These weekly concerts are presented as part of the city-wide Culture Splash, an event series where Gloucester’s two cultural districts, Rocky Neck Cultural District and Harbortown Cultural District, join forces to celebrate and promote the local vibrant cultural organizations, creative groups and individuals, galleries, artists and non-profits.
CAM’s Courtyard Concerts feature local and regional musicians whose music ranges from Latin tunes to pop reinventions, acoustic folk to rock music, and chamber music to bluegrass. The Museum will be open with free admission during the concerts, although there will be no admission to Edward Hopper & Cape Ann. The concerts will be cancelled if there is rain.

About the Musicians
Hayley Reardon is a critically acclaimed folk, pop singer/songwriter and a storyteller based on Cape Ann. The songstress has spent the past 5 years carrying her songs and guitar all over the globe — gathering experiences, inspirations, and soulful connections along the way. The artist masterfully channels her colorful stories through music, capturing even the most subtle nuances of the human experience with a striking clarity.
Reardon recently made a splash with her single, “Losing From Within,” grabbing the attention of Spotify Editorial Playlists like Fresh Folk, Folk Pop, Morning Coffee, and Today’s Singer/Songwriters. Her latest EP, In The Good Light (June 2022), was recorded in Barcelona with Catalan collaborators Pau Figueres (one of Spain’s finest classical guitarists) and Aniol Bestit Collellmir (recording engineer) at The Sound of Wood Studio. The EP embodies Reardon’s essence with a kiss of Spanish flair on certain tracks. The artist discovered a new piece of home in Spain while recording the EP, “It was amazing to travel across the world and work with people who were essentially strangers from an entirely different culture,” she says, “and feel so deeply and effortlessly understood by them.” Her follow up EP entitled Changes is due for release in July of 2023.
Hayley, along with Zane Christopher who performed on August 3, was the first-place winner at the Gloucester 400+ Anniversary’s Singer-Songwriter series at Machaca, which took place in February and March 2023. The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to host him as part of the ongoing events around the 400+ Anniversary.
