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.

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

The Dog Bar~

Mondays – 6:00 to 8:00 ~ Chantey Night, an open Monday 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 Cape Ann Brewing Company to  the Dog Bar . The singing begins at 6:00 every Monday 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.

Tom Chapin


For more than five decades and over twenty albums, singer-songwriter-guitarist Tom Chapin has entertained, amused, and enlightened audiences of all ages. Whether as a folk troubadour or a pioneer in the field of children’s music, his reputation is one of insightful, heartfelt song-craft and a personal warmth of storytelling. Winner of three Grammy Awards, Chapin’s latest family release is the pun-intended Give PEAS A Chance (2011). From his childhood in Brooklyn where he grew up with his brothers Harry and Steve, to the joys of being a grandparent, his solo acoustic show features music from his vast career paired with traditional songs honoring his late brother, singer-songwriter and activist Harry Chapin. If you’re coming to the show and have a specific song request, please visit his website and hear for yourself why Billboard Magazine calls him “totally captivating.”
