About Dorchester
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

Singer and songwriter Roseanne Cash celebrates her acclaimed new album, The River & the Thread, a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect Roseanne to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors. “The soul and richness of the people and the music of the south resonates in a particular way for all of us. It’s a deep connection.” – Roseanne Cash “…Ms. Cash has a voice both dark and sweet, with a gentle but reliable vibrato, and she knows how to convey the quiet sting of heartache.” – The New York Times

John Oliver
John Oliver is an Emmy and Writer’s Guild Award winning writer. His HBO show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, presents a satirical look at the week in news, politics and current events. On his occasional breaks from television, John returns to his first love of stand-up and plays to sold out venues across the US. From 2006 to 2013 John was a correspondent and guest host on the multiaward winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He first came to prominence as a cutting-edge political stand up in the UK, with a string of television appearances and sold-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Having made the move to America in 2006 to work on The Daily Show, John won the Breakout Award at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007 and went on to write and star in his first hour long Comedy Central stand up special John Oliver: Terrifying Times in 2008. Such was its success that John has now hosted four seasons of his own stand up series for Comedy Central, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, featuring a hand-picked selection of his favourite comedians.

notloB Music Presents... Nate Sabat and Elise Boeur/Sumaia Jackson and Friends

Nate has played for notloB in so many bands and we have crossed paths at so many festivals and concerts (he is fast becoming my favorite acoustic bass artist) I cannot remember when we discussed doing a feature concert, I believe it may have been at the Blue Hat, Yeah! concert after he played a Norweigen mazurka that he told me of his new project....and here it is!

notloB Music Presents... Nate Sabat and Elise Boeur/Sumaia Jackson and Friends
$10 General Admission.
$8 Students
tickets soon through

Elise Boeur, violin and hardingfele
Canadian fiddler Elise Boeur ties together diverse influences with a deceptively light touch - her distinctive, silvery tone belongs to a world of its own. Following her intensive study of Norwegian traditional music at Høgskolen i Telemark, Boeur is joyfully exploring the reaches of contemporary Scandinavian folk music on violin and hardingfele.

Nate Sabat, bass
A graduate of the voice program at New York City’s renowned LaGuardia High School, Nate Sabat’s musical roots are in choral singing. However, he started playing bass just before he began at LaGuardia, and, years later, was accepted to the Berklee College of Music as an upright bass principal. There, he has made it a goal to delve into the thriving Boston acoustic music scene, inside and outside of Berklee. He has only recently began playing Scandanavian folk music, and intends to continue to pursue it, hopefully in Sweden or Norway for an extended amount of time.

Sumaia Jackson, fiddle
Boston-based fiddler, Sumaia Jackson, has roots in Scottish and Irish fiddle styles, and for the past few years has delved into the rich tradition of Appalachian Old Time and American fiddle. Throughout her years on the West Coast, Sumaia was immersed in California's diverse music scene, blending elements of Jazz, Bluegrass, Scandinavian and Celtic styles. She continues to incorporate aspects of each of these styles into her playing creating a vibrant, groovy sound.

Outpost 186 is an all-ages venue.

When: Nov 12, 2014 8 PM to Nov 12, 2014 10 PMin Cambridge, Massachusetts (Wed, 12 Nov 2014 20 )
