OK, I know this is a blog and we’re supposed to post about what’s happening right now — especially while our fearless leader is on vacation. But I just can’t resist telling people to save next Tuesday, May 15 at 7:30 for something you really don’t want to miss.
I’m going to bet there are people reading this who have never been to Shalin Liu. Here’s your chance. It’s FREE. And I’ll bet there are people reading who’ve never heard a harpsichord played live. You’re in for a treat. Shalin Liu is probably one of the best places on Earth to hear one — and it’s right down the street.
Then there’s the fact that Greg Bover, who lives in Magnolia and works at C.B. Fisk, built the harpsichord that his wife Frances Fitch, one of the area’s most accomplished musicians, will be playing. And the harpsichord is as beautiful to look at is it is to hear. So save the date, come on out and enjoy the talent that’s right in our own back yard.
Now for the immediate. This is a big week on Cape Ann:
- Inge Berge starts his month-long residency at Giuseppe’s on Thursday
- Brad Byrd brings his band to Minglewood for another video shoot on Saturday — and you can be in the video if you’re there.
- Allen Estes is guest host at Rhumb Line Wednesday night while Fly is touring.
- Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents are at the Rhumb Line on Friday
