During the summer, enjoy free concerts in the Cape Ann Museum Courtyard on Thursdays from 5:30-7:00 pm. Offered as part of the city-wide Culture Splash, the Courtyard Concerts feature local and regional musicians whose music ranges from Latin tunes to pop reinventions, acoustic folk to rock music, and chamber music to bluegrass. The Museum will be open with free admission during the concerts. The concerts will be cancelled if there is rain.
Treehouse Quintet, the new rendition of Lanesville’s own Treehouse Charlatans, started with a bluegrass base but has grown to include folk melodies, more didgeridoo doodling, and jazz instrumentals. This five-piece band combines old-time favorites with contemporary hits and original music to get you tapping your feet to all sorts of tunes. Treehouse Quintet features Matt Natti (didgeridoo, saw, washboard, vocals), Alex MacLeod (violin, banjo, guitar, dobro, vocals), Matt Lefebvre (bass, guitar), Chris Wagner (guitar, piano, vocals), and Miranda Aisling (piano, guitar, vocals).
