9th Annual Maritime Performance Series Returns to the Calvert Marine Museum

SOLOMONS, MD – August 28, 2018 – The 9th Annual Maritime Performance Series at the Calvert Marine Museum begins on Friday, September 14. This season promises an eclectic mix of traditional music ranging from sweet harmonies to foot stomping jigs. Performances begin at 7 p.m. in the Harms Gallery (unless otherwise noted). Doors open at 6 p.m. with beer and wine for sale. Ticket prices vary per show and can be bought in advance, online, at www.bit.ly//MaritimeConcerts or at the door (cash or check only). The series is sponsored in part by Holiday Inn Solomons.

Friday, September 14 – BACK PORCH BLUES

An all-star down-home acoustic trio consisting of guitar and vocals by Eleanor Ellis, blues harmonica by Jay Summerour, and the percussion talents of Eric Selby. “Together they deliver real deal acoustic blues… just like sittin’ with friends having a jam session on the back porch.” Blues is new to the series, and we are excited about introducing these musicians to Southern Maryland. This performance is sponsored in part by a Maryland State Arts Council Maryland Touring Grant. Tickets are $20 online, $25 at the door.

Friday, September 28 - BUA

BUA is presented by the Celtic Society of Southern Maryland, Inc. With a precision and intensity that is rarely heard on this side of the Atlantic, their sound stands out among modern bands in the genre by keeping the music down the path of tradition while still being able to raise the rafters with their playing, charm with their singing, and delight with their contemporary energy. Based in Chicago, Illinois—a long-celebrated center of Irish traditional music—BUA has established itself individually and as a group in the eyes and ears of the traditional community. This performance is sponsored in part by the Ruddy Duck Brewery & Grill. Tickets are $30 at the door with advance purchase discounts available online at www.cssm.org/tickets. Performance starts at 7:30 p.m. 

Friday, October 12 – DICK HENSOLD and PATSY O’BRIEN

This performance is presented in partnership with the Celtic Society of Southern Maryland and Southern Maryland Traditional Music and Dance. Dick Hensold is the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America. For the past 20 years he has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States. Patsy O’Brien joins him on vocals and guitar. Hensold is an award-winning artist boasting four critically-acclaimed solo albums. He hosts guitar workshops all over the country. This performance is sponsored in part by the Ruddy Duck Brewery & Grill. Tickets are $20 online at www.cssm.org/tickets and $25 at the door.

Friday, October 19 – LOW LILY

This string and vocal trio explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music. Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass, to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds. Combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements, and get music that is rooted yet contemporary. Tickets are $20 online, $25 at the door.

Friday, November 16 – HONEY DEWDROPS

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are known for their tight harmonies and instrumental accompaniment that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin, and guitars. After leaving their home base of Virginia and living on the road for two years, Laura and Kagey now call Baltimore home and it’s where they wrote and recorded their fourth full-length album, Tangled Country, released May 2015. This performance is sponsored in part by a Maryland State Arts Council Maryland Touring Grant. Tickets are $15 online, $20 at the door.
