Vermont’s Milkhouse Heaters in Free Concert, Friday, August 12, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Corner of Middle and Church Streets, Gloucester, MA
The Milkhouse Heaters are a husband and wife duo. Mike Sheehy plays guitar and harmonica and Jan Sheehy plays bass. Both sing. They have a vocal harmony style that has been compared to Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons.
In the early days, Mike played bass while Jan sang lead and played guitar. They could often be found kicking around the Boston music scene. They received airplay on several of the city’s radio stations and were nominated for a Boston Music Award in 2001. They have shared the stage with The Black Crowes, Corey Glover, Fuel, Feeder, and Hum as well as playing the Boston leg of The Vans Warped Tour. Their songs are on numerous compilations alongside the likes of G. Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, Burning Spear, and The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones.
This is concert seven 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 Art Haven.
