3rian King (voice, keys, guitar) and Nathan Cohen (violin, trumpet) are the founders of the neo-cabaret band, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?. The pair like to bend and blend genres, allowing the song to be what it needs to be in order to express its emotional core. Together they have packed houses in Boston, NYC, and throughout the country.

Veteran performers Chris Leghorn and Gerry Ryan have formed a new acoustic duo who perform a wide range of compelling songs that cover the traditions from folk, Celtic, sea shanties, original and popular music. They specialize in performing catchy songs with strong melodies and moving harmonies that captivate and entertain an audience.

This is concert six in a series of nine free outdoor concerts presented by the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation.   The family-friendly concert begins at 6 pm. Bring a picnic, folding chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the event will take place inside the Meetinghouse (no food or drink permitted inside.) Donations will be accepted to benefit the Gloucester Writers Center.

Since its founding in 2010, the Gloucester Writers Center has hosted hundreds of events including readings, classes, lectures, films, writers-in-residence and community events.
A working writers center in a working town, the GWC is housed in the home of Gloucester’s first poet laureate, Vincent Ferrini. For fifty years Ferrini lived and wrote poetry in his home and framing studio at 126 East Main Street. After his death in 2007 the project of opening the house as a living memorial began with Ferrini’s nephew, Henry Ferrini, long-time friend Annie Thomas, friend and Unitarian Universalist minister Paul Sawyer and New York writer André Spears. The GWC was incorporated before Sawyer’s death in 2010 and soon received 501(c)(3) status.

Next Friday’s concert features the Milkhouse Heaters from Vermont to benefit the Cape Ann Art Haven.
