BUY TICKETS HERE Guitar Night at Wellfleet Preservation Hall: An intimate evening of solo instrumental guitar with Peter Ciluzzi.
 With a distinctive, timeless sound that is both familiar and unexpected, Peter Ciluzzi's music defies easy categorization and reflects a wide range of influences including jazz, rock, bluegrass, classical, and world music. Raised in Provincetown, Ciluzzi developed an appreciation of the arts at a young age and took up guitar when he was a child. Mainly a self-taught musician, he has studied jazz and improvisation as well as classical composition and has released 2 albums of original solo guitar music on Candyrat Records - which represents more than 30 musicians from 10 countries and what is widely regarded as some of the finest guitar-based music from around the world. His performance videos have accumulated millions of views on Youtube and in the last year he had over 4 million plays on Spotify. A finalist in the 2007 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, he has toured and performed throughout the US and shared the stage with fellow guitarists such as Antoine Dufour (Canada), Pino Forastiere (Italy), and Gareth Pearson (Wales). The broad nature of his musical interests also extends into guitar design and construction; having studied guitarmaking with Charles Fox at The American School of Lutherie in Portland, OR, he started Ciluzzi Guitars in a Provincetown workshop in 2006 and has displayed at a number of exhibitions including the Montreal Guitar Show.

Inside The Pages: Mac Gatch & Tracey Lind

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 7:30 pm
Free & Open To All
Mac Gatch, a summer resident of Wellfleet since the 1960s, has recently published a history of his family Till the Break of Day: Philip Gatch and Some Descendants Through Three Centuries - from about 1720 in Maryland to 1960 in Ohio.  His ancestors were among the first converts to Methodism, whose anti-slavery convictions brought them to move from Virginia to Milford, Ohio, in 1798. In Ohio they were farmers, participants in civic life, pillars of the Methodist church, and (increasingly) earned their living as businesspeople in Cincinnati. By 1960, the farms had been embraced by urban growth, and Mac had returned to the Episcopal Church, which his great-great-great grandfather had left for the more enthusiastic Methodism two centuries earlier. Mac (more formally Milton McC. Gatch), was Academic Dean and Provost at Union Theological Seminary in New York, and also served for many years a  priest-in-charge of the seasonal Chapel of St. James the Fisherman in Wellfleet. He will talk about his book with a longtime friend—now one of his successors at the chapel—Tracey Lind, who in her off-Cape life is dean of the Episcopal Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland.

Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur present Penny's Farm

Saturday, October 8th, 2016 7:30 pm
$28 General Admission
BUY TICKETS HERE In the 1960s Jim Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur led the groundbreaking Jug Band, admired and imitated by everyone from folk and blues musicians to rockers like the Lovin’ Spoonful and the Grateful Dead, but their new album isn’t a victory lap or nostalgia trip. Back then they were exciting because they had a gift for combining a loose, good-time feel with an astonishingly high standard of musicianship, making old songs feel quirky, hip, and new – and Penny’s Farm is exciting because they still have that magic. The songs reach back to the roots of American folk music, but the performances are sparked by the interplay of two artists deeply immersed in traditional styles, who know each other well, but have distinctly different styles and temperaments: Geoff is a meticulous arranger, while Jim prefers “to find a bunch of musicians I like, work up some tunes, and just let ’er rip.” Working live in the studio with a small group drawn from some of the finest musicians on the contemporary Americana scene, they’ve made a record that perfectly captures that mix of care and energy. It feels relaxed and fun, but with a lot of living behind it – new music from artists who’ve traveled a long way since the 1960s, and never lost touch with their passion. with big thanks to the sponsors of our 2016 music series:
