The next Old Sloop Coffeehouse concert will be Saturday, November 30. It will feature Boston singer-songwriter Susan Cattaneo. Susan is bringing one of her absolutely killer bands: Renée Dupuis on keyboards and vocals, Jamie Walker of The Swinging Steals on lead guitar, Richard Gates on bass, and Andrew Jones on drums.
Renée and Joe will open the proceedings.
Here is a video of Susan performing her song “Work Hard Love Harder” with a band consisting of many of the same musicians who will be at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse performance: https://youtu.be/_jvse4fxWSg
See Brooks Williams with opener Prateek at Old Sloop Coffeehouse this Friday, November 1. Brooks Williams hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks’ music is the love-child of country-blues and Americana. fRoots says, “Soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. He really rocks!” Opener Prateek has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards.

Two of our favorite performers, Cliff Eberhardt and Louise Mosrie will share the stage at Rockport’s Old Sloop, one of Cape Ann’s best listening rooms.

David Roth strikes many chords, hearts, and minds with his unique songs, offbeat observations, moving stories, sense of the hilarious, and powerful singing and subject matter. As singer, songwriter, recording artist, keynote speaker, workshop leader, and instructor, David has earned top honors at premier songwriter competitions – Kerrville (TX) and Falcon Ridge (NY) – and taken his music, experience, and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries full-time for more than two decades.
Connor Garvey is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Portland, Maine, with the amiable presence of an entertainer, the lyrical depth of a poet, and the enchantment of a storyteller.
Garvey leaves audiences uplifted and inspired through a positive message delivered in a way The Portland Press Herald says proves you can be optimistic and self-aware without being boring. His unique sandy tenor and masterful blend of rhythm and melody draw comparison to Paul Simon and contemporaries Josh Ritter and Jason Mraz. He wins song competitions. He fills rooms. But most of all he moves people.
