Chesapeake singer-songwriter Janie Meneely and Dutch-born traditional balladeer Rob van Sante join forces for an evening of maritime music from the Bay. The concert will be held on Saturday, May 14th from 7-9p at the Reedville Fishermen’s Museum. Tickets are available online for $20/ $25 at the door.
Benefits from the concert will go towards the ongoing preservation of the Claud W. Somers, one of the last remaining skipjacks that sail the Chesapeake Bay. Built in 1911 on teh Eastern Shore of Virginia, the Claud W. Somers dredged oysters in Maryland until she tragically sank in 1977 near Deale Island during a squall, leaving six drowned, including her owner-captain. She was salvaged and restored and is now docked at the Reedville Fishermen s Museum.
