A chance for people with ties to Gloucester’s fishing industry to record their experiences
GLOUCESTER, Mass. (January 17, 2015) – The Cape Ann Museum invites anyone with a link to Gloucester’s fishing industry to come in to the Museum between now and the end of January to share stories of their work and life experiences.
A video recording station has been set up in the Portraits of a Working Waterfront exhibit gallery for this purpose. The user-friendly touch screen offers a series of questions and prompts to inspire people to share their stories. Subjects from the portrait series by Jim Hooper, or anyone who fishes out of Gloucester, has family ties to the industry, or who works in a shore-side business connected to fishing is encouraged to take part. Participants are welcome to bring friends or family members to reminisce with, or may choose to tell their stories individually. The recordings will be archived, along with the photographs from the portrait series, and will serve as documents of this pivotal time in the history of the industry and the City.
The Working Waterfront exhibition and related programming are offered in collaboration with the Northeast Seafood Coalition.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Backyard Growers, FoodCorps, Cape Ann Fresh Catch and the Gloucester school district are spreading fresh locally caught fish to yet another Gloucester school. On Tuesday January 20, Plum Cove students will get to try Gloucester-caught hake provided by Cape Ann Fresh Catch. This is the first elementary school in Gloucester to join Gloucester High School and O’Maley middle school in serving fresh Gloucester-caught fish in their lunches. Students will be asked to vote on whether they like the fish, and if they do – and we’re sure they will – it will be added to the menu at Plum Cove, and we’ll set up taste tests at the rest of the elementary schools in Gloucester. Ultimately, we hope to serve fresh, nutritious, Gloucester-caught fish at every school in the district!
