If you missed this stellar December 20th show at Gloucester’s UU Church, hosted by Allen Estes and featuring Charlie Farren and Danielle Miraglia — or if you were there and want to re-live the extraordinary experience of that magical night, you can watch the entire concert on Cape Ann TV cable channel 12 tonight (WED) at 8pm. Thanks to Jim Capillo for his excellent work on this show. Here’s a teaser he put together for us.
It airs again tomorrow at 9am, Friday at 9:30pm, Saturday at 11am and 9pm, and Sunday at 9pm. Check the schedule here for updates.
Tickets for tonight’s Cape Ann Winter Solstice benefit for Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse Restoration are only $20 in advance at The Liquor Locker 287 Main Street. But you can only get those tickets until 3pm today.
After that, tickets are $25 at the door.
Plus we have a few VIP tickets left on-line here.
We realize this holiday season can be hectic and stressful. That’s why this year’s Solstice concert is designed to take you away and give you an new appreciation for the power of acoustic music in a magical space to cleanse the soul.
When you hear Boston rock star Charlie Farren’s hits like ‘Fool In Love’ and ‘You are the Only One’ solo with guitar in this intimate room, you’ll feel them even more deeply than the electric versions. Add Danielle Miraglia’s soulful blues with slide guitar and mix in Gloucester’s iconic Americana singer/songwriter Allen Estes as host and we guarantee you’ll leave having been taken to a place you’ve never experienced before.
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” outside. Join us tonight and feel the holiday spirit inside.
Here’s a taste of what it will be like:
Just Announced: Boston Rock Star Charlie Farren of FARRENHEIT and THE JOE PERRY PROJECT will headline this year’s Cape Ann Winter Solstice concert hosted by Allen Estes with Rising Boston Blues Star Danielle Miraglia (who blew the crowd away with James Montgomery at this year’s Celebrate Gloucester benefit for The Open Door).
You can get tickets to this very special event at The Cape Ann Farmers Market’s first Indoor Market is tomorrow (SAT) 10am – 1pm at Gloucester’s UU Church. Just go to the Farmers Market and look for the UU Church table.
A special treat this week as we welcome Ms. Danielle Miraglia to our stage. She’s a real up and coming talent in the musical world and I’m so glad to have her.She’s everywhere these days, so catch her before you can’t afford it! Mr. Blob Enik, fanciful thought-provoking glitarist , has brought her to my attention and will be joining us. Also, Mr.Jim Gambino, ace pinky-wiggler, will be on keyboard dooties as well as that landscape-beheaded drummbler, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. Of course, Salmon Dave Sag will be on base, with a full count. I wouldn’t miss it for the world!
NEXT WEEK: Rikkky Russell, Edd Scheer and cutie-pie Mario Perrett.
