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

“Fugitive at the Door” is a music series in West Acton Village presented by Fugitive Productions and Orange Door Kitchen. Since the winter of 2015, Fugitive has been producing music events at various venues in the western ‘burbs. In 2018, Fugitive partnered with Orange Door Kitchen to present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music, flamenco, and more — 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” on Wednesday evenings. 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.

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.”

special Monday night performance

Monday, June 3

Join “flamenco phenom” (Boston Globe) Juanito Pascual at Orange Door Kitchen in West Acton for an intimate, rare solo performance. Juanito is an internationally recognized guitarist whose sound is an organic blend of masterful traditional and contemporary flamenco with influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. Recent highlights include a performance at TEDx Nashville, an international tour with acclaimed Flamenco icon Jorge Pardo, and performances for a number of film scores in LA.

He is recognized in both Spain and the U.S. as a unique and creative flamenco and jazz performer. He has been featured in special events including concerts hosted by Jane Goodall in Panama, on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, and as a guest on National Public Radio’s “The World.” In 2009, Juanito made his on-screen debut alongside Steve Martin and Andy Garcia in the 2009 film “Pink Panther 2.” He continued his film score work on a number of projects, including the 2016 Netflix biopic based on the life of Pope Francis, “Call Me Francis.”

“Juanito combines vivid colors, a rich imagination and a yearning, never-satisfied mastery of his art.”
—Steve Morse, Boston Globe writer; Billboard and Rolling Stone contributor

“One of the hottest flamenco guitarists to emerge in recent years.”
— NPR’s Here and Now
