A Seth Glier CD release concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1, at The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, 86 Townsend Ave. in Boothbay Harbor.
Glier’s new album “The Coronation” is an invitation to forge a new, more beautiful world out of the current chaos. “For most of my adult life, I’ve held the belief that humanity is right around the corner from something transformative,” Glier explains. “If we could only see that our separateness is an illusion, then a future of global cooperation and interdependence would be undeniable. As the coronavirus locked down the world, I watched this long-held belief inside of me becoming a reality right before my eyes. The dolphins returned to the Venice canals, and millions of children saw the stars for the first time. I wanted this album to feel like a roadmap towards reunion in a reconnected and repairing world.”

Glier’s sixth album on MPress Records is a beautiful and powerful collection that explores an expansive range of musical styles and topics from the personal to the political. A Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Western Massachusetts, Glier has also won five Independent Music Awards. NPR describes his voice as “otherworldly” while praising him as “an engaging performer and storyteller.”

His critically acclaimed, emotionally dense catalog of work often draws upon traditional roots music, experimental instrumentation, and moody atmospheres that result in soulfully intelligent stories that can alternately fight the power and break your heart. Opera House audiences have followed Glier’s musical career from it’s early days and we celebrate the arrival of more music from Seth tonight.

Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
