Amy Henderson headlines Groovin’ at maritime park

Amy Henderson and “Cheap Comfort”

Holly Point Market is Saturday

by Bill Powell
Events Director
Deltaville Maritime Museum

With the excitement of Hurricane Florence in the rearview mirror, I know everyone will be looking forward to getting out of the house this Saturday, September 22, as the final Holly Point Market and Groovin’ in the Park concert of the season fill what looks to be a beautiful day at Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park.

The market is open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and Groovin’ in the Park is from 6-8 p.m. Groovin’ gates open at 5 p.m.

Along with lots of shopping, all the fun stuff like the Rappahannock Railroaders with their model trains, the “Cigar Box String Band” with its traditional fun music, our own balladeer David Moran, Captain Pete Cardozo with his free creek cruises on “Only Son,” the boat shop volunteers with the new “Hull 101” and “Hull 102,” and “F.D. Crockett” and more will all be happening.

The museum with its new exhibits and gift shop opens at 9 a.m. with donation-only admission. 

“Cheap Comfort” takes the stage at 6 p.m. with a hybrid of blues, country, and folk all wrapped up in melodic pop framework. The band is also helping Amy Henderson promote her new CD release titled “MAY.” Blending splashes of harmony, percussion and a variety of stringed instruments, Cheap Comfort is sure to put a smile on your face.

Amy says, “A mix of ballad with fire and brimstone: that’s what I like to call my music. Add a little pop with some rootsy southerness for leavening and that’s our mix.”
