PROVINCETOWN -  Provincetown singer-songwriter Anne Stott will be the featured performer tonight at the popular Monday night Coffeehouse at the Mews, at the Mews Restaurant and Cafe, 429 Commercial St., Provincetown.

Stott will accompany herself on guitar, performing a set of original material including many songs written in Provincetown and available on her latest album, "Pennsylvania." Following her appearance at the Mews, Stott will perform a show at Furey's Cafe in Lowell on Jan. 26 before returning to writing new material until the spring.

"Winters in Provincetown are the best place to write. There are no distractions and the light is magical, so the time and atmosphere support new ideas," Stott says.

2012 is looking to be a busy year for Stott. An April northeast tour is in the works with a group of bands that came together through what could have been a negative experience. "We were all scammed by the same person claiming to be a PR agent for musicians. When I figured out I'd been scammed, I was so mad I started emailing every artist that this person had claimed to represent, even though I'd never met any of them. As we all shared our stories, we decided that we could play together and create more buzz for ourselves than we could have gotten through this one rep," says Stott, who will share the stage with Baby Driver (Boston), Amber Blues (New Jersey) and The Mike Montrey Band (New Jersey), to name a few. More touring is in the works for the summer season. By the fall, Stott plans to be back in the studio, with a new album slated to be released in early 2013.

Stott has racked up four summer seasons of playing the streets in Provincetown, as well as playing almost every venue in town.

"I love that my first show of the year is in Provincetown. Since most of the songs I perform were written here, it's a great start to the year," she says.
