Awesome Local Workshop for Teachers Coming Up

Coming up on March 14th: a great workshop/micro-conference for teachers of English Lit and related subjects is taking place at the Eastern Point Lit House in Gloucester. There will be a communal meal and a few sessions on “Teaching Impossible Texts” with some outstanding local teachers. This event is designed for public, private and even homeschool educators to come together, connect and collaborate with other likeminded teachers who are into books and want to teach kids how to be into books as well. Feel free to call me (Sarah) at 978-546-2861 for more info. If you mention GMG there will be a 25% GMG Close Reader Discount refund offered after you register! :)

Dave says,

It’s Snowbank Removal Week as temperatures threaten to climb into the Forties. I loved my forties, when I was at the peak of my insanity, rather than being the recondite cretin that I am now: talking to pigeons and wiping saliva off my chin. But enough about me: what about that finger in your eye music happening on Thursday? And that guy who had a seizure whilst skydiving? What’s the big deal? Happens to me all the time….
So, this Thursday let’s have a ball with a sorta new guy: Mr. Tim Gartland. He’s been here before. He’s really talented and deserves your rabid attention. Tim hails from Cleveland, where he was arrested for arson after setting the Cuyahoga river on fire. Now he’s gonna torch your cerebellum with his swingfoot style of harp and vogelsang. He’s got a really cool voice, sort of a cross between Arthur Prysock and Arthur Prysock. With hints of mint courtesy of Metamucil Pete, my street connection.
Backing him up will be that plisky, spoon-bending master of glitar, Mr. Jon Ross. Trader Joe’s secret weapon. Jon is one of my favorite musicians. Fluent on Guitar, bass and drums. drives a cool ’92 Buick Wagon, too.What’s not to like? Drums beaten by Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer. I’m on bass, trying once again to steal second. C’mon down and have a good time. It’ll be warm! You might even find a parking spot!

And, don’t forget: Next Monday The Old Saltys will be controlling the universe from our secret base hidden at the Rose Baker Senior Center in downtown Gloucester. From 1 to 3, we will be controlling transmission. You ought to see these guys before it’s too late and your prune juice stock tanks on NASDAC. I really mean it: it’s the best show in town. You’ll see….

Dave Sag’s Blues Party This Thursday with J.B. Amero, David Brown and Dave Mattacks 8:30pm 2.12.2015

dave sags 2.12.2015

 

Dave says,

This Thursday! The magnificent reappearance of that Maestro of musical mayhem….Mr. J.B. Amero. Soaked in a strong solution of Merle Haggard and held up by a strong belt of scotch, this cat has the ability to make you spill a tear into your beer without dropping a stitch of laughter, or angst.
More so than most, he really brings this town together,as he has done for many years, despite the fact that his bell-bottoms no longer fit like they used to. He doesn’t need ‘em anymore! We’re also  dragging in Mr. Dave Brown,goo-tarist xtroidinaire and Dave Mattacks, pendulumatic pacemaker to make it all happen.  A very special night! I do hope to see you all there, cuz like Dave Brown says: We’re nothing without you!

Tonight at Katrina’s ~ Inge Berge Filling in for Toni Ann 7-10pm 1.29.2015

toniann-ae

Dear Friends,
Once upon time there was a local singer songwriter who got a steady Thursday night local gig.
This was very exciting for her to play weekly with some of the finest players in her little town. One January
Thusday night she had planned to play with her good friend, and, have for the first time, her cousin
as her guest!
Sometimes the best layed plans mean nothing…this singer songer got the flu and couldn’t
perform!
Luckily her friend, Inge Berge, put on his superhero cape and saved the night! THE END

ib c-001
At Katrina’s tonight 1/29 from 7-10PM Inge Berge will be covering for me, so please show him your support and I’ll see you next week!

Diamond Cove Music ~ Acoustic Jam Sessions Invitation

diamond cove

 

Bluegrass Jam Sunday

 

Acoustic Jam Sessions Invitation
Slow Jam Tuesdays 7:30 – 9:30 pm  $15
Barn Jam (style wide open)  1st & 3rd Sunday  2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam  2nd & 4th Sunday 2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam! …. Do you love that high lonesome sound, that infectious toe tapping rhythm? Bluegrass Pickers you know who you are, so grab your instrument and come down to Dliamond Cove Music this Sunday.

The session will run 2-5 and is limited to 12 musicians’ seats. I’ve got room to have two jam sessions going at once which should help a lot! When you get more than 6 or 7 musicians jamming, it is usually neither satisfying for the musicians nor for any listeners. It just requires too much restraint. With two jams going at once, I can encourage enthusiasts of any ability to attend, and feel confident they should be able to get in on a session where they will feel comfortable. If you are having problems or have any suggestions, please let me know.

With a 12-seat limit, they’re sure to be snatched up quickly, so register today! If you reserve a seat in advance I will make sure you have a seat when you arrive. Musicians do come and go, so even if all seats have been reserved, come anyway and we will probably have room for you at some point.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT by emailing tom@diamondcovemusic.com
Listeners – please find a spot in the front half of the main room.
Customers – I’m open throughout the jam, but checking out new istruments is probably best done before and after the jam.
Musicians – I can’t offer loaner instruments for the jams. Cases must go into the rack or stacked just through door to 2nd room. Click to see proper etiquette.
