"Cecilia's Choices" LaunchedPosted on the 23 January 2013 by Notlobmusic
Where do you go to find greater-Boston arts events? There are so many choices, all with their particular limitation or drawback. Until today.
Founders Jeff Boudreau and Pam Warren think "Cecilia's Choices", a new Facebook page, is the answer. Seeing the shortcomings of other souces, Boudreau and Warren, both well-connected to the greater Boston music scene, have created a simple, unified "go to" resource anyone to share what they (and future editors who will be added**) consider to be the best live music and arts events, featuring a day or two before the event. Together and with member input, concert, recital and other performance as well as workshops, classes, gallery opening/shows and radio special information will be presented.
There is no longer a need to go to umpteen different sources. "Cecilia's Choices" will draw upon several active member-based groups* as well as many, many other sources.
Not ready to step up to that level? Simply contribute your event on the main page for consideration to be featured (and a message reminder via the page as the date draws closer), or just sit back and read the offerings. Whether as an editor, contributor or member, all are welcome aboard!
*Here are a few (a very few) of "Cecilia's Choices" many sources. In no particular order:
Boston-Area Open Mics
Celtic Music in NE
NE Country Blues
NE Hillbilly Music
Northeast Old-Time, Bluegrass and Stringband Music
Northeast House Concert Network
New England Electric Blues
Northeast Folk Dance
Community and Independent College Radio

p.s. Cecelia has a "snarky" side, too. If you can't stand "cheesy" music, you'll love "Camberville Cheese", which was inspired by a discussion on Christian McNeill's wall that began with "Mumford and Sonszzzzzzzzzzzz. Really? We can do better than this people." and is dedicated to the WMBR's annual "Cheese Patrol" program.
