Susan Greenbaum, the “Little Lady with the Big Voice,” will bring her band, songs and hard-hitting vocal style to the Saturday, June 24, Deltaville Maritime Museum casual outdoor concert series, Groovin’ in the Park. She will take the Waterfront Stage from 6-8 p.m. Amy Henderson will open at 5 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m.

Both these ladies are back on the museum stage by popular demand!

The 2017 Groovin’ concert series is sponsored by EVB Bank.

Billboard Magazine says: “Susan Greenbaum’s voice is a delight . . . strong, clear and drenched in pleasing harmonies. A startlingly adept writer . . . ripe for national airplay.”

Susan recently released her CD, “This Life,” on Compass Records Group. It is her fifth recording, and her first on Compass. The recording is already receiving significant national airplay on Americana, folk and country stations.

Susan has appeared at such venues as The Bottom Line in New York City, The Birchmere, Bethlehem Musikfest, Floyd Fest, and Rams Head Tavern. In addition to touring with Jewel, Susan’s credits include performing an acoustic set with Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley, and opening for Kenny Loggins, Patty Griffin, Dar Williams, Janis Ian, Todd Snider, and Jim Messina.

Making her home base in Richmond, guitarist/songwriter Amy Henderson has been entertaining crowds up and down the East Coast for years with her buoyant and soulful Indie folk rock. Amy has many styles—from gritty Americana, to alternative folk to lonesome ballads, all with some serious pop hooks thrown in. Her engaging songwriting is punctuated by a clear and captivating voice and amazing harmonica, backed by solid guitar.

Amy says, “A mix of a ballad and hell fire and brimstone—that’s what I like to call my music. A little alternative pop with some rootsy Southerness built right in.”

All Groovin’ concerts are held in the museum’s spacious Waterfront Park overlooking pristine Mill Creek. Come by land or water. Seating and music will spread out to the north toward the Tea House food court. This is a “bring your own lawn chair, cooler, and picnic” event. Some metal folding chairs are close by if you can’t bring yours.

For those who don’t have time to cook, Groovin’ now offers hot dogs, barbecue, cheeseburgers, hamburgers, sodas and bottled water at David’s Snak-shak concession next to the Tea House. It’s always hot and tasty.

We welcome back Marty’s “Swine Skins” to our food and drink offerings. Try Marty’s new cheese flavor and “sweet” skins.  

Groovin’ will happen, rain or shine. The concert will be on the stage in the museum’s spacious events pavilion in case of inclement weather.

Tickets for Groovin’ are $10 in advance or $15 at the gate. Get tickets through the museum office or at Nauti Nell’s in Deltaville.  

There is plenty of parking in our spacious lots and concert-goers are encouraged to drive through and drop off their passengers and gear before parking. Please be aware of the one-way traffic pattern.

The June Holly Point Market will be held that same morning from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
