SATURDAY NIGHT IN MARBLEHEAD
RESUMES SEPTEMBER 16, 8 pm
Saturday Night in Marblehead will kick off a new season with a special September 16 concert by author and superb singer-songwriter Scott Alarik. Lincoln Gray will be the opening act.
For the past 25 years, Alarik has been arguably the most prolific and influential folk music writer in the country, covering folk for the Boston Globe, contributing regularly to public radio (including seven years as correspondent for the national news show Here and Now), and writing for many national magazines, including Sing Out, Billboard, and Performing Songwriter. Both Deep Community, his nonfiction chronicle of the folk underground, and his novel Revival were published to widespread acclaim. Alarik currently creates and hosts WUMB's weekly Folktales program.
The only downside of Scott's success as a writer and radio personality is that too few people (most of whom live in his native Midwest) are aware that he is one of the best (and funniest) singer-songwriters performing today. Garrison Keillor wrote of him, “I’ve rarely seen an audience in such a good mood as when he’s just been there.”
We are delighted to resume our concert series with his wonderful show, and to have the young singer-songwriter Lincoln Gray open for him.
Doors open at 7:30 pm. Tickets--suggested donation $15--are available at the door.

Refugee Immigration Ministry
The Church of St. Andrew, Temple Emanu-el, and Old North Church are working with RIM (Refugee Immigration Ministry) to support a young mother and her toddler daughter who have immigrated to the area from Latin America.
Raising sufficient funds in support is our biggest challenge; contributions (big or small) are always appreciated. You can make contributions through a new GoFundMe page, gofundme.com/welcome-the-stranger. In addition, we are always looking for additional volunteers to help with acculturation, child care, health care visits, and loving and emotional support.
Affordable housing is the biggest challenge, so if anyone knows has an available apartment or needs a house sitter, please notify Steve Hahn or anyone else on the RIM team.
If you have not yet made your pledge to St. Andrew's,
please do so soon. Thank you!
