Featuring: The SpaceHeaters, Little Malcolm aka Dr. Feelgood; Lucky LerouxHeaters horizontal grid sm

The SpaceHeaters are an eclectic group of musicians who have been friends even longer than they have been bandmates. Known for their diverse and far ranging musical interests, the Heaters blend Rock, R&B, Soul, Funk and Folk Rock sensibilities to create a musical tapestry that is highly listenable and decidedly danceable.

Also appearing: New Orleans style pianist and guitarist Malcolm Carnwath aka Dr. Feelgood, first inspired by hanging out at Lockers a music shop in Philidelphia, where all the reigning folk stars of the day played, from Mississippi John Hurt sonny terry and Brownie McGhee, Dave Van Ronk. He moved to Newburyport in 76 where he headed up the Blues band Little Malcolm and the Mal FUNK Shuns for 30 years.

Little Malcolm the Piano ManIMG_3770

British born singer-songwriter-guitarist Lucian Parkin, aka Lucky Leroux, cut his chops as a busker, playing on the streets and clubs of Canada coast to coast. His style ranges from folk to blues to jazz and his lyrics are chock full of social and political wit and witticism. As the co-founder and artistic director of Imagine Studios he has supported and fostered the musical community spirit in the greater Newburyport area for decades.

We hope to see you there!
