About Marblehead
map
Marblehead Massachusetts is a picturesque coastal town that is steeped in history. In its early years fishing and the shoe industry were Marblehead's two major sources of income. Today it is mainly a residential community with some minor industry and a few specialty retail stores and is known to be one of the yachting capitals of the world.

The original painting of "The Spirit of 76" is housed in Abbot Hall and visitors come from all over the world to see it. Visitors also come to view the scenic harbor and the narrow crooked streets in the Historic district that is lined with antique Colonial and Victorian buildings.

The town of Marblehead offers residents and visitors a series of events during the course of the year that include an arts festival and a tall ships cruise. Also offered are jazz concerts and a Christmas walk.

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem- Suzie Brown- Scot Sax
Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem are a steadily deepening, 12-year brew of band chemistry, life experience and musical evolution. In 2007, the San Francisco Guardian called them "one of the most song- and arrangement-oriented bands in a field overgrown with pyrotechnic, jam- and solo-conscious virtuosos." Nice. And true. But what really sets this band apart is their connection to each other, to the audience, and to the music. Simultaneously loose and tight, their playing seems to tick by invisible radar; it's exciting, cathartic, and fun to watch. It's a band. On stage, they are Rani Arbo (fiddle, guitar), Andrew Kinsey (bass, banjo, uke), Anand Nayak (electric and acoustic guitars) and Scott Kessel (percussion). Kessel's percussion rig is 95% recycled, featuring a cardboard box, tin cans, caulk tubes, and a vinyl suitcase in lieu of a bass drum. All the band members sing, and their four-part harmonies soar, whether on a haunting Appalachian ballad, a Springsteen rocker, or a Bahamian a capella song. Many of their songs plumb the human condition, with topics ranging from joy to death (a favorite), loss, aging, blackbirds and red-haired boys. The band has jokingly dubbed itself an "agnostic gospel" revival show, but there's truth in it; the refrain they hear time and again from audiences all over the country is that their performances really do heal. Musically, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem reuse and recycle (but try hard not to reduce) 150 years of American music. They hang a Georgia Sea Islands song on a New Orleans groove. They write lyrics for an Irish fiddle tune and underpin it with an Afro-Cuban cajon. Leonard Cohen gets clawhammer banjo; Springsteen gets bluegrass harmonies. Their originals range from blues, to bluegrass, to Unitarian funk gospel, to crooner swing, to spooky folk-pop. With influences from Doc Watson to Django Reinhardt, from Fiddlin' John Carson to the funky Meters, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem celebrates America's past and takes it into the present. Of their signature style, Vancouver's Rogue Folk Review wrote, "It's as hard to classify as it is to praise highly enoughan intoxicating blend of roots music styles, with deep traditional roots and a healthy futuristic outlook. Strongly recommended." Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem's newest album, Some Bright Morning will be released on Signature Sounds in April of 2012. The band's 2010 family album, Ranky Tanky (Mayhem Music), won top awards from the Parents' Choice Foundation, National Association of Parenting Publications, and the American Library Association. Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem play festivals, performing arts centers and theaters from coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada. They specialize in multi-day residencies that include adult and family shows, as well as performances for under-served communities. Suzie Brown and Scot Sax Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, it's not that unique of a creative impulse. But when you're also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and selfless on the job, the catharsis is even more essential. "Music is my place to be honest," says Brown. "I can say how I'm really feeling. I like not having to be so strong." That candor fuels "Almost There," Brown's fan-funded sophomore release, which finds her contemplating the joys and struggles of love with even more vulnerability than she brought to her 2011 debut "Heartstrings." The album was produced by Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) and recorded live in Nashville. The Philadelphia-based Brown continues to carve out her place in the rich Folk/Americana tradition on the 11-song collection, which ranges from tender balladry to reggae-tinged blues and buoyant folk-rock as she bares the contents of her heart. But whether she's leaving love behind, embracing it with schoolgirl giddiness or meditating on yearnings unfulfilled, it's her voice, dulcet, with a husky edge and hint of twang, that captivates. Brown is especially arresting on ballads like "Fallen Down," a lament for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and "Space Between," a plaintively elegant portrait of love in crisis. With her gift for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics, it's hard to imagine it's been only five years since she penned her first song. In that time, she's been named a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong contest, a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, among other accolades, and had her music featured at Starbucks, The Gap and Anthropologie. If she has no plans to give up her part-time clinical job, it's because she has a true affinity for medicine. But, music, she says, is who she is. "I can't believe that my life was ever any way than it is right now," says Brown.

Ari Hest at the me and thee (Honor Finnegan opens!)
On his latest release Shouts and Whispers, singer-songwriter Ari Hest creates a non-typical collection of tracks that ultimately form a cohesive narrative. With songs of sadness and resignation giving way to lucidity and catharsis, Hest's introspection and intelligence are on display, creating moments of magic within his poetic, spare lyrics and backing them up with his ear for haunting melodies. Hest conceived half the album as an acoustic set, while the other half took shape via keyboards, as he explains below. Shouts and Whispers begins with the swirling, hypnotic 'Harvest', soon followed by a centerpiece track, the stunning, understated 'Into the Empty White'. 'How We'll Always Be' is perhaps a declaration of giving up the fight, and the melancholy 'No One Can Stay' has an elegant darkness. There's a glimmer of hope within 'Bona Fide', and finally a cathartic yowl as 'After The Thunder' builds to its crescendo. Hest comments on the process of making the album: "At first I wanted to write and record some songs where I put the guitar down and focused on keyboardsI've always been into music from Tears For Fears, Peter Gabriel, and Bruce Hornsby, and was excited to experiment in that direction. So I asked my buddy Carl Barc if I could invade his studio for a while to experiment with some ideas on his Juno and CP70 keyboards. I loved creating in a way I hadn't - using those instruments as the backbone of tracks and leaving guitar largely out of it." "In the middle of working on those songs I began playing solo shows supporting Judy Collins around the U.S. and Europe. Her show and her audience beg for a more acoustically minded set, so I'd go on stage with just a guitar and occasionally play songs that were fresh out of the oven. I enjoyed being able to take a break mentally from what I was doing with Carl. I was able to focus on how I could arrange these other new songs sparsely." Eventually Hest found the time to record a few of them with the help of producer Matt Pendergast at Q Division Studios in Boston, MA. Then he listened to both projects. "After hearing the two finished batches of songs I saw two distinct themes, not only in a musical sense but also lyrically. The vibe of the keyboard driven tracks is intense. I wrote a lot about the uncertainty of what I do for a living. On the contrary, the acoustic songs come from a place of lucidity. I started thinking it'd be cool to combine the two somehow." The result is an album that isn't an album in the traditional sense, but it manages to flow like a complete thought. "I've always been the introspective type. I guess as a singer-songwriter you're gonna have some of that anyway in your makeup. My previous records were inward most of the time, but Shouts and Whispers has another distinct angle, one of understanding the world I live in and embracing how I fit into it a bit easier than I used to." Hest has released seven albums, three EPs, and "52" in 2008, an innovative project whereby he wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday for a full year. In addition, Hest is half of the folk pop duo The Open Sea, along with longtime friend Rosi Golan. His music has been featured on numerous television shows including Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill. Recently, Ari's song "The Landlord" appeared in an episode of NPR's "All Things Considered". He's also scored a film called 'Dreamriders,' which won several independent film awards. And throughout his career, he has toured worldwide to support his records, most recently in Germany as well as several European countries, and built the kind of loyal fan base any musician would envy. While Shouts and Whispers is an excellent indication of what Hest is capable of, his live show may leave even more of an impression. Watching him play, one can't help but be thrust into his world, hanging on every word like a child listening to a ghost story. Opener: Honor Finnegan Honor Finnegan is the Susan Boyle of quirky indie folk, only hotter. Her songs are humorous then heartbreaking with melodies that soar. Based in New York City, she has been making a splash in the northeastern regional folk scene with her original songs and ukulele playing. Combining elements of musical theatre, comedy, traditional folk, and poetry, Honor is cooler than the other side of the pillow. Honor Finnegan was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago and learned to appreciate a variety of people and music living in a mostly African American neighborhood and sitting in the back seat of her single mothers car listening to the radio for long periods of time. When Honor was 11 her dream of being an actress came true when she was cast in the 1st National Tour of "Annie". Honor eventually outgrew the Annie thing and went back to Chicago, spending her early adult life studying Improv with Del Close who created "Honor Finnegan vs. the Brain of the Galaxy" to try and help the poor waif get somewhere in life. In 1991 Honor moved to Ireland. While living in Ireland, Honor sang with jazz bands, blues bands, big bands and traditional Irish bands including DeDannan for about a day. She released a cassette, "Learning to Fly", in 1996 and was a finalist in the Paddy Music Expo in Limerick. Her song "Better Love Water" was sung on the Gay Byrne Radio Hour twice with the all-female a Capella group, "The Cappuccinos". Honor moved to New York in 1998. Honor is a regular attendee at the late great Jack Hardy's songwriter's exchange, which has nurtured the talents of Suzanne Vega, and Shawn Colvin to name but a few. She is also a proud member of Tribes Hill, a folk music collective based in the Hudson Valley. She was a finalist in the 2011 Connecticut Folk Festival Songwriting Competition, and she has shared the stage with Buskin & Batteau, Sloan Wainwright, and David Massengill.
