2010 Summertime Maritime Concert Series Links Music with Environmental Stewardship

Thursdays, June 3 – August 12    7-8:30 p.m.
“Any place worth singing about is a place worth preserving,” says Janie Meneely,
one of a growing number of singer/songwriters who are building on the work of
Tom Wisner, the “Bard of the Bay” who dedicated his life to fostering stronger
stewardship of the environment through his music and the arts.
Meneely used this philosophy to produce the Annapolis Maritime Museum’s 10th
annual Summertime Maritime Concert series, which features many of these
Chesapeake Bay musicians as well as artist from other watersheds across the
country.  All the concerts feature traditional songs or original material written
by the artists. The series runs every Thursday evening from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Thursday, June 3 – Woods Tea Company’s 
dynamic trio specializes in maritime and Americana music culled from decades of performing and entertaining audiences throughout the U.S. “The spirit of the sea will be the theme for this concert,” says Howard Wooden, the group’s leader.
