About Newburyport

Local information about Newburyport, MA and the businesses that call Newburyport home including the local restaurants, real estate agents, hotels, antique shops and tourist attractions. Newburyport is on of the smallest cities in the state of Massachusetts, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful oceanside community!

The city has a strong tourist industry including a favorite destination for art lovers. Here you will find a most charming and large downtown area full of art galleries, specialty shops, historic B&B's, and terrific restaurants.

Newburyport is home to many large and gracious Federalist homes that were built by fortunes acquired by whaling and clipper ship owners living during the 19th century. Don't forget to visit Plum Island, an oceanfront wildlife refuge which also contains lovely beachfront and adorable summer homes and cottages.

Newburyport is very proud of its history and justifiably so, Newburyport staged the first tea party in opposition to England's tax on tea and it was well before the more famous one in Boston Mass. Newburyport is also proud to be the birth place of the United States Coast Guard since the first ship commissioned for the Coast guard was built here and named the frigate Massachusetts.

In the early 1960's, Newburyport used state and federal funds to launch a massive redevelopment scheme to reclaim its historic neighborhoods made of granite, cobblestones and to update their utilities such as water and sewer. At the same time in order to prepare for a profitable present and future, Newburyport built an industrial park which now houses many diversified small industries.

Many residents commute daily to Boston via Route 95 and on the commuter rail. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, but they are just as proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring. So come to Newburyport and experience the history, beauty and hospitality!

Susan Levine
Singer-songwriter Susan Levine draws inspiration from a life full of contrasts. She has been an itinerant performer, a student at Harvard, an actress in New York, a waitress in Santa Fe, a music therapist, and most recently, a mother. Her songs chronicle the emotional and physical landscapes of the in-between – the haves and have-nots, the loved and the abandoned, the sad but hopeful. A finalist in the 2008 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition, a 2008 Tri-Centric Showcase Artist at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, and a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition, the 2004 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, the 2004 Rose Garden Coffeehouse Performing Songwriter Competition, and the 2002 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Competition, she is described by Marilyn Rea Beyer (WUMB Folk Radio) as ?®? smart writer with a warm voice that can send chills down your spine.” Susan's songs are unique and memorable blends of folk, pop, Americana and country, suffused with poetic vision and sung with a distinctive voice described by Richard Fox, of WCUW FM, as "flowing and expressive, powerful yet capable of wrapping you up with warmth and tenderness." This voice, completely her own, yet often likened in its range and flexibility to Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Nanci Griffith, causes audiences to take notice; the poetry and heart in her lyrics, and the emotional investment in her performances cause audiences to really listen and come back for more. Susan's 2nd cd, Atlas (2007), produced and recorded by Tom Eaton at Thomas Eaton Recording, Newburyport, MA, was lauded by the Boston Herald: "Introspective, melodic folk-pop simply doesn? get much finer than the new CD by Newburyport?-? Levine. That rare album where a whole mind and heart is revealed."

Greg Klyma
GREG KLYMA (http://klyma.com) an old school troubadour with contemporary savvy Greg Klyma is a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and seasoned performer, bringing to every stage a catalog of material that assumes his audiences are both smart and able to laugh. His birth date puts him squarely in the middle of Generation X, but Greg is an old-school troubadour. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare young artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin' Jack. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It's the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition. 15 years into a career that has yielded seven albums, dozens of national tours, and the acclaim of folk's most prestigious reviewers, Greg's eager fans paid for his new album. Completing the online fundraising well ahead of schedule, Klyma delivers an emotionally charged blend of fan favorites from recent tours, and plenty of never-before-heard material on his eighth album, Another Man's Treasure. Long known as a passionate and largely positive populist, Klyma's new album showcases an impressively matured songwriting talent. Travelling the perilous landscape of love, Another Man's Treasure admits sadness, anger, regret and profound tenderness. Going beyond the Woody Guthrie/Mark Twain sass of recent years, Klyma shows himself navigating intimacy as a thoroughly modern man. But this blue-collar boy knows when to swallow the heartbreak, and so the album rallies with an equal measure of punky sing-alongs and bootstrap lifters.

Elizabeth Lorrey
The Rafters (pop/folk duo) and Elizabeth Lorrey (solo-acoustic rock) joined forces in September of 2013 when they opened for AMY RAY (of the Indigo Girls) as a trio. The gorgeous three-part harmonies and tight guitar/piano arrangements that resulted were way too much fun for just one show, so the trio's hitting the road this summer for a series of select dates. Fans of the Indigo Girls, Girlyman, CSNY, Civil Wars, etc., will love The Rafters & Elizabeth Lorrey! Websites: http://www.theraftersband.com http://www.elizabethlorrey.com

Wild Maple
This excellent duo features Gary Dolinsky on guitar and Trish DeCaprio on violin. Both sing, trading off lead vocals and joining for sensational harmonies. Gary's a flatpicking guitar whiz, and Trish is an expressive violinist, both flexible and incisive. The result is an appealing polished sound. Their set list included a number of excellent originals, with some pleasing covers as well. I liked their version of the Beatles' "I Will", with a contrapuntal byplay of guitar runs and pizzicato violin figures. Great fun. A minute later they had me tearing up with a plaintive ballad, then tappint goes along with a twangy number. Make no mistake, these folks are good. We'll try to get them back, I promise! -David Keevil, Acoustic Showcase Lexington, MA

Tom "Satch"Kerans
Tom “Satch” Kerans, the 2009 runner-up in the 92.5 The River Rising Star contest is a singer, songwriter and guitarist drawing on such influences as Tom Petty, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Barry and The Remains. The founder and front man of the Boston based band the Catalinas, he has opened shows for many national acts including Little Steven Van Zandt, NRBQ, Charlie Sexton and South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. In fact, Kerans opened a show for Roy Orbison four days before the legendary singer’s untimely death. Kerans has steadily garnered national and local press; David Mead, in the September October (2009) issue of American Songwriter, declared “Satch Kerans is doing his damndest to preserve what seems to have always worked: stories about people in conflict set to familiar melodies and arrangements... Kerans doesn’t stray too far from any previously beaten paths, but a certain authenticity in his delivery makes you like him for it all the more. You really wouldn’t want him to be any other way”. In a recent feature story that ran in the Boston Globe music critic Jonathan Perry wrote, “years after settling into an entirely different identity and new set of priorities - reemerges with some of the best songs he's ever written... nodded in sound and temperament to his longtime heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, as well as ex-Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn and Mark Knopfler. At the collection's core was a clutch of sturdy melodies and classic pop structures”. Kerans, who has garnered extensive airplay on Boston radio stations including WXRV (The River) WAAF and WUMB. is currently working on his fifth solo CD. Catch him at a venue near you!

NHS Class of 2009 Five Year Reunion

Hey y'all!

Please join your fellow '09ers for our first class reunion the night after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 28th. The reunion will be held at the brand spankin' new Nixs Ten Center in downtown Newburyport, from 7-10pm.

Crazy to think, but it’s been more than 5 years since we stumbled across the grass of World War Memorial Stadium to receive our hard-earned diplomas. Only a short time later, it truly is impressive how far we’ve come. Whether insert ‘09er here is hunkered-down find their way in the business world, studying from the bounds of our hometown, gracing the big screen of a theater near you or working hard to figure it out… we all have reason to celebrate!

Your $09 ticket price (+fees, sorry) includes open bar from 7-9pm, lots of tasty food to munch on, entertainment from a surprise musical guest, and the overall good vibes that come from being around such a rad group of ’09 grads. We've aimed to make this reunion as cool and (sometimes) classy as the NHS Class of 2009 is itself so no, you won't be expected to wear a nametag with your current life stage.  That being said, please limit guests to ‘09ers only if possibleSpace is limited.

Please come celebrate where the lives of ’09 have gone so far and where we’re going next! Can’t wait to see you there!

Holiday Meshugas Ten solo performances in a holiday package
Ongoing Holiday Meshugas Holiday: (noun) hol.i.day; legal day off, holy day, same as vacation. Meshugas: (Yiddish) meh.shoo.gaas/meh.shi.gaas; craziness, madness. TASN's 2013 production of Holiday Meshugas was so successful that we were inspired to pursue some Ongoing Holiday Meshugas and present our 2014 seasonal production. These are stories born from the hopes, dreams, memories and expectations that come with the winter holidays. From sublime grace to the most absurdly funny, these pieces run the full gamut of holiday emotions. Some are born from memory; others have sprung from the writers' imaginations. Performed as solo acts, each tale takes us inside the heart of an individual as he or she navigates the turbulence of holiday cheer. We explore the deeply sentimental and the more jaded and ironic aspects of how we cope during the holidays. These divergent accounts combine to remind us that there is a story behind every expression we encounter during the season of good cheer, no matter on the street, in the Mall, or in our living rooms. Or perhaps even in historic Aremethea. Share with us this chance to honor the elephant in the room as we approach the holidays. These monologues are testimony to the deep currents that rise to the surface in every individual at holiday time, which we all try to glaze over for fear of being the buzz kill in the room.
