Jazz, Folk, BLUES, World Music, and more at Orange Door Kitchen

“Fugitive at the Door” is a bi-weekly music series in West Acton Village, starting in the Fall of 2018, presented by Fugitive Productions and Orange Door Kitchen. Since the winter of 2015, Fugitive has been bringing great dance bands to The Gallery at Villageworks. Now, Fugitive is partnering with Orange Door Kitchen to present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music, possibly even a cappella. Whatever strikes our fancy — and yours.

Orange Door owners Meredith and Chris Powell have created a lovely, inviting, and intimate setting in the space that was formerly Savory Lane and The Local Table. It is totally transformed. It feels more like a comfy living room/kitchen than a commercial space. And they are very welcoming hosts.

We present “Fugitive at the Door” two Wednesdays a month. Chris and Meredith serve a few small plates and snacks each evening and providing a full bar including some excellent wine offerings. We think you will fall in love with the room and the amenities and hope that our Wednesday evening events offer a regular mid-week break for you.

Orange Door is a no cash, no tipping venue — all transactions are digital and gratuities are included in the menu price.

Chris McDermott (Jazz, Blues & Soul)
Chris is a busy guy having performed extensively in the US, Europe, and the Caribbean for more than 25 years. Possessing a unique rhythmic style, he draws from what seems to be every available musical color in the palette and has worked as a sideman and band leader with some of the best jazz, blues, and soul players in the world. He’s one of the most energetic musicians you will experience live. Chris lives for that real “in the moment” exchange with his audience, his players, and the vibrations created by all involved.

Molly Flannery & Haley Peltz (Songs from the Heart)
Composer, arranger, and keyboardist Molly Flannery is known for her distinctive touch on the piano, her melodic improvisations, and her ability to groove in jazz, latin, and Brazilian idioms. Singer/Composer Haley Peltz grew up in Lincoln and recently moved back from Brazil where she lived for several years. In 2016, she was awarded first place in the Popular Singing Competition at the São Paulo School of Music. Her Ella Fitzgerald tribute show received critical and public acclaim in São Paulo. 

Wednesday, February 27 
Laura Vecchione
(Singer/Songwriter)
From Muscle Shoals to Motown, to poignant singer/songwriter ballads, each of Laura’s songs reflects themes of resilience and hope, masterfully executed by Vecchione’s strong vocals and supported by a host of A-list session players. The Boston Globe dubbed Laura “a bluesy songstress” and proudly proclaimed, “Vecchione is all ours.” Laura has recorded with multi-Grammy award-winning producers, opened for major label artists, and has had her songs featured on national radio and television. “Laura Vecchione hails from New York, lives in Boston, and recorded in Nashville. Keep this quick bio handy to remind yourself that she’s not from Chicago, because she sounds a whole lot more South Side than Soho, Allston, or Grand Ole Opry,” wrote Rob Weir of the Valley Advocate.

Ali McGuirk (2018 Best of Boston Blues Artist)
Ali McGuirk has made a career of captivating audiences with her unique blend of hypnotic R&B grooves, folk songwriter lyricism, classic soul delivery, and a gravelly blues temperament. With a focus on lively improvisation, strong instrumentals, and her own buttery voice, her earliest years as a performer were spent earning residencies across four continents. In 2016, she was recognized on the cover of the Boston Globe Sunday Arts section as an “artist to hear,” along with Lake Street Dive, Haim, and others, by the influential Boston rock critic Steve Morse. Ali’s “Slow Burn” was in the Boston Herald's list for “Best Music of 2017” and contributed to Ali's Boston Music Award nomination for 2017’s Best New Artist and her six 2018 nominations — she won two including “2018 Best Blues Artist.”

Myanna, featuring Ken Clark & Eddie Scheer  (Very Saxy)
Back for a return engagement. In November, Myanna, Ken, and Eddie performed at Orange Door resulting in one fan banging on the producer’s chest saying, “What’s happening here? How can we have just heard this in West Acton?” One of the hottest and most soulful saxophonists in the area, Myanna plays music that mixes jazz improvisation with funky rhythms, expressive playing, and catchy tunes. Her music has been described as funky, bluesy, rootsy, and spontaneous. In years past, she performed with the all-female band Lilith, then worked with the Bill Bellamy Project, followed by Girls’ Night Out. She has been playing with local favorite The Love Dogs since the ’90s. Myanna has recorded three CDs for the Bridge City label and has won awards for best jazz artist from both the “Boston Music Awards” and “The Boston Phoenix Readers Poll.”Wednesday,
