Songs of fishermen and the sea at maritime park June 19

by Bill Powell and
Janie Meneely

The Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park will host an evening of music about the sea and the fishermen who ply its waters. Enjoy the musical adventures of the men, women and boats of the world of “dangerous catches” and “wicked tuna.” The concert will benefit the museum and Colonial Seaport Foundation’s (CSF) “Luna Project.” It will be held in the waterfront events area on Wednesday, June 19, from 6-9 p.m. The concert will be in the Pavilion in case of rain.

Musical artist/songwriter John Conolly and guitarist/balladeer Rob van Sante will be performing for the event. They will be joined by Chesapeake songster Janie Meneely whose own repertoire reflects the people, places and history of the Chesapeake Bay.

John, Rob and Janie will make you laugh, cry and sing along as they take you on a trip, mates, along the vanishing waterfronts of Great Britain. Check them out at
