MARITIME PERFORMANCE SERIES CONTINUES THROUGH MARCH

 

The 7th Annual Maritime Performance Series continues at the Calvert Marine Museum with a mix of fiddle tunes and songs in January to pure American jazz in February and March. Performances begin at 7 p.m. in the Harms Gallery. 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. The series is sponsored in part by Holiday Inn Solomons.

Friday, January 27 - Ken and Brad Kolodner Trio with Rachel Eddy

Regarded as one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players and Old-Time fiddlers in North America, Baltimore’s Ken Kolodner has joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in the clawhammer banjo world. They are joined by fiddler, guitarist, and vocalist Rachel Eddy. Together, they infuse their own brand of driving, innovative, and unique interpretations of traditional and original fiddle tunes and songs. Tickets are $15 online, $20 at the door.

Friday, February 17 - The Redwine Jazz Band plays Mardi Gras

The Redwine Jazz Band performs pure American jazz. The band is led by clarinetist Ben Redwine, recently retired from the US Naval Academy Band and former clarinet professor at The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC. Guitarist Tom Mitchell was a member of “Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks” band. A Baltimore resident, he is a popular performer of swinging jazz and “hokum” music. Bassist John Previti, a premier jazz bassist on the East Coast, was Danny Gatton’s bassist for nearly two decades. Tickets are $12 online, $15 at the door.

Friday, March 17 - The Benjie Porecki Trio 

The Benjie Porecki Trio pays homage to jazz as one of the true American art forms, playing classic jazz standards with fire and intensity. Keyboardist Benjie Porecki is a 20-year music industry veteran who has played with Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, and many others. Drummer Mark Prince displays mastery in virtually all genres of music and has played with professional musicians across the industry. Zack Pride, a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory, went on to study with some of the preeminent masters of acoustic bass, and is a member of the Army Band, “Pershing’s Own”. Tickets are $15 online, $20 at the door.

Eastman Handcrafted Guitars & Mandolins has donated a beautiful Rosewood and Mahogany acoustic guitar and hard case (valued at $700) to support the Maritime Performance Series. The guitar is being raffled and the drawing will be held at the March 17 concert. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20 and available at the concerts, during our First Free Friday events, and at the Museum Store.
