Daisy Nell and Capt Stan, with some additional mates in their band Crabgrass, combine the songs of the sea and shore with some bluegrass standards. Daisy Nell and Stan, joined by Jack Schwartz on banjo, Dimitri Eleftherakis on bass, and Maria Wolters on dobro have conjured up a unique sound with a variety of traditional and contemporary folk sources. Always with a grain of salt, Daisy Nell and Stan serve as the main stays of the act. Maria, Dimitri, and Jack take their leads with instrumentals and vocals, along with hearty harmonies. Olivia Gale and Colin de la Barre are Meridian, a Cape Ann-based duo that specializes in both traditional and contemporary music sung in close two-part harmonies. Colin and Olivia met in the autumn of 2010 at Cameron's restaurant in Gloucester where Colin had been singing with the local sea chantey group Three Sheets to the Wind for years. When Olivia began singing with the group, the two young singers struck up a friendship, which was quickly followed by the formation of a duo once they discovered how well their voices blended together. Meridian's music ranges from nautical ballads to compositions from the British Isles to traditional Yuletide carols. Advance tickets are $10 at oldsloopcoffeehouse.org, John Tarr Store in Rockport, or The Bookstore of Gloucester. The suggested contribution AT THE DOOR ONLY is $12; $8 for seniors, $5 for juniors, and $24 for families. The performance will take place in the church's handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall. Coffee, tea, and delicious homemade desserts will be available for purchase.
