Sasho Zver

NOTE: This event has been canceled due to weather warnings.

At the age of 5, instead of getting a clarinet—they were sold-out at the local music store—Sasho Zver got his first guitar and has had it in hand ever since, performing his first gig at the age of 9. His career spans over 20 years and includes performances in his native land of Slovenia as well as internationally in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Hungary, to name a few.

In 2007, Zver performed at the famous Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention in Nashville, where he became friends with some of the best pickers in the world. Soon after, he moved to the States to pursue his career as a guitar player and singer-songwriter.

Zver is a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music with a major in guitar and mandolin performance. Under the guidance of guitar greats such as Larry Baione, Guy Van Duser, Mick Goodrick, and Joe Rogers, Zver achieved new heights in his acoustic guitar fingerstyle playing. "Very inventive" was the term used most by his teacher and friend John McGann.

He has released two albums of acoustic guitar instrumentals so far, with a third one in the making that will feature Zver's original songs with a full band. He continues to perform around the New England area and is involved with the Raising the Blues charitable organization as a performer, music instructor, and public speaker.

The best way to experience Zver's music is to catch him live. Every show he plays is filled with the energy of rock 'n' roll and the tenderness of a soul ballad. An array of emotions!

John Waters

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas-obsessed, legendary filmmaker and raconteur John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) rides into town on his sleigh full of smut-spreading Yuletide cheer with his critically acclaimed one-man show, A John Waters Christmas. Putting the X in Xmas, Waters's rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes traditional archetypes as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of true-crime holiday horror stories.
