CONCERT EVENT – An Evening With Patty Larkin (Fri. Apr. 3 @ 8:00pm)
By Robert Newton on January 5, 2015
Learn more about Patty Larkin.Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her “soundscape experiments” while Rolling Stone praises her “evocative and sonic shading.” She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).

Larkin grew up in a musical and artistic family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Descended from a long line of Irish American singers and taletellers, her mother was a painter, her sisters both musicians. She learned at a young age to appreciate the beauty of the arts. She began classical piano studies at age 7, and became swept up in the sounds of pop and folk in the 60s, teaching herself the guitar and experimenting with songwriting in high school. An English major, Larkin sang throughout her high school and college career, starting out in coffeehouses in Oregon and San Francisco. Upon graduation from the University of Oregon, she moved to Boston and devoted herself to music, busking on the streets of Cambridge and studying jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music and with Boston area jazz guitarists.

 Get ready for another themed first Friday at Minglewood to get April off to fun start!

April’s theme is….
heros villians
DISNEY: Heroes vs Villains!

Always wanted a chance to rock Aladdin’s vest? Want to know how you’d look as Jafar or a bad ass evil queen? Or hey, that whole Ursula sea witch/half-octopus thing seems kind of fun…This is your night to shine! It’s time to get in touch with your inner Disney and dress up as your favorite hero or dastardly villain while you party all night long to the infectious “groove” of Groove Therapy.

THERE WILL BE A COSTUME CONTEST.

A $25 gift card hangs in the balance, so make it good!

This is a night you won’t forget!

Bluegrass Jam & Barn Jam (style wide open)

Sundays

diamond cove

Acoustic Jam Sessions Invitation
Slow Jam Tuesdays 7:30 – 9:30 pm  $15
Barn Jam (style wide open)  1st & 3rd Sunday  2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam  2nd & 4th Sunday 2 – 5  Free
Bluegrass Jam! …. Do you love that high lonesome sound, that infectious toe tapping rhythm? Bluegrass Pickers you know who you are, so grab your instrument and come down to Dliamond Cove Music this Sunday.

The session will run 2-5 and is limited to 12 musicians’ seats. I’ve got room to have two jam sessions going at once which should help a lot! When you get more than 6 or 7 musicians jamming, it is usually neither satisfying for the musicians nor for any listeners. It just requires too much restraint. With two jams going at once, I can encourage enthusiasts of any ability to attend, and feel confident they should be able to get in on a session where they will feel comfortable. If you are having problems or have any suggestions, please let me know.

With a 12-seat limit, they’re sure to be snatched up quickly, so register today! If you reserve a seat in advance I will make sure you have a seat when you arrive. Musicians do come and go, so even if all seats have been reserved, come anyway and we will probably have room for you at some point.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT by emailing tom@diamondcovemusic.com
Listeners – please find a spot in the front half of the main room.
Customers – I’m open throughout the jam, but checking out new istruments is probably best done before and after the jam.
Musicians – I can’t offer loaner instruments for the jams. Cases must go into the rack or stacked just through door to 2nd room. Click to see proper etiquette.

dave sag

This Thursday let’s welcome back Gloucester’s own Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash for another groovy night of surf toons and other related guitar ruminations. Bobby’s the best! With his effervescent style he’ll have you on the floor writhing with abandon. Along with David “Doc” Vincent on the skins, the circle is complete. We’ll be re-creating all your memories that were playing on your 8-track while you were losing your virginity. Don’t miss it!
And Sunday, from 6 to 9, I’ll be assisting at a radioactive Easter egg hunt with my Geiger counter and such wonderful musicians as Chris Brown, Joe Bargar and Bob Dallas. We’ll be holding up at O’Rielly’s Bar in downtown Newton from 6 to 9. Stop by on the way back from the rest home.
