Fair Saturday Concert: Susan Cattaneo and The Big Loud Band with openers Renée and Joe

November 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Old Sloop Coffeehouse will present Susan Cattaneo and The Big Loud Band in concert Saturday, November 30 at 7:30 pm at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.  Renée and Joe will open the show.

Susan Cattaneo is one of Boston’s most appreciated singer-songwriters. Respectful of tradition, but not bound by it, Susan blends rock, folk and blues with a healthy dose of country.  Susan’s latest album The Hammer and The Heart charted #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and yielded a #1 song on folk radio and a top 10 album of 2017.  Susan has also been teaching songwriting at the Berklee College of Music for over 15 years.  She performed all over New England with Western Mass trio The Boxcar Lilies.  Susan’s all-star band will consist of Renée Dupuis on keyboards and vocals, Jamie Walker on guitar and vocals, Richard Gates on bass, and Andrew Jones on drums.

Renée and Joe are a duo that features strong vocals, lush harmonies, imaginative arrangements, and collaborative songwriting stemming from the folk, rock, and blues idioms. Renée Dupuis and Joe Cardoza are both highly regarded musicians who are in demand for live appearances and studio recordings, and Renée is also a regular member of Susan Cattaneo’s band.
