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.

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.

Plus Special Guests-

Bassist/Guitarist Chuck Walker is the front man for the Chuck Walker Jazz trio and Cuppa Joe, a roots, blues and rock n’ roll quartet. He is also a music educator and community music organizer.

Lynne Taylor is a singer-songwriter-pianist/bassist who has performed her wide variety of rootsy, rockin’, righteous music throughout New England for decades. With thoughtful lyrics that explore personal, political and social themes, she is a one of a kind original entertainer not to be missed!

We hope to see you there!
