Special appearances by Chelsea Berry at the MAC (2 – 3 PM), Alexandra Valenti @ Shalin Liu (3:30 – 4:30 PM) and Allen Estes at Cape Ann Savings Bank (5-6 PM). See full schedule below!
Join young, up-and-coming songwriters Alexandra Valenti and Fia James as they share the stage for a special evening at Giuseppe’s Ristorante in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
This will be a special evening of originals and covers featuring 2 of the area’s best, young talents.
Reservations are suggested.
Over the past few years, we’ve profiled a number of rising stars from Cape Ann. Here’s our latest pick for whom to watch: Alexandra Valenti. Her insightful songs and endearing spirit captivate audiences and keep you listening, wanting more.
You can see her live at the Town Hall Stage at 3pm during Manchester’s Festival by the Sea this Saturday. And you can be introduced to her on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes tomorrow (WED) at 6:30pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12. She sings three wonderfully original songs and speaks candidly — and with wisdom beyond her years — about the songwriting process and music business. Here’s a taste of what you can expect:
“I’m on a tightrope, balancing myself so I don’t choke on fear.” You can tell she’s going places if she’s already writing lyrics like that. You might as well catch this rising star while you can close to home. It won’t be long before she’s playing big venues far away for a steep ticket price.
Next Monday 7/29, we’re filming two Local Music Seen with Allen Estes shows for Cape Ann TV at their studio at 38 Blackburn Center (see map). Filming will begin around 2:30pm. Allen’s guests will be Joe Thomas & Memory Lane of Giuseppe’s, who hosted the very popular Noise Magazine Singer Songwriter Shuffle. There will be a break after filming Joe & Memory and then we’ll begin filming a show with very talented, young singer/songwriter Alexandra Valenti as Allen’s Guest. Here’s Alexandra at the Singer Songwriter Shuffle.
People are welcome to attend as guests. If you’d like to attend, please be there by 2:30pm. And please be patient as we have to test sound and lights and often we have to move stuff around and mess with various gadgets to get things just right.
