Rummage Fall Sale 

October 28th at 8PM

Saturday Night in Marblehead will continue its series with a October 28th concert by acclaimed singer-songwriter and award-winning guitarist Geoff Bartley. Doors open at 7:30 and the concert begins at 8pm. Admission donation is $15 at the door. Saturday Night in Marblehead is located at the Church of St. Andrew, 135 Lafayette St. in Marblehead.
Geoff Bartley is well known in the greater Boston area for running two open mics for decades at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA.  He has done so much to promote acoustic and bluegrass music in Boston that the city of Cambridge declared February 13, 2004, to be Geoff Bartley Day. But musicians and music lovers throughout New England know that he is so much more than that. He is a finger-pick guitarist who has won national awards, including taking four prize guitars at the National Fingerpick Championships in Winfield, KS. His stellar guitar styling has been recognized by, among others, folk legend Tom Paxton, with whom Geoff has played and harmonized on many of Paxton’s tours. Besides being a world-class guitarist, Geoff is also a nationally-recognized songwriter and composer. His songs can be found in the Smithsonian Folkways collection in Washington, DC, preserving the finest music this country has to offer. One of his songs, recorded by the progressive bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters, was used in the Lionsgate film “The Loved Ones.” His songs and instrumental compositions have been heard on the History Channel, Animal Planet, the Learning Channel, the Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel, and on NOVA and Nature on PBS. It’s no wonder he’s thought by many to be the spiritual godfather of the Boston music scene.

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, 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!
