The museum brings musicians both local and from around the country to share their music.
During January – April, the First Free Friday Concert Series offers a wide variety of performances.
2013 Maritime Performance Series
In its fourth season, the Maritime Performance Series features three performances showcasing accomplished musicians performing in a traditional acoustic style. Performances take place in the exhibition building auditorium starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and sold only at the door, cash or check. No advance ticket sales. Starting at 6 p.m. wine and beer will be available for sale, and "lite bites" prepared by Lotus Kitchen. Feel free to picnic at our tables overlooking Back Creek before the concert.
Friday, June 28: Grey Larsen and Cindy Kallet. Grey is one of America's finest players of the Irish flute and tin whistle, as well as an accomplished singer and concertina, fiddle, piano, and harmonium player. Cindy Kallet is a superb singer, guitarist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. As composers, each has contributed to the unique tapestry of contemporary folk and world music as it exists and flourishes in America today. Together, they weave songs and tunes of vibrant color and rich texture.
Saturday, July 27: Pyrates Royale. Pyrates Royale have been "creating music and mayhem since 1986." A favorite at the Southern Maryland Celtic Festival, when they will board the stage with their rollicking, bawdy tunes you will definitely want to be on deck with grog glass firmly at the ready.
Friday, August 23: John Cronin and Mac Walter. Returning to the Calvert Marine Museum for their fourth performance, cousins John Cronin and Mac Walter bring a combined acoustic fingerstyle virtuosity that is amazing to see. Both are talented in their own right but when they play together, the synergy and gorgeous harmonies they project always leave an audience on their feet and wanting more. We are delighted to bring these talented cousins back to Solomons for this series.
