Cape Ann couldn’t be more proud of these rising stars who share their exceptional talent in an evening of unforgettable jazz. Rhiannon Hurst earned some serious respect in the jazz world even before she graduated high school. She won 2nd place in the Berklee International High School Jazz Singer’s Showcase and was one of four graduating seniors to receive the Excellence in Music Award from the Massachusetts Music Educators Association. She was the recipient of a prestigious 2021 National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) award in jazz voice for her caliber of artistic achievement. Her professional engagements have ranged from Boston’s Symphony Hall and the State Room to the North Shore’s favorite restaurants.
Steve Lacey’s first album, To The Ocean, is sure to take his music to new heights. His repertoire digs deep into the American Songbook with a fresh look at favorites by Sinatra, Fitzgerald, Holiday, and Porter. And he is equally at home with the best of the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, Pete Seeger, and Bob Marley. Lacey is in demand both as a solo finger-style jazz guitarist and as a regular with numerous groups. You’ll find him this summer at The Studio, Lobsta Land, Short and Main, CK Pearl, and The Barrelman.
