The Blues Trail Revisited From Ted Reed Now Available To Rent

The Blues Trail Revisited

In 1971, Ted Reed drove through the South to find some of the last living blues legends and to discover the roots of American music. Fifty years later, Reed returned to experience the evolution of American music, resulting in this memoir that encompasses the upheavals of Civil Rights and the power of memory.

“A story of blues friends, fans and follow-through, Ted Reed’s remarkable BLUES TRAIL REVISITED spans 50 years — tying together past Southern blues traditions with those of the present-day and perhaps even the future.”
– Roger Stolle, Cat Head Promotions

“The memories that this film brought back were outstanding and made me want to go back and discover some of the places that I missed . . . This movie will also make anyone that is not into the Blues or Mississippi change their mind.”
– Paul Benjamin, North Atlantic Blues Festival


Gloucester Stage wants to give a big shout out to Tono’s Neal Maver as their very special Chef Consultant on the production of SEARED being performed now through August 22 at Windhover Center for Performing Arts in Rockport!

Maver shared the tricks of the culinary trade with the play’s lead James Louis Wagner recently in his busy kitchen of Tono in Gloucester to get Wagner ready for the show.

Gloucester Stage’s  hilarious and insightful new play, SEARED is set in an intimate working kitchen of a New York City restaurant where it explores the delicate balance between a creative spirit navigating success, recognition, and responsibility to a financial bottom line.  

Gloucester Stage’s performances are outdoors Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 3:30 pm at Windhover Center for the Performing Arts, 257R Granite St, Rockport, MA. Tickets are now on sale and available at

Annisquam Village Players Present…….

Nothing to Hyde will be presented by the Annisquam Village Players this week August 11-14 outside between the town hall and the Annisquam Exchange on Leonard Street. We talked with director Terry Sands about this original musical written by Mary Curtis and Tony Hutchins. Tomorrow’s tickets have already sold out so get yours online as soon as possible ($35). Loosely based on The Strange Tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, this production features Peter Nelson as Edward Hyde. He presented a number for our entertainment which I encourage you to review below! Very entertaining.

Get your tickets online for this outdoor event (spaced seating so limited tickets available)! You won’t want to miss this original production.

I have video to share but am currently unable to upload it. Please stay tuned!
