Three of the North Shore’s most beloved songwriters and performers converge for A Seaside Yuletide, a night of rootsy holiday spirit and song featuring Jon Butcher, Fly Amero and Allen Estes.
Cape Ann’s Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists comprising the legendary Boston music scene. Numerous MTV videos and hit songs comprise the underpinnings of a recording and touring career that continues today. Butcher’s signature sound and particularly his guitar work represent a skillful mix of Americana — rock, r&b, jazz and folk, all of it focused through a prism built from the blues.
Certified gold recording artist and journeyman Fly Amero embraces each and every audience with passion and intimacy. Touring for the past 13 years as a member of the classic American pop group Orleans, Fly draws from a lifetime of rootsy Americana, folk, blues and jazz influences. His well-seasoned guitar and vocal skills serve to deliver emotional original pieces like “Paint It Blue," “I Am,” and “I Don’t Know Where I End (and You Begin)” deep into the hearts of listeners everywhere.
Songwriter Allen Estes grew up in a musical family, the oldest son of professional musicians Estelle and Phil Estes in Gloucester, MA and began playing at age six. Phil packed the family up in the car and literally took to the open road for musical adventures eventually leading to the forming of the Estes Boys, Allen’s seminal band. Allen's latest recording, the "Souls of the Sea" album, is a collection of songs about the historic seaport and fishing town of Gloucester, MA and the people who live there.
