Coordinated by Kitt Cox

Saturday, August 27, 2022 2 – 6 PM

Cultural Center at Rocky Neck 6 Wonson Street Gloucester, MA

Sailor Stan’s 1 Wonson Street Gloucester MA

Ice Cream Gallery 39 Rocky Neck Ave Gloucester MA

International Play Music on the Porch Day returns to Rocky Neck on Saturday, August 27 starting at 2 PM in various locations throughout the neighborhood. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy these free porch concerts while exploring the galleries, restaurants, and stunning views. To participate or for more information contact local musician and organizer Kitt Cox,

Building off last year’s success on Rocky Neck, this year’s International Play Music on the Porch Day includes several musicians performing a variety of genres, including folk, sea shanties, jazz, West African drums, acoustic blues, and children’s music to attract both locals and tourists to listen, dance, visit galleries and dine at Rocky Neck’s restaurants. Kitt Cox brought this effort to the neighborhood last year and continues to expand the local reach of this worldwide event.  The three main locations and featured artists are listed below. Schedule is subject to change.

#1 The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck (6 Wonson St.):  2 PM West African Drumming with Mamadou Diop;   3:30 PM “The Pigeon Brothers”

#2 Rocky Neck Ice Cream (39 Rocky Neck Ave):  2:30 PM – PS&R Trio;  3 PM – Paul Knox

#3 Sailor Stan’s (1 Wonson St): 2 PM Open Stage with Jeanne Carey, Steve Yost, Barry O’Brien, Kitt Cox and guests

Play Music on The Porch Day is a worldwide event that’s been in full swing since 2018, when thousands of musicians in countries from Australia to Zimbabwe participated. It is an inclusive concept that unites people around the world. Musicians of all kinds perform on their porches on the last Saturday in August, and they post their live-recorded videos with the #playmusicontheporchday hashtag which allows them all to be streamed into a live and ongoing worldwide event on the web. The custom flier for this year’s event was created by young Rocky Neck resident Charlie E.

A sampling of this year’s performers includes fingerstyle guitarist Paul Knox, West African drummer Mamadou Diop, multi-instrumentalist Steve Yost, female vocal trio PRS and Cape Ann-inspired songwriter (and children’s performer) Kitt Cox. This information is subject to change.

Gloucester Luminaries & Love + Canned Good Drive with a purpose

Hi Joey,

on 8/29 @ 6:30pm we are hosting the Luminaries & Love display (Formerly known as the Gloucester Overdose Vigil) at the FlagPole area next to the Cut Bridge on the Boulevard. This is a night to remember community members we have lost to overdose / substance use and a chance to gather in support of the loved ones left behind. For the third year in a row we have moved away from anything that feels like a service and are just creating a beautiful space for people to linger & be together. Participants can walk the 800+ bag luminary display, make new bags, and draw giant chalk hearts on the sidewalk. We hope to Light The Boulevard with Love. City Hall will also be lit purple in recognition of International Overdose Awareness Day & in Solidarity of the Luminaries & Love event.

We are asking for donations of canned goods to help weigh down the 800+ bags, The Open Door will be onsite and collected items will be donated to them at the end of the event. We have several community collection sites but so far donations have been low. Items can be dropped at Cape Ann Lanes, The Cape Ann YMCA and GPD, Lobby. Items can also be brought the night of. Any help spreading the word would be much appreciated. Thank you!

With appreciation – Kathy Day
