Maritime Music

If you will be on the island this coming Sunday, June 12 you are invited to join Janie Meneely & Rob van Sante at Coyote Music Den  from  8–10 p.m. They will be presenting an evening of maritime music they call "The Bay and Beyond." Admission is $15 per person.

Described as “The Voice of the Chesapeake” singer/songwriter Janie Meneely joins forces with Dutch-born guitarist/balladeer Rob van Sante for a lively evening of maritime music derived from the Old World and the New. Meneely brings the characters and history of the Chesapeake Bay watermen to life with witty and sometimes poignant clarity.

Van Sante, who has toured extensively with the likes of Alan Reid (Battlefield Band), Kate Rusby, John Connolly and other folk luminaries, adds his own take on traditional music while backing Janie up on guitar and vocals.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the dramatic story of life-saver Rasmus Midgett and his rescue of the crew of the barkentine Priscilla in August, 1899. You can read it here:

    Not familiar w-Coyote Music Den, Philip. Would you shed some light on it for us, please? Thanks.

    1. Ah, yes...Coyote Music Den is Marcie Brenner & Lou Castro's new venue in the Community Square. It is the old Gathering Place and the old Black Schooner Gift Shop.
