It is unfortunate at times to misinform and I hope that if one finds an error in this posting please bring it to my attention so it can be fixed immediately if not sooner.



Please be sure to check out the links to all these fine musicians and venues on the side bar of this blog.

The Rhumb Line~

Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Open Jam with Dan King and friends

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there to let loose with no planned agenda.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Tuesday – 9:00 to 12:30 ~   Henely Douglas and Soul Force ~V~

Wednesdays at the Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:00 ~  with Fly Amero



This wonderfully talented singer/songwriter and close friend
to so many of us here in Gloucester moved to Tennessee a
number of years ago.  We’ve all missed him terribly.  Finally,
he has found an opportunity to come and see us again, and
we just can’t wait!  As a special treat for all you friends and
fans, who I just KNOW will be there, here’s an ED-it of BIG
ED’s beautiful and soulful ballad, “Fragile Is The Flower”.

If you want the full-version, well, you’ll just have to click on
the link below and buy – along with a few other such gems…

Meanwhile, we’ve gone and lined up two of Cape Ann’s top
performers in honor of this long-awaited, very special evening…

Cape Ann Brewing ~

Chantey Night, an open Tuesday night sing featuring members of Three Sheets to the Wind, Knockabout, and other music groups from the North Shore and the Boston area, has moved from the now-closed Cameron’s to the Cape Ann Brewing Company.   The singing begins at 8:30 every Tuesday night. For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see.  If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing.  Best to plan it for a different night at Cape Ann Brewing.
