Judith Sargent Murray‎Love Notes: The Love Letters of Judith Sargent Murray and John Murray, A Timeless American Love Story Set to Music

henry love letters

John Murray is known as the Father of Organized Universalism in America, and was a charismatic, handsome firebrand who preached love, kindness and virtue, sometimes at his peril.

And Judith Sargent Murray is considered the most important female essayist of 18th-century America and a founding Universalist. She challenged the new American nation to be virtuous, fair, and philanthropic; to improve female education, respect women’s abilities, and allow them to participate as full citizens.

The couple was often separated and exchanged hundreds of letters. Their love story is timeless and compelling.

The event has been scheduled at 5:30 p.m. to give you plenty of time to enjoy a lovely Valentine’s Day meal before or after!

Featuring Bonnie Hurd Smith & Henry∞Cameron Allen

Suggested donation: $10 at the door.

First and foremost, we want to say thank you to each and every person who has stepped foot in Alchemy over the past 12 years. It’s been an awesome, crazy run and you helped make it all possible.

We’re closing on Saturday. For real this time wink emoticon

The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn’t a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that’s not our goal.

We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we’re going to make that. We don’t know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we’re going to figure it out; and when we do, we’ll let you know.

CHELSEA BERRY

chelsea-berry-410

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor

Friday 8 PM

Shalin Liu-Center
37 Main St, Rockport, Massachusetts 01966

Tickets Available
tickets.rockportmusic.org

If “Americana” has come to mean music that resides in the interstices between country, folk, blues, and other genres without belonging to any of them, then Bromberg was Americana eons before the term came into vogue, and no more so than when he was playing with his quintet.

Bromberg is one of the most engaging, indeed mesmerizing, of performers. It’ll be a treat to hear him and his quintet perform their mix of bluegrass, country, R&B, and blues that’s united by Bromberg’s soulful picking and gravelly vocals.

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Saturday, Jan 30, Doors at 7 PM, Concert at 7:30PM

Tickets: $15 non-members/ $10 RNAC members, purchase below!

Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from the woods of Medieval France to a 1930s New Orleans jukejoint. Led by the gender-defying voice of 3rian King, the ensemble delivers their own brand smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French cafe.

The soul of the band is rooted in its songs – poetic, inventive, emotionally naked meditations on love, religion, sexuality, and identity in the tradition of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, and Laura Nyro. The band also loves to reimagine classics from Johnny Cash, Prince, and Joni Mitchell to Irish folk tunes and Appalachian murder ballads.

With Nathan Cohen’s cinematic violin & haunting trumpet, Joe Cardoza’s upright bass, Dennis Monagle’s artful drums, Renee Dupuis warm keys and stellar voice, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? sells out legendary clubs from Club Passim & Oberon in Cambridge, MA to The Duplex in NYC, recently earning the Critic’s Pick in Time Out New York.

Their original song “Cold Rain” was recently covered by New Orleans Soul Queen, Irma Thomas, on her Grammy-nominated CD “Simply Grand,” with the track earning high praise in Rolling Stone, USA Today & The VIllage Voice.

The latest album by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, “Little Bit Of Blue” was recently launched with two sold-out CD-release parties in Boston & NYC, with the songs accompanied by circus performers, dancers, and animation by award-winning filmmaker, Ruth Lingford.

Shir David plays powerful, soulful music rooted in Jewish tradition infused with rhythms of Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Gloucester resident and classically trained violinist, Joe Kessler, of the renowned Klezmer group Klezwoods, adds the fervor and flavor of many cultures with his signature blue violin.

Jake Pardee of Rockport will be on bass holding down exquisite grooves, solid, deep, and in the pocket.

CHELSEA BERRY

chelsea-berry-410

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor

Rest In Peace ~David Bowie

David Bowie, 1973

Ziggy Stardust

Oh
Oh, yeah

Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And the Spiders from Mars
He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man
Then we were Ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang
Screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan
He could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
They came on so loaded, man
Well-hung and snow-white tan

So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?
Oh

Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar

Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind, ah
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band

Oh, yeah
Ooh

Ziggy played guitar

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor

A HOLIDAY GUITAR CONCERT

bonfield

courtesy photo

Fingerstyle guitarist Ken Bonfield has performed throughout the United States for more than 20 years. Based in Gloucester, Bonfield is a regular at guitar festivals, concert series, and acoustic venues across North America, and has released seven albums.

“Ken Bonfield’s instrumental guitar work patently avoids the incessant noodling… instead melody is king and Bonfield’s gifted fingers flesh out a beautiful cavalcade of notes that are at times reminiscent of a human voice singing and often soaring.” –Frank Rabey, Mountain Xpress

 In his open-hearted, welcoming concerts, workshops and master classes, he shares new guitar dimensions and sonic explorations with his listeners. His compositions are performed with his unique “chamber ensemble” of handcrafted instruments ranging from baritone guitar to an 11-string harp guitar to a high-string guitar which Bonfield likens to a 6-string, Steel-String ukulele.

Join us for this all-ages holiday get-together, where Ken will be joined by fellow renowned guitarist Raymond Gonzalez performing holiday favorites and s00n-to-be-favorites in our comfortable and inviting living-room-style venue.

 Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his projectile format and penchant for snake charming, this is the guy to take you into the Twilight Zone. Make you forget about that credit card bill due in January. He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one! After This Thursday, We’ll be off until January 7, when the good Old Salty Jazz Band returns for some musical mayhem.

Come and hear The Heather Pierson Quartet perform music from A Charlie Brown Christmas and other jazzy Christmas favorites this Saturday evening, December 12, at 7:30. One of the most endearing Christmas tales ever told, A Charlie Brown Christmas has proven to be an enduring classic. The musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi, is just as poignant and touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit “Linus and Lucy”. Here’s a video of a performance of My Little Drum at Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham two Christmases ago.

UP COMING EVENTS

mark erelli

7 Central, in conjunction with Single Tree Music, introduces our all-new SONGWRITERS SERIES. This new series will present some of the country’s best singer-songwriters upstairs in our 7UP room.

Our first show features Mark Erelli – a nationally-recognized performer, writer, and producer.

Tickets are just $15 and available with the host stand, by calling 978-526-7494 or at www.brownpapertickets.com.

About Mark Erelli:

When questioned about his musical heroes as younger artist, Mark Erelli would dutifully rattle off names like Jackson Browne and John Hiatt—the sort of emotionally literate lyricist and soulful vocalist to which he was oft-compared. But Erelli would always throw the interviewer a curveball byalso listing musicians like David Lindley and Ry Cooder, two sidemen closely associated with Browne and Hiatt’s best albums. “As a teenager I sat in front of my stereo for hours, in hopes of learning to write songs like that,” remembers Erelli, “but I also tried to learn the guitar solos on those records note for note.”

Thousands of musical miles later, Mark Erelli now travels his own road that both embodies and challenges our expectations of a singer/songwriter. Erelli has tackled everything from western swing and protest songs to lullabies and murder ballads, all in a richly expressive voice that Twangville.com heralds as “the male counterpart to Neko Case.” It is a journey that has taken Erelli from church basement coffeehouses to the main stage of the Newport Folk Festival, stopping briefly along the way to sing the national anthem at Fenway Park.

Erelli still indulges that teenage fascination with the guitar solos, though it has evolved into a career as an in-demand multi-instrumentalist sideman. These days, fans are just as likely to find Erelli backing up Lori McKenna at the Grand Ole Opry, or Josh Ritter at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as they are to see a solo acoustic performance at venerable listening rooms like Harvard Square’s Club Passim. Some might see chasing both a timeless lyric and an exquisite lap steel guitar solo as mutually exclusive endeavors, but not Erelli.

The last year alone has seen Erelli fronting the bluegrass band Barnstar!, backing up Grammy™ Award-winning songwriters like Paula Cole, or branching into the producer role for Lori McKenna’s next record, in between performing solo shows everywhere from New England to Nebraska. For casual listeners that prefer artists who churn out variations on the same theme year after year, Mark Erelli presents a bit of a dilemma.

“I don’t know anyone who likes just one type of music,” says Erelli. “There are so many people that would jump at the chance to play music for a living. I’m lucky enough to actually get to do it, and I intend to follow it wherever it leads me.” It’s just that kind of attitude that may someday find a teenager listening intently to one of Mark Erelli’s songs blaring out of stereo, trying to figure out how he did it all, and did it all so well.

Larcom Theatre
13 Wallis St, Beverly, Ma.

Badfinger

Tickets Available  @ gimmelive.com
British Invasion rock stars, Badfinger, kick off GIMMELIVE’s highly anticipated third season at Beverly’s fully-restored, historic Larcom Theatre, performing ONE NIGHT ONLY. Hand picked by The Beatles, Badfinger was the first group signed to the Beatles’ label, Apple Records and their first #1 hit “Come And Get It” was written by Paul McCartney!

George Harrison and Paul McCartney produced a string of world-wide Badfinger hits, including “No Matter What,” “Day After Day,” “Without You” and “Baby Blue”, which hit the charts again in 2013 on the Breaking Bad soundtrack.

Still led by founder Joey Molland, who performed on George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” album and John Lennon’s “Imagine” album, Badfinger’s high energy concerts continue to thrill audiences world-wide.

Don’t miss Badfinger’s only Boston area stop on their U.S. Tour at Beverly’s intimate, acoustically spectacular Larcom Theatre.

Brooks Young Band will open the show. Hailing from Salem, MA, Brooks Young Band saturate their songs with rock and roll edge and blues feel, going for a direct, emotional and powerful sonic blend.
Brooks’ searing guitar leads and soulful vocal performances lock in perfectly with the solid rhythm section, creating an inspirational and uplifting sonic texture along the lines of influential performers such as Eric Clapton and Dave Matthews.
The Brooks Young Band has toured extensively throughout New England, sharing the stage with icons such as B.B. King, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, The Wallflowers, and Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band. They have also had the privilege of performing for Vice President Joe Biden.

BLUE OYSTER CULT w/ Gary Hoey

Saturday
8:00pm

blue oyseter cult

For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

BÖC’s canon includes three stone-­‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from 1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin.

Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee,””Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and “Shooting Shark.”

The intense creative vision of BÖC’s original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Kasim Sulton, and drummer Jules Radino.

Opening for Blue Oyster Cult is Gary Hoey, world renowned rock guitarist, who has a collection of 18 albums to his credit, a number five Billboard rock hit with “Hocus Pocus” and who is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. His career has taken him on tours where he traded licks with legends Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, Stevie Vai, Peter Frampton and Dick Dale. Hoey’s latest release, “Living Like a Runaway” which he co-wrote and produced with Metal Queen, Lita Ford, has received rave reviews.

Manchester Community Center
40 Beach St, Manchester, Massachusetts 01944

Tickets Available

Single Tree Music Presents:

Toronto singer-songwriter, Ken Yates, and Gloucester singer-songwriter, Fozzie Hill, share a very special double bill of songs and stories at the Manchester Community Center in picturesque Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.

Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks and beverages to this performance.

About Ken Yates:

Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first album, “The Backseat EP”, and received the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer then posted a full page blog about Yates’ ability as a writer stating, “Ken Yates wrote a song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’ this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today”. Yates’ EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year. He was recently chosen as The 2014 Colleen Peterson Award winner by the Ontario Arts Council for his song “The One That Got Away”.

About Fozzie Hill:

Fozzie Hill is about as authentic as one can be. Born and forever rooted in Gloucester, her ambition from the age of seven, when she first remembers being drawn into the deep mystery of the human voice, has been to ” release that power inside” of herself.

When friends and neighbors insisted that she share her gift, and after a dear friend challenged her to learn three songs on guitar, and when she did, gifted her with that guitar- (her first,) she began performing as a young woman in the 1970 and 80s in Boston at the Cantab Lounge, Johnny D’s, the Tam.

Now, decades later, with a CD (“AKA Fozzie, Alberta Hill,” 2003) produced by Geoffrey Richon and Rose Osborne and many of those Gloucester friends who “cared enough to get under my skin,” Fozzie is again performing her intuitive, soulful music, as a popular regular at Gloucester’s Rhumbline with her bass player Wolf Ginandes.

She turns a barroom into a listening room with her own covers and original songs influenced by a diverse array of musicians such as Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Donovan, John Sebastian, Ferron, and the Rolling Stones.

Boston-area bluesman Larry Carsman recently said of Fozzie Hill, ” Count me in as new member of Fozzie’s fan club. She was so magical, I felt transformed.”
