John Mock—From the Shoreline concert at CBMM July 15

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD will host musician and photographer John Mock on Tuesday, July 15, at 5:30 p.m. Held in the Van Lennep Auditorium, the performance invites all ages to an evening of original compositions on the guitar, concertina, and tin whistle—all accompanied by a photographic slideshow documenting the maritime vistas inspiring his music.

John MockMock captures the essence of the sea in his music and photographs. Traveling coastlines from New England to Chincoteague and as far away as Ireland, Mock finds inspiration for his art among seaside villages, wooden boats, and whitewashed lighthouses.

As a composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, Mock has worked with such notable artists as James Taylor, Nanci Griffith, Maura O’Connell, Kathy Mattea, and Mark O’Connor. His orchestral arrangements have been performed by the London Symphony, the National Symphony, and the symphonies of Atlanta and Nashville.

The concert is $15 for CBMM members, or $25 for non-members, with children under six and active military admitted free. Seating is limited, with advanced registration needed by calling 410-745-4991.
