THE BLACK BOX presents Jamie Barrett - July 9

THE BLACK BOX, the region’s premiere concert, theater, and event venue, has announced outdoor weekend concerts throughout the month of July in the theater’s parking lot. The shows will be presented in a one hour format with two seatings at 6:30 and 8:30 pm. Tables will be socially distanced and masks will be required when patrons enter THE BLACK BOX building to access the box office, restrooms, and bar. Table groupings will be limited to six.

Jamie Barrett will take the outdoor stage on Thursday, July 9 at 7:00 pm. This concert schedule is contingent upon Reopening Massachusetts Phase 3 beginning on July 6th. The box office for this show will open when the Phase 3 start date is officially announced by Governor Baker.

Jamie resides in Franklin, MA where he has been teaching music at Jefferson Elementary School since 1999. He also teaches one day a week at Davis Thayer Elementary, and he provides private guitar instruction after school, as well. His interest in music began with a very musical family and was then furthered by piano, singing, and clarinet lessons at a young age. He later discovered the guitar and went on to play in school productions and jazz bands and began gigging in night clubs. He went on to play in several bands throughout the New England area.
