ROAD SCHOLAR SUMMER MUSIC SERIES

Enjoy maritime music inside in the Harms Gallery

 

The Calvert Marine Museum is offering a new music series of traditional maritime music performances. Created for our visiting Road Scholar participants, these performances begin on Monday, May 22 and are in the Harms Gallery starting at 7 p.m. Open to the public, tickets are $10 at the door (cash or check). Doors open at 6 p.m. with beer and wine available for sale.

Monday, May 22 - Tom Lewis
Tom Lewis has a rich repertoire that ranges from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background, by turns reflective, dramatic, and humorous. Born in Northern Ireland, Tom’s Celtic heritage is obvious in his clear, strong voice, evoking quiet sorrow for a fisherman lost to the sea just as honestly as it powers out a shanty "to be heard above the gales." With songs that have become folk standards, known and sung wherever great choruses ring out, Tom accompanies himself on button accordion and ukulele — but it is that powerful vocal style and infectious humor which keeps audiences utterly enchanted and thoroughly entertained.

Tuesday, June 13 - Janie Meneely and Rob van Sante

This duo joins forces for an evening of maritime music from the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. Rob’s virtuoso guitar accompanies an array of Janie’s bay-spun originals, while Meneely adds vocal harmonies to his traditional ballads. Well known in chantey circles, Janie has been singing about Chesapeake people, places, and history for years. Dutch-born van Sante is a guitarist of skill and subtlety, who recently toured with The Battlefield Band, a Scottish group steeped in traditional music.

Tuesday, August 1 - Simon Spalding

Spalding is a well-known interpreter of traditional maritime music, having performed at festivals all over the globe. He is an extraordinarily versatile musician, at ease with styles including traditional English, Scottish, Scandinavian, Russian, and American folk music. Besides his beloved violin, he plays over fifty instruments. In addition to being an accomplished musician, he has published “Food at Sea: Shipboard Cuisine from Ancient to Modern Times.”

Tuesday, September 5 - Bob Zentz

Zentz is a prolific musician, playing several dozen instruments in a repertoire of more than 2,000 songs. An accomplished teller of the tales behind the songs, and an acknowledged scholar of the evolution of “home-made” music, Zentz has performed for audiences of all ages. His six albums span the genres of folk, traditional, Celtic and maritime music and beyond, and his recordings also appear on other artist compilations. Bob Zentz was the first folk artist ever honored by a star in the Virginia "Legends of Music Walk of Fame" in his hometown of Norfolk, VA, in 2016.

Tuesday, September 19 - Rachel Eddy

Rachel Eddy was born and raised in rural West Virginia. She grew up listening to local fiddlers, her father among them, going to old-time festivals, and attending square dances. The fiddle bug bit her early in life and in addition to that instrument, Rachel now performs and teaches full-time on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass. She spent time performing and teaching in Stockholm and has returned to West Virginia. Rachel Eddy recently performed at the Calvert Marine Museum with Ken and Brad Kolodner Trio.
