Saturday, January 27 from 12:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

North Shore Shelter Fest is an all day music festival at FBC to benefit Harborlight Community Partners, the North Shore's largest affordable housing provider and advocate. General admission of $10 gets you full day access-- and all money goes to the cause! Food provided by A&B Burger from 3-7pm. Parking is municipal. Lots located between Cabot and Rantoul.

The headliner for North Shore Shelter Fest is the Evan Goodrow Band . Evan Goodrow is a singer-songwriter-guitarist who performs locally, nationally and internationally. He has released 11 studio albums and 3 live albums of soul, funk, blues, rock, and R&B. A Boston native, Goodrow got his start playing jazz guitar and singing acoustic folk music in coffee houses, more than a decade ago.

North Shore Shelter Fest will feature a day of musical entertainment from local and regional artists, including solo acoustic performers and some of the North Shore’s favorite bands. Among them:

  • Beverly based Dreamtigers who offer a creative blend of indie rock from their 2014 album “Wishing Well” and other original material.
  • The Tree House Charlatans, an eclectic Gloucester-based band that features traditional instruments, a musical saw and a didgeridoo—described by band founder Matt Natti as his “Australian kazoo”—among some of the more unusual instruments onstage.
  • Hailing from nearby Boxford and Ipswich, The Band Next Door will deliver a fun set of rock and soul.
  • The popular North Shore band, Sweet Escape, brings their mix of originals and covers that blend the essence of classic-rock favorites with inspiration from some of America’s finest woman-fronted country rock and straight-ahead guitar-driven sounds.
  • Boxford native Evan Jamieson is a multi-instrumentalist with one of the finest singing voices in the Boston area. He will deliver a mix of music that he has written--and some of his own personal favorite popular songs from which many have drawn inspiration.
  • The day’s performances will also include a set from our very own Sarah Schuyler and local musical talent Aisha.
