WELLFLEET – Sometimes you go to see a musician and sometimes, at least on Cape Cod, the musician comes to see you.
Last Sunday, we caught the last few songs of Aaron Norcross’s set at The Pearl. As he segued from “For What It’s Worth” to “Satisfaction,” Norcross left the stage and walked through the crowd playing his guitar.
We were well situated, eating oysters at a table right next to the oyster shuckers and near many of his adoring fans, as you will hear. This was live music at its best.
Norcross writes originals, and we hope the next time we see him we are early enough to catch one.
But this was pretty darn cool and about as close up as we can get to a musician and his fans.
Plus it was The Pearl in August. We’ll recall this fondly when the snow arrives this winter.
