CALVERT MARINE MUSEUM ANNOUNCES 2019 SUMMER CONCERT LINEUP
SOLOMONS, MD – March 29, 2019 – Summer in Solomons means so many things – strolls on the boardwalk, waterfront dining, and concerts at the Calvert Marine Museum (CMM). CMM is excited to announce its 2019 Summer Concert Series lineup at the PNC Waterside Pavilion.
As was previously announced, country music star Kane Brown will perform live at CMM on Saturday, June 1. The young singer/songwriter has been selling out every venue in his first headlining tour, featuring popular hits such as: Heaven, Lose It, What Ifs, and Good as You. This is no surprise, considering Brown recently became the first artist ever to be #1 on all five of Billboard’s major country charts simultaneously. Opening acts include To A T singer Ryan Hurd and Maryland’s own homegrown sensation Jackson Dean. Tickets are $35-$89 (additional fees apply), and are available now for CMM members and on April 2 for the general public at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.
Enjoy an evening with the legendary music group, Earth, Wind & Fire on Wednesday, July 3 as you kick off your long holiday weekend. Earth, Wind & Fire are a music institution. Over their five-decade history, they've sold out concerts all around the globe, scored eight number one hits, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Celebrating timeless songs and a commitment to spreading positivity, Earth, Wind & Fire has consistently made music that has bridged the gap among all generations and nationalities. Whether it’s the funky and infectious Let’s Groove to the timeless dance classic September to the heartfelt Reasons, Earth, Wind & Fire’s unique blend of funk, jazz, pop, soul, and R&B is timeless. Tickets are $38 - $86 (additional fees apply) and will go on sale April 9 for CMM members and April 16 for the general public.
Country fans get their second show of the season with Brett Eldredge on Friday, July 26. This singer/songwriter dropped his first two albums into the top two positions of Billboard’s country chart with Bring You Back and Illinois, and did the same with an incredible six singles in a row, all hitting #1. More recently, fan-favorite Love Someone gives true meaning to the term "man’s best friend". Eldredge’s throaty baritone shines with casual confidence, and progressive country mixes freely with classic pop and soul. Tickets are $36 - $69 (additional fees apply) and will go on sale May 7 for CMM members and May 10 for the general public.
