The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation

July 30, 2021

The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents What Time Is It Mr. Fox? in a free Friday evening concert on Meetinghouse Green
at the corner of Middle and Church Street, August 6 at 6:00 p.m. Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?
delivers their own brand of smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Leonard Cohen and Amy Winehouse
performing unplugged in a French café. Renowned for their original songs combining rich lyrical imagery with a cinematic sensibility,
their music explores themes of love, spirituality, and identity.

Free-will donations go to the evening’s featured local non-profit partner, North Shore Health Project, a group that works to alleviate
the health impacts of HIV/AIDS in our community, as well as providing LGBTQ+ services. The evening’s food vendor will offer pizza.
The 2021 summer music series is dedicated in memory of Harry Hintlian for his encouragement, generosity, and for making the
Meetinghouse a net zero building. For more information, a full schedule of upcoming concerts, and to sign up for the GMF

The band features 3rian King on lead vocals, guitar and keys; Renee Dupuis on lead vocals, keys and melodica; Nathan Cohen on
fiddle and trumpet; Joe Cardoza on upright bass; and Dennis Monagle on drums. In summer 2019, the band premiered their new
multimedia animated musical “Medusa,” a feminist retelling of the myth in a completely sold-out run at the Charles Hayden Planetarium,
Museum of Science, Boston. The team is currently adapting the play into a fully staged theater production.

Music on Meetinghouse Green, now in its sixth season, features nine free Friday evening concerts with great music, favorite foods from
local vendors, and benefits a different North Shore non-profit organization each week through free-will donations from the audience.
Concert goers bring lawn chairs and blankets to spread out across the spacious green. Performances are handicap accessible, parking
on the Green is limited to persons with disabilities only.

Founded in 2015, the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is dedicated to preserving the landmark building as a civic hub,
entertainment venue, and community center. In addition to its work to preserve the historic 1806 Meetinghouse, GMF is
currently raising funds to restore Meetinghouse Green to provide a safe and more flexible outdoor concert and event venue.

Thanks to our Sponsors all the series’ expenses, such as for the musicians, are pre-paid. 100% of the free-will donations go to
our non-profit community partners.
