The 2018 Boston Music Award winner for “Blues Artist of the Year,” Ali McGuirk, has made a career of captivating audiences with her powerful, buttery voice and heartfelt songwriting. Her earliest years as a performer were spent earning residencies across four continents — from Santorini to Hong Kong.
In 2016, she was recognized by the Boston Globe as an “artist to hear,” along with Lake Street Dive, Haim, and other notables. In 2017, she released her first full-length album, “Slow Burn,” which was named on multiple year-end lists.
Her influences include Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Donny Hathaway, Bill Withers, Nina Simone, Sheila Jordan, Bonnie Raitt, and Janis Joplin.
The Boston Globe wrote, McGuirk is “a soul singer who evokes comparisons to Amy Winehouse, but rocks even harder.” And The Improper Bostonian noted, “When [Ali] opens her mouth, people stop and take notice, captivated by her swooping, honeyed voice.”

ABOUT ORANGE DOOR
Our fall 2018 "Fugitive at the Door" series at Orange Door Kitchen in West Acton surpassed expectations. Most evenings sold out. Great performers. Great audiences. Great amenities. We present “listening” music — by one to several performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, world music — and more.
Orange Door owners Meredith and Chris Powell have created a lovely, inviting, and intimate setting in the space — it feels like a comfy living room/kitchen. And they are very welcoming hosts.
They serve a few small plates each evening and provide a full bar including some excellent wine offerings. Orange Door is a no-cash, no-tipping venue. Please bring a credit/debit card. Gratuities are included in the menu price.
