This month Outloud Open Mike @ The Beebe Estate in Melrose features folk and blues singer / songwriter Jon Waterman. This compelling local musician will light the evening afire with a feature set of his original songs and highly textural and authentic style of guitar playing. A folk balladeer drawing from a variety of traditions, Waterman captures tragedy, irony, and triumph in his musical renditions, whether playing material based on historical events or his own personal passages.
