NEW LOCAL HISTORY BOOK FEATURING FLAG PONDS NOW AVAILABLE

Another piece of Southern Maryland's almost forgotten history has been preserved in a new publication, Fishlighters - The Story of the Vanished Commercial Fishery at Flag Ponds, Chesapeake Bay, Calvert County, Maryland. Written by author Harry Knott and published jointly by the Battle Creek Nature Education Society and the Calvert Marine Museum, the book revisits Flag Ponds during the time when it was the center of one of the state's most active commercial fisheries.

From approximately 1900 to 1960, springtime brought succeeding generations of watermen, mainly from Maryland's Eastern Shore, to Flag Ponds where they established temporary homes. Here they lived during the fishing season, working alongside local families, while harvesting their pound nets.

For Fishlighters, author Harry Knott, a part-time ranger at Flag Ponds Nature Park, spent many hours gathering personal accounts, largely through interviews with retired watermen. The 110-page illustrated book was funded by the Maryland Historical Trust and the Battle Creek Nature Education Society. It is available for $8.95 plus postage from the Calvert Marine Museum and Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Sanctuary. It is also available at the Flag Ponds Nature Park.

For more information on the book and Calvert Marine Museum, please call 410-326-2042 or visit the museum's website at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com. For information on Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Sanctuary, please call 410-535-5327 or Flag Ponds Nature Park, call 410-535-5327.

ROCKERS BILL KIRCHEN AND TOO MUCH FUN TO HOST CONCERT AT CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM

On Saturday, October 26, Ralph's Dodge-Jeep presents Waterside 2002: An energetic evening with American Roots artists Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun in the Calvert Marine Museum auditorium in Solomons, Maryland. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $13 for CMM Members, and are available beginning October 11 in the Calvert Marine Museum Store or through phone charge at 410-326-2042 x 16, 17, or 18.

A Titan of the Telecaster guitar (Guitar Player magazine, May 1998), Bill Kirchen celebrates an American musical tradition where country music draws upon its origins of the blues and bluegrass, and in the Western swing of Texas and California honky tonks. Known for his incredible fluency in the tradition of American electric guitar, Kirchen performs with an energy reminiscent of guitar legends spanning a half-century. His latest CD, " Hot Rod Lincoln-Live," extends the brilliance of legends like James Burton and Merle Travis into the nineties. Along with his work as a vocalist and lead guitarist for Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, Kirchen has recorded and performed with music-greats like Gene Vincent, Danny Gatton, Emmylou Harris, and Elvis Costello.

In 1998, Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun swept the Washington Area Music Awards, bringing home five WAMMIES, including Musician and Artist of the Year. Performances at New York's Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and Wolf Trap continue to solidify Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun's popularity throughout the Eastern US.

Bill Kirchen released Tied to the Wheel in 2001, and reached a space of rarified air that very few pickers can attain. It's music that fits the lanky guitarist like a pair of well-worn boots. This is the music that he was born to make: roots/rock heavily steeped in traditional country music, honky-tonk, western swing, nitro-fueled rock 'n' roll and truck-driving songs. Tied to the Wheel is his most fully realized album to date, a perfect mixture of great covers and cool originals, all powered by his amazing fretwork.

Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun appear at the Calvert Marine Museum on October 26. Sponsors for Waterside 2002 are Ralph's Dodge-Jeep; Cumberland & Erly, LLC; Williams Corporation; Coors, Coors Light, and Killian's; Dean Lumber & Supply Company; RadioShack- Prince Frederick/Dunkirk/Charlotte Hall; Solomons Landing; Papa John's Pizza; DM Group; WKIK Country 102.9; Star 98; Mom's in the Kitchen Catering; Southern Maryland Newspapers; Bay Weekly; Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative; Main Message Center; Comcast; and the Holiday Inn Select Solomons.

CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM PRESENTS
CALVERT CLIFFS LECTURE IN OCTOBER

On Saturday, October 19, the Calvert Marine Museum Fossil Club hosts the free lecture, "Emergence and the Origin of Life (What the Calvert Cliffs Can Teach Us)," at 2:30 p.m. in the museum's auditorium. Presented by Dr. Robert Hazen of the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical Laboratory and George Mason University, the lecture examines the origin, evolution, and distribution of life in the universe.

Using the scientific method in the laboratory to tackle life's origin is a daunting challenge. The new field of emergence - the study of complex systems that arise through the interaction of many components - provides a powerful framework for that search. Simple emergent phenomena observed during walks along the cliffs of Calvert County are pointing towards a deeper understanding of emergent phenomena, including the most wonderful emergent property of all - life.

Recently named Mineralogical Society of America's Distinguished Lecturer for 2002-2003, Dr. Hazen is the author of more than 300 articles and 20 books, including the best-selling, Science Matters. In addition to numerous radio and television appearances,
Dr. Hazen recently recorded The Joy of Science, a 60-lecture video course produced by The Teaching Company.

"Emergence and the Origin of Life (What the Calvert Cliffs Can Teach Us)," is sponsored by the Clarissa and Lincoln Dryden Endowment for Paleontology. For more information, please contact Dr. Stephen Godfrey at 410-326-2042 x 28. For information on the Calvert Marine Museum, please call 410-326-2042 or visit the museum's website at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.

CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH'S HISTORIC VOYAGE TO BE RECREATED AT CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM

On Monday, July 15, enjoy a visual journey around the Chesapeake Bay as Captain John Smith's 1608 voyage is recreated. Beginning at 7:00 p.m., Susan Schmidt of Beaufort, North Carolina will take guests on a trip through time as part of her research for a book celebrating the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, Virginia. The presentation is free.

Captain John Smith (1580-1631) of Willoughby in Lincolnshire by the young age of 24 years already had served with brilliance in the Dutch Wars and in the Near East. He escaped his Turkish captors and returned to England by 1604. While there, he became interested in the newly chartered Virginia Company and made arrangements to be among the first settlers in 1606.

Due to the Jealousies of the leaders of the first settlers, Smith arrived at Jamestowne in chains. Upon opening the sealed box of instructions from the Virginia Company, Smith learned he was to be a member of the Council of the Colony.

His resourcefulness and energies proved more and more valuable to the colonists, until he was singled out as the leader of all at Jamestowne. He explored the territory in and around Chesapeake Bay, traded with the Indians for food, enforced order and work among the settlers, and probably saved Jamestowne Colony from complete extinction. Time proved his firm actions correct. Of the 500 settlers he left at Jamestowne when he returned to England, late in 1609, only 60 settlers were found alive when the new leaders arrived from Bermuda.

Having quarreled with the Virginia Company, Smith sailed to New England in 1614 and mapped the coast from Penobscot Bay to Cape Cod. In 1615, he again sailed for New England but was forced by violent storms to return to England. For all his hopes for the Plymouth Company, he never saw America again.

For more information on this historical presentation by Captain Schmidt, please contact Karen Stone at 410-326-2042 x 32 or email at stoneke@co.cal.md.us. For information on Calvert Marine Museum, call 410-326-2042 or visit the museum online at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.

CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM PRESENTS LIVING HISTORY PROGRAM:
"ROSALIE OF RIVERSDALE" - A ONE-WOMAN SHOW

Watch the War of 1812 come alive on June 17, as Calvert Marine Museum presents "Rosalie of Riversdale," a one-woman show by Mary Ann Jung. Beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the museum auditorium, the program takes you back in time through the eyes of Rosalie Calvert who ran two Maryland plantations. Admission is free and no advance reservations required.

Come meet Rosalie Stier Calvert, the remarkable Mistress of Riversdale Plantation near Bladensburg, Maryland. Rosalie fled to America with her wealthy Belgian family as a teenager to escape the Napoleonic wars. In 1799, she married George Calvert of the founding family of Maryland, and raised nine children amidst the turmoil of the War of 1812. Learn what life was like on a Maryland plantation and the dramatic stories of the Battle of Bladensburg, the Burning of Washington, and the Star-Spangled Banner from this unusual businesswoman who refused to let society's strictures against women confine her.

Appearing on television and newspapers throughout the world, Mary Ann Jung has deftly combined her degree in British History and acting ability to recreate some of history's most fascinating women. A nineteen-year performer of the Maryland Renaissance Festival, Jung has received numerous recognition for her work, including a 1997 nomination as one of Maryland's top Women in the Arts, and a 1998 citation from the Mayor of Baltimore for her work as Director of Family Performance and Street Theater at ArtScape.

Jung researches and writes her own programs, and performs in the authentic costumes, accents, and attitudes for her characters' time periods. Performing for nine years in the Mid-Atlantic region, her shows have been featured at the National Theatre of Washington, Port Discovery Children's Museum, and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

"Rosalie of Riversdale" is funded by the Maryland State Arts Council. For more information, please contact Karen Stone at 410-326-2042 x 32, or email at stoneke@co.cal.md.us. For information on the Calvert Marine Museum, call 410-326-2042 or visit the CMM website at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.

CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM TO HOST "AN AFTERNOON OF MUSIC WITH BOB ZENTZ"
SONGS OF THE CHESAPEAKE

On June 16, Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) presents, "An Afternoon of Music With Bob Zentz" - Songs of the Chesapeake, at 3:00 p.m. in the auditorium. Tickets are $7.00 and $5.00 for CMM members, and are available at the door or in advance in the Education Department.

Songs of the Chesapeake is a musical celebration of the diverse life-forms that inhabit its waters and shorelines. From the Shipyards of the Elizabeth, to the Mouth of the Susquehanna, - we find the work songs, ballads, blues, and dance tunes of the watermen and dock workers, mixing with the chanteys and forebitters of the deepwater sailors, and rolling out into the Atlantic and world with flavors and scents that are distinctly "Chesapeake"!

Playing a variety of folk instruments, Zentz will delight guests with both traditional and contemporary songs, such as "Ol' Jim River," "Friends and Neighbors," "This Ol' Bay," "Shenandoah," and "Roseanna," - illustrating the varied cultures that live and work along and upon the Bay. The program will also feature songs about the environment - how it affects us, and how we affect it!

Bringing thirty years of performing experience to the stage, Bob Zentz has spent time as a teacher, instrument-builder, broadcaster, sailor, and recording artist. Playing dozens of instruments, he builds his performances around a variety of themes. Zentz calls these "informances," because an audience learns, becomes involved, and is entertained through history, humanity, humor, and musicianship.

Scotland's newspaper, The SCOTSMAN, said it best, "Zentz has it all...a bag of strikingly attractive songs...a pleasing voice...and mastery of a variety of stringed things."

"An Afternoon of Music with Bob Zentz" is part of the Seasons of the Sailor program. For more information, please contact Karen Stone at 410-326-2042 x 32, or email her at stoneke@co.cal.md.us.

COMING TO CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM

On Sunday, February 24, Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) welcomes storyteller Bob Smith as he portrays Benjamin Banneker, and recalls stories of growing up on a farm, becoming an astronomer, and an inventor. Beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the museum auditorium, this free program is suitable for all ages.

Raised in Baltimore, Bob Smith developed an acting interest in grade school. During his career, he has worked with the Arena Players, Center Stage; network television; two nationally syndicated series: Consumer Survival Kit and Evening Magazine; and the internationally known American Historical Theater in their "Living History" presentations. Since 1986, Smith has been actively involved with Young Audiences of Maryland, most recently in the creation of the living history program, "Paul Laurence Dunbar: From Dawn to Sunset," which he wrote.

At Calvert Marine Museum, Smith will portray Benjamin Banneker, America's first black man of science.

BLUES ARTIST DEANNA BOGART TO PERFORM AT CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM

Ralph's Dodge-Jeep presents Waterside 2002: An energetic evening with Blues Artist Deanna Bogart on Saturday, February 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Calvert Marine Museum auditorium. Tickets are available beginning January 25 at the Museum Store or through phone charge at 410-326-2042, extension 16, 17, or 18. Tickets are $16.00.

With her piano, saxophone, and band in tow, Deanna Bogart proves her mettle with an honest, entertaining, energy-to-spare show. Deanna's distinguished hybridized blues style was assimilated from many bands in the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area including Cowboy Jazz from 1981-1986 and later with Root Boy Slim's band, Capitol Offense. In 1990, Bogart's first solo release, "Out To Get You," captured Best R & B album at NAIRD and a Billboard Merit Award for the jazz instrumental featuring Danny Gatton. She has since released "Crossing Borders," and "New Address," and has earned 16 WAMMIES (Washington Area Music Awards). Bogart's latest release, "The Great Unknown" is steeped in songs of life and love told with easy-to-relate to lyrics. Bogart's strong performances give the songs a musical substance and maturity. A new CD is targeted for a late spring release. The Washington Post may have best described Deanna Bogart with three words, "Luster, Sophistication, and Soul." Her live performances are ones you don't want to miss. She's been the highlight of many festivals, including opening for the "Godfather of Soul," James Brown at CMM in September 2001.

"The goal when we play live," says Bogart, "is to create a fusion with blues and boogie genuinely at the core."

Sponsors for Waterside 2002 are Ralph's Dodge-Jeep; Cumberland & Erly, LLC; Solomons Landing; Coors, Coors Light, and Killians (Bozick Distributors); Century 21; RadioShack - Charlotte Hall, Dunkirk, and Prince Frederick; Colonial Printing; Holiday Inn; Bay Weekly; Comcast; Main Message Center; Southern Maryland Newspapers; SMECO; 98.3 Star FM; WKIK 102.9; and Mom's in the Kitchen Catering.
