Please join the Rocky Neck Art Colony for Nights on the Neck, an evening of gallery receptions and entertainment, on Thursday, July 2, 5-9 pm, featuring:
Three Sheets to the Wind
The Schooner Adventure organization spawned Three Sheets to the Wind, a group of local musicians and Adventure crew members who are preserving the history of maritime work songs (chanteys) and forebitter songs.
Corwin Ericson lives in western Massachusetts where he works as a writer, editor, and college instructor. He will read from his novel-in-progress, Swell, from which an excerpt was recently published in X: The Erotic Anthology, edited by Susie Bright (Chronicle, 2008).
Rick Drost began singing with a Kingston Trio-style group in high school, continued in a small folk group in college, then a glee club and an opera chorus. He started writing and singing around coffeehouses in DC and New England in the ’70s, finally settling in Cambridge MA where he started playing with the folk-rock group Parts and Labor. He performs at least once a week, wherever he goes, and has enjoyed stints with great instructors and students at Song School in Colorado , SAMW and other workshops.
Local author Thomas A. Hauck’s novel, Pistonhead, tells the story of Charlie Sinclair, guitarist in a rock band. His job is being outsourced. His best friend is a drug addict. His apartment is full of mice. The girl he loves is unattainable and his old girlfriend wants to dig her claws into him again. Pistonhead is the story of one week in Charlie Sinclair’s life — a week that changed him forever.
Ev Harlow & Friends
Ev Harlow is known for his wacky songs and goofball on-stage banter. His style has a country/folk flavor that is not often heard in these parts. He will have some very talented friends sitting in and having way too much fun!
Nights on the Neck is located on Rocky Neck Avenue , East Gloucester. For specific performance times and locations, please see signage in the Rocky Neck Avenue parking lot on the evening of the event.
