I had no idea remote control golf bags were A Thing. This leads me to a question for golfers…

Bass Rocks

Also are there caddies any more? I didn’t see any yesterday afternoon but maybe they’re around on the weekends? I was never a caddy at Bass rocks growing up because I was working at the dock but what a great job for a young kid. Incredible education just walking around with heavy hitters on the golf course just gleaning intel about life in general.

BACH VIOLIN SERIES CONTINUES IN ANNISQUAM

The Annisquam Village Church presents violinist Scott Moore in the second of a three-part series of Bach Sonatas and Partitas this Sunday, April 24 at 3 PM. Moore, the newly appointed  Artist-in-Residence at the Village Church, has already won a following for his Bach playing (not to mention a fan-base built on his performances in bluegrass, folk, rock, and other idioms). AVC Music Director, Kathleen Adams adds, “These brilliant works demand technical virtuosity, yes, and Scott has that in spades, but his playing here reaches into the senses and emotions in a way that one can rarely experience. It’s a fusion of Bach with time and place ….not reproducible.”

The historic Annisquam Village Church provides the ideal acoustic for chamber music, combining antique intimacy with its unique resonance. After the first concert of the series, an audience member exclaimed “He could play in Carnegie Hall!” Another replied, “Yes, but it sounds best here!” Located at the head of Lobster Cove at 820 Washington Street (corner of Washington and Leonard streets) the 1830’s clapboard building was recently renovated, with new facilities for those with disabilities, including a ‘lift’ to the Cove Room where a reception follows the concert. All are welcome! Donations gratefully accepted.

The third (and final) concert in the Bach series takes place May 22.

Mother’s Day Concert at Gloucester Stage Company,Sunday, May 8th, 2PM

From Birdland to Fishtown!

A Grammy-nominated musician, powerhouse vocalist, New York-based bandleader and winner of the 2021 American Traditions Vocal Competition Gold Medal, Nicole Zuraitis continues to establish herself as an undeniable force in the modern jazz landscape of both NYC and beyond. Nicole’s bold, versatile voice possesses a special combination of soothing warmth, familiar authenticity, and raw grit that is reinventing the world’s conception of what it means to be a jazz artist. She infuses elements of multiple genres and approaches into her artistry, refusing to limit herself to any one corner of the music business. With a “heart as big as her remarkable voice,” (Jazz Police) Nicole’s effervescent personality and boundless enthusiasm for sharing the joy of music keep her audiences thrilled

In 2019, Nicole was nominated for a Grammy alongside her husband, renowned drummer and bandleader Dan Pugach, for their arrangement and performance of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” In recognition of her talents, Nicole has won a litany of other awards, including the New York City Songwriting Competition Coffee Music Project (2016), the Herb Alpert ASCAP Young Composer Award (2014), and the Gold Medal, Ben Tucker Jazz Award, People’s Choice, and Johnny Mercer Award in the National American Traditions Vocal Competition. In 2015, Nicole was the second runner-up in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition. In 2020, Forbes Magazine featured Nicole’s pandemic pivot project, “Virtual Piano Lounge Plus One.”

Most recently Nicole has returned to the recording studio, her latest album is produced by legendary jazz performer Christian McBride and scheduled for release later this year. She’s back to the skies with a recent tour of Lithuania, performing with their national orchestra. And she is on the road from performing with the Savannah Philharmonic to NYC ‘s famous jazz mecca, Birdland. This is her only local performance- that’s right..from Birdland to Fishtown! Don’t miss this concert!

(and you don’t have to be a Mom-  lover of great music!)
