The Rhumb Line~

I am wicked excited about the Monday night jam. 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.

Hello everyone!

Wednesday, April 4th

This week:


Pictured here from the cover of her latest release, “Frail to
Fearless”, Katrin Roush – known simply as Katrin) is among
the very best of my best all-time Rhumb Line guests. This
brand-new disc was masterfully produced by my good friend
and former bandmate Jerry Marotta (Orleans, Peter Gabriel,
Paul McCartney, many others) and offers a number of
compelling new “Katrinsongs” – many of which she plans to
feature this Wednesday for our intimate Gloucester forum.
Katrin is a serious artist who has carried her music and her
message around the world and back again. How lucky we
now are to have her among us! ~ Fly
Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest

The Everlasting Literary Festival – 2nd & 4th Tuesdays every month, 7pm

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.
