Soul Rebel Project Concert Castle Hill tomorrow & Zach joins in!

Soul Rebel Project will be playing tomorrow at the Thursday Night Picnic Concert at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate. It’s the 21st year for this summer concert series at Cranes, a Trustees property, 290 Argilla Rd, Ipswich, MA. Concerts are 7pm – 9pm and gates open at 5pm for the tailgate picnic part. Tickets are available for sale at the gate only: Members: $20/car; Nonmembers: $30/car; Walk-in, bicycle, & motorcycle: $10. 

I’m psyched to hear that Zach Gorrell will be joining in. You may know Zach from his work at Sound Harbor Cape Ann Art Haven or Cape Ann Big Band. They just played Fiesta. He’s awesome! Of course, Gloucester knows Soul Rebel Project, too. And they just played during Fiesta at Minglewood.


The Thursday Night picnic concerts at Harbor Loop in Gloucester are free and held from 6-9pm. Tony Frontiero and John Rockwell & the Headlands are playing Harbor Loop tomorrow.

Introducing Sound Harbor

A tremendous music education initiative is coming to Gloucester. The collaboration is new, but the founding musicians are familiar to many and they include Renee Dupuis, Steve Lacey, and Charlee Bianchini. We are so excited for Sound Harbor (terrific name btw!) and wish them the greatest success.

Date: February 7th
Time: 2:30 – 4:30 pm
