Beverly crowds cheered Gracie Curran in 2014. Now you can see what all the cheering was about when she makes her triumphant return to Beverly for one show only -- this time with Seth Rosenbloom opening!
Don't miss your only chance to see one of the top young Blues/Soul entertainers on tour today at the most intimate, elegant listening room on Boston's North Shore!
Gracie Curran has earned her reputation for jaw dropping Blues & Soul, in every blues club and juke joint from Boston to Beale Street.
In the three years since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album "Proof of Love", the singer has been packing houses across the country, wowing audiences with her powerful voice and soul shaking delivery.
With a contagious enthusiasm and amazingly fun live show, Curran is quickly becoming one of the most exciting young entertainers on the roots scene today!
Hailed as 'the future of guitar playing', and commanding the highest respect and praise from his colleagues and audiences alike, Seth Rosenbloom brings a highly personal, inspired and expressive approach to his music. Seth's dazzling lines and singing vibrato on the guitar along with his distinctively sultry vocals result in his own interpretation of the blues.
Seth was born into a musical family in Waltham, Massachusetts. After playing violin in his earliest years and raised on a backdrop of Mozart and Beethoven, Seth took up guitar at age eleven, originally influenced by Elvis Presley and The Beatles. He soon began performing whenever he could at blues jams and solo concerts at local venues where he was able to distill and forge his own musical style and personality.
At the young age of sixteen, Seth won acceptance with a performance merit scholarship, to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. At his entrance audition, upon playing 'Glasgow Kiss' by John Petrucci, one judge declared that he had never heard such a technically clean performance of the piece. A dean's list student at Berklee, Seth developed his compositional and technical skills in both jazz and improvisational music, extensively expanding his musical vocabulary.
Seth also had some of his most inspiring and memorable formative experiences as a student during summer sessions at the Raleigh Music Academy. Coming full circle in recent years, Seth has felt highly honored to be a featured artist at that very event, teaching and performing alongside Andy Timmons, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns N' Roses) and Andy Wood (Rascal Flatts, LoCash). Seth has also been a regular at the International Musicians Summit (formerly International Guitar Summit) held annually in Durham, NC. He has been very active as a featured artist at many other performances, clinics and musical conventions throughout the country.
With a sound rooted in the blues, Seth draws inspiration from classic influences including Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as more contemporary guitarists such as Eric Gales, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Trucks. What makes Seth's performances so special is his deeply committed intensity. Combined with his engaging and sincere personality, Seth never fails to delight audiences.
2017 is an especially exciting time, with an expanded East Coast touring schedule, performances at festivals, and especially the recording of Seth's debut album.
