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.

Hello everyone!

Wednesday, August 10th

Special Guest: ALLEN ESTES!

Easily Cape Ann’s most prolific songwriter, Allen Estes holds
well over a thousand songs in his deep catalog – some of
which were co-written with and/or recorded by such country
music giants as Tammy Wynette, The Judds, Emmy-Lou Harris
and Shania Twain. And here he is in little ol’ Gloucester.
How fortunate we all are!
Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm

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.
