SOLOMONS, MD – December 1, 2021 – Ticket sales begin today for the 12th Annual Maritime Performance Series at the Calvert Marine Museum.

Friday, Jan. 28 – DIANE DALY
Diane Daly is a vocalist of moody contrasts and evocative depth. Certainly, one who cannot be pigeonholed into one particular style. Diane has spent her career exploring a world of music from the strictest classical solos to avant-garde cabaret.
Friday, Feb. 25 – CHRYSALIS
Chrysalis, featuring Jody Marshall on hammered dulcimer and piano and Jim Queen on fiddle and guitar, serves up plenty of toe-tapping fun with lilting jigs, rollicking reels, and happy hornpipes from traditions on both sides of the pond. The duo’s far-reaching musical proclivities treat audiences to a repertoire ranging from Bach to the Beatles, and even an American Songbook standard or two.
Friday, March 25 – CLAUDE BOURBON
Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that takes blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Bob Zentz is a singer, song-writer, and story-teller who is known to play dozens of instruments including the banjo, accordion and the hurdy-gurdy. His music repertoire spans the genres of folk, traditional, Celtic, and maritime music and beyond. From schools to concert halls, festivals to fairs, museums to libraries, and everywhere in between, Bob is dedicated to a life of presenting, performing and introducing traditional music and its derivatives to those who are already fans…and those unaware of its existence.
