Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved the Celebrate Gloucester Benefit Concert featuring John Sebastian to Saturday, September 13 at the UU Meetinghouse. Get tickets here.
This is one more example of how things often work out despite my frustration when I found out about the conflict. The UU Meetinghouse a fitting venue given that this concert helps raise money for its restoration and the acoustics are excellent. But with no air conditioning, it wouldn’t have worked for an August concert. However, it’s perfect for September when the average high is 72 and low is 55 (it might be a little chilly at 8pm on the water that time of year) and the cushioned pews are quite comfortable.
This concert is a perfect opportunity to experience the music that helped define a generation up close and personal. Here’s a video of John Sebastian at Woodstock (45 years ago this August):
