The Alloy Orchestra

The Alloy Orchestra, a musical trio known to some as “the Beatles of silent movie accompaniment,” perform a rare North Shore concert at the Cape Ann Community Cinema at 21 Main St. in Gloucester Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

The unconventional group will accompany the early Technicolor classic “The Black Pirate,” a swashbuckling epic that Douglas Fairbanks personally bankrolled in 1926.

The musicians are Terry Donahue on “junk,” accordion, musical saw, and vocals, Roger Miller on keyboards, and director Ken Winokur on “junk percussion” and clarinet.

Over the last two decades, they have performed hundreds of concerts all over the world. For tickets and information, visit
