VIDEO: Gloucester Sidewalk Bazaar 2015

Lisa Smith from Cape Ann TV writes, “Zack is blowing us away over here. If you get a chance, please watch it (it’s only 4 minutes). This is only Zack’s 3rd editing assignment on a short video. It is his first time going out and shooting an event, I helped him with the interviews and he shot all the b-roll himself! He did all the editing. Zack is going into his senior year at MERHS and I think he is destined for big things. We have had some very talented interns in here, but I have never seen anyone like him. Oh yeah, he is a really nice young man too.”

Help Cape Ann TV Improve Viewership and Take This Online Survey

Hi Joey,

I’m wondering if you wouldn’t mind posting a link to an online survey we’re conducting. In an effort to improve our services we’re trying to get a better sense of our viewership. We’re created a quick, 10-question survey that will help us gain insight into if/what/how people are watching CATV and what we’re doing well/need to improve. This valuable feedback will help us better-serve Cape Ann.

Here is the link.

Thank you very much.

Lynne Taylor on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes Tonight @ 6pm

Host Allen Estes welcomes Newburyport’s Lynne Taylor as his guest on Cape Ann TV’s Local Music Seen tonight at 6pm.  If you miss it tonight, you can catch her Wednesday at 6:30pm or Friday at 1pm.  See full schedule here.

The daughter of a folk musician and a poet, Lynne grew up in Kent, Ohio during the seventies, and absorbed the social consciousness of that time. She has always felt that music was her calling. She began writing her own songs at the age of fourteen, and has been performing professionally ever since. Lynne’s music is characterized by poignant, honest songwriting combined with a powerful vocal style and unique piano accompaniment. A staple on the music scene in her adopted hometown of Newburyport, MA, she has been performing professionally across the northeastern US since 1985.
In addition to being a popular solo artist, Lynne can also be found having a blast playing bass in her all original punk band, Halo and the Harlots and in roots/alt/country band Liz Frame and the Kickers! One thing is certain; Lynne Taylor has a sound and spirit that is instantly recognizable and all her own!

Lynne released a self-produced solo CD entitled Grace in 1996 and her band, Rantic, released their self-titled CD in 2001. Liz Frame and the Kickers released their first full-length studio recording in Oct. 2011, Halo and the Harlots released their self-titled debut in 2014, and Lynne released When Lightning Strikes in Oct. 2013.
