Quentin Callewaert opening for Edgar Winter at The Larcom, October 2016

GIMMELIVE presents a Revolutionary Night Out

Looking for inspiration? Hope? Come to 9 Wallis on Saturday, February 18th. Join YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder as she shares stories and photos from her 12,000-mile journey "through a new America," chronicled in her new book The Revolution Where You Live. Meet Sarah after her presentation and she'll sign her new book, which will be made available for sale courtesy of Cabot Street Books & Cards.

The Revolution Where You Live tells the story of Sarah's solo road trip around the United States, seeking out the people who are making change happen--change that is deep enough to transform the crises of our time into opportunities for new ways of life that are more sustainable and just.

Then enjoy music by one of the North Shore's top rising stars, Quentin Callewaert -- a sixteen-year-old guitar prodigy (with an excellent voice) whom you may have seen when we had him open for Edgar Winter back in October.

Engage in the future of America and the future of music -- all in one revolutionary night out!

Looking for hope? Here's where to find it. An inspiring account of the grassroots leaders throughout the United States...
Van Jones, CNN cohost, author, and activist
The Revolution Where You Live couldn't have come at a better time. If Woody Guthrie had penned a book to go along with 'This Land Is Your Land,' it might have read like this.
David Bornstein, New York Times columnist
Jump into Sarah van Gelder's camper, and you’ll see our country anew . . . just the book Americans need right now.
Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet

See Sarah's full bio here.


Sixteen-year-old Massachusetts native Quentin Callewaert has been playing guitar since he was nine. He played his first concert when he was ten and has played at many events and venues since then. Despite his young age, he has already shared the stage with many great guitarists such as Stephen Bennett, Trace Bundy and Tommy Emmanuel. Lyle Lovett saw one of his videos and was so impressed that he invited Quentin to meet him when he played on Cape Cod a few years ago. They have met a few times since and it was Lyle who encouraged Quentin to start singing.

After presenting concerts at Beverly's Larcom Theatre since early 2013, we expanded to 9 Wallis and have transformed it into Beverly's most intimate, elegant listening room -- fully air conditioned with comfortable show seating at tables plus food & beverage service, including wine, craft beers and specialty cocktails.

We can book world-class entertainment, including national touring artists, for your event. Our stage, with state-of-the-art sound and lighting plus Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) 4K Video, can accommodate any performance or presentation.
