking moment toward that end. Accordingly,
he’ll be featuring brand new material from his upcoming CD.
Every bit as gutsy, rootsy and soulful as we’ve always known
his music to be. Come meet Jon Butcher, up close and
personal. It all starts at 7! ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
The Rhumb Line Kitchen……now features Janet Brown with some new and healthy ideas!
Plus a fine, affordable wine menu!

L-R Linda Brayton, Jennifer Holmgren, Lisa Sawall (Sleeper’s grand niece) before a special Beauport Sleeper McCann tour focusing on the  correspondence and collaboration of Sleeper and architect Halfdan Hanson which was led by Lorna.

 

Photographs in this post are from yesterday’s special Beauport Sleeper McCann program, stemming from the Cape Ann Museum Design/Build exhibition. Lorna Condon, senior curator of Historic New England’s Library and Archives, led this tremendous tour.

Neither Sleeper not Hanson family members knew they’d be there together at this tour. Yet members of both  families wore the same shoes!

We’re having a guitar extravaganza this Thursday. I’m calling’ in the big guns for a battle plan.

On the other side, there’s Mr. Jim Scoppa, guitarist non pareil,  with his gas-fired style and smoking amplifier. Mr. Andrew “Pops” Jones will be freaking out on the drums. I’ll be in the middle with a bunch of new toons to torture you with. Ask your doctor if The Rhumb Line is right for you!
