PLEASE BRING A LAWN CHAIR!
July 5th – Calico Jack
Calico Jack is the dynamic folk duo of Janie Meneely and Paul DiBlasi, whose music celebrates the people, places and history of the Chesapeake. Janie’s strong regional roots have led her to develop a hefty list of Bay-inspired songs that trace the history of the oyster industry or capture the tales told round a country store liar’s bench, but her ditties are just as apt to poke fun at time-honored traditions. Calico Jack is eelgrass at its best.
July 12th – Geoff Kaufman
Songs of the sea, songs of the earth, songs of the heart and the spirit-all of these are in Geoff Kaufman’s ditty bag. Ancient ballads, work songs, and songs of love; poignant songs of people in struggle, humorous glimpses of human foibles, and insights into history-all of these are likely to be woven into one of Geoff’s concerts. In this age of electronic overload and passive media pabulum, Geoff likes to stress the “live” in live performance, promoting participation, be it by voice or heart or mind.
July 19th – Tom McHugh
Tom has been a musician all of his life – singing, playing banjo, blues harp, Native American flute, and a mean kazoo. “Tom’s inspired programming mixes the world famous with great local and regional talent, to provide performances of the highest quality.”
July 26th – Bob Zentz
Bob is a singer of songs, old and new, about people, places and times gone by, a player of dozens of the usual (and unusual!) “unplugged” folk instruments, a collector of stories in verse, a teller of “the tales behind the songs”, a commentator on the ecology of the human spirit, and a scholar of the evolution of “homemade music”
