DEB HARDY ROCKS WITH RHYTHM AND ROOTS
August 23 free concert on Meetinghouse Green
Cape Ann based Deb Hardy Band will rock Meetinghouse Green on Friday, August 23, from 6.00 PM to 8.30 PM, at the eighth free concert of the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation’s legendary summer concert series.
Deb Hardy’s musicianship reflects the drama, beauty and serenity of our ocean community. Her unique style of singing and guitar playing has been described as ‘rhythmic, expressive and powerful’. Hardy and her band, including musicians, Greg Verga, Arnie Rosen, and Marc Lorah, perform rhythm and roots songs that will have concert-goers on their feet. Their high energy alternative rock, folk, blues, soul, and classical music will appeal to the most discriminating music lovers. You will hear influences as wide-ranging as Kate Bush, Yes, and Led Zeppelin.
Each week Music on Meetinghouse Green partners with a different non-profit organization to raise awareness for the services they provide to the local community. At the August 23 concert, the audience is invited to contribute a freewill donation to the Gloucester Education Foundation, a non-profit organization that creates and expands opportunities for students and teachers of the Gloucester Public School District. Gloucester-based restaurant Jalapeno’s will provide delicious Mexican fresh food for concert-goers.
The Gloucester Meetinghouse, home of the Unitarian Universalist Church, is located at the corner of Church and Middle Streets. The concert is handicapped accessible. Event parking is available on the green and at additional parking lots nearby in the Historic District. Folding chairs will be provided or bring your own beach chair or blanket. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse.
