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. A handful of critically acclaimed recordings, Positively The Blues, Barefoot Servants, Electric Factory, 2 Roads East and 360º mark Jon’s enduring love affair with the very fabric of American music. 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. Watch Jon
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. For decades, music has taken Amero around the globe, sharing stages with a wide range of artists including Wilson Pickett, Tom Rush, The Pointer Sisters, Dolly Parton, Christopher Cross, Al Stewart, Little Feat, The Guess Who, Firefall, Little River Band, Ambrosia and more. These days, Fly’s live acoustic performances are in support of his most recent solo effort “Beautiful World,” the title song being Orleans’ newest release, and one of two collaborations on the album with writing partner John Hall.

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. The Estes Boys performed in and around New England and by the mid 80’s Allen moved to Nashville TN, writing and working with Tammy Wynette, Robert Ellis Oral, Lori Morgan, and Shania Twain. After 10 years, Gloucester called him back, and in the 90’s Allen recorded with writer Frank Tedesco. This turned into Allen’s last recording, the Souls of the Sea album. Souls Of The Sea is a collection of songs about the historic seaport and fishing town of Gloucester MA and the people who live there. Watch Allen
