‘Groovin’ in the Park’ concerts begin Saturday
Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park’s live music series, “Groovin’ in the Park,” begins this Saturday, May 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. with “Jumbo Lump Daddy and the Backfin Boys.” This popular genre-defying group will perform in the museum’s new Waterfront Park, overlooking picturesque Mill Creek.
“Jumbo Lump Daddy” starts off this five-concert series, which continues June 13 with the traditional bluegrass group “Rockfalls Express.”
Third in the series on July 11 are “The Orderlies,” three singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalists who craft intricate music with interesting arrangements.
Singer-songwriter Steve Keith follows on August 1 with his blend of bluegrass, Irish folk songs, sea shanties and country and western that has made him popular at concerts and clubs around the country.
Modern, progressive guitarist Josh Walker rounds out the series on August 22 with his crowd pleasing guitar compositions and fretwork.
All concerts are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m., rain or shine. This is a “cooler friendly” event. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets. A limited number of folding chairs will be available.
Tickets are $10 at the door or can be bought in groups of five—“season” tickets for $30 dollars, a $20 savings. These tickets are good at any performance. Tickets also may be purchased by mail by calling the museum at 776-7200 and leaving one’s name and address, or at Nauti-Nell’s in Deltaville. All proceeds directly benefit the museum and park.
Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park, an all-volunteer, all-donation, non-profit organization, is located in Deltaville, at 287 Jackson Creek Road and on Mill Creek. The park and all outside facilities are open dawn until dusk.
