Steve Winslow- Stage Fort Park Beautification
Stage Fort Park Beautification Meeting-

A preliminary drawing was discussed outlining the new possible location for the Farmer’s Market. Amongst several proposed improvements, my favorite was the idea to connect, via a new trail, Stage Fort Park to Ravenswood. GENIUS!! A commitment was made to continue to work with the Cape Ann Farmer’s Market, Cyclocross, festivals, neighbors, and all interested parties. Looking forward to learning more!

Not a crime to let your kids walk to school any more
Relax, parents. Now you can allow your kids to walk, ride a bike, or take a bus to school, without you or your children getting arrested. The recently-signed Every Student Succeeds Act contains a section (858) that protects the rights of kids to walk or go out alone. The act was sponsored by Utah senator Mike Lee, who is a supporter of the Free Range Kids movement, and provides some hope for parents who feel that their kids should be allowed some autonomy to get by own their own.

Tourist from St Louis Missouri

A delightful couple from St Louis Missouri who come to Gloucester at least two times a year.  We exchanged emails and they sent me a photo they took at Stage Fort Park, the lobster they said was bought off a boat at Capt. Joe’s.

What did B.B. King think of Alexis P. Suter? See for yourself at the Gloucester Blues Fest Aug 8

The first time B.B. King heard Alexis P. Suter sing is when she opened for him in NYC.  This is what B.B. King said, “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”

On August 8th, only eight weeks from this Saturday, you can experience what he was talking about at the 4th annual Gloucester Blues Festival at Stage Fort Park.  Plus you get to hear 6 other blues legends too, including the guy known as “Hendrix of the Harminica,” Sugar Blue!

You know you want to be there and you don’t want be one of those people who forgets that you can save $12 per ticket by getting them now (GET TICKETS HERE).  So don’t put it off any longer.

Here’s a little taste of what you can expect from Alexis P. Suter at The Gloucester Blues Festival.

 

Q: Who’s the Hendrix of the Harmonica? A: Sugar Blue and you can see him LIVE at the Gloucester Blues Fest Aug 8

Three months from today on Saturday, August 8th, The 4th annual Gloucester Blues Festival kicks summer into high gear at Stage Fort Park featuring top national blues stars, including the man who’s known as Hendrix of the Harmonica, Sugar Blue. You’ve heard his signature playing on “Miss You” by The Rolling Stones. (You didn’t think Mick played that harp did you?)

Now you have the chance to see this blues icon (who’s also recorded with Willie Dixon, Prince, Stan Getz, Bob Dylan and many other) LIVE IN GLOUCESTER at The Gloucester Blues Festival on August 8th at Stage Fort Park.

What kills me is how much cheaper the tickets are if you buy them in advance — only $28 (GET TICKETS HERE) as opposed to $40 at the gate.  So stop what you’re doing right now and GET A PAIR OF TIX FOR YOUR MOM (and a pair for yourself too).

Here’s Sugar Blue live (Ooooh, what a tight band he’s got too!)

And here’s the Rolling Stones’ multi-platinum hit “Miss You” — you don’t see a harp in Mitch’s mouth, do you?
