Celebrate the tall ships coming to Chestertown with Friday and Saturday night concerts at the Garfield Center for the Arts. The Pam Ortiz Band opens the weekend with a 7pm concert on Friday, October 28th, and Holy Ghost Tent Revival plays at 8pm on Saturday, October 29th.
Join us on October 28th for an evening of songs of the sea, water and ships. It promises to be a fun night of new songs, old and new friends. The Pam Ortiz band has performed sold out Downrigging shows for the past four years. Join the celebration as it moves to Friday night at the Garfield Center for the Arts. The band will perform a set celebrating songs of water, sea and sailing and a set of original tunes and stories written by songwriter Pam Ortiz. Guest appearances by the Chestertown Ukulele Club and Mayor Chris Cerino. Tickets are $15.
Then, on October 29th, Holy Ghost Tent Revival comes to town! Their exhilarating live show has uplifted audiences since the band formed in 2007. For the past eight years, they have been honing their unique sound, which NPR describes as that of a “soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers, contemporary indie-rock acts like Dr. Dog, and New Orleans brass-band jazz.”
Conceived in Philadelphia under the creative wing of Bill Moriarty (Man Man, The Sheepdogs,) their third full-length studio album, Right State Of Mind, sees the band putting earlier conventions aside in exploration of more soul-rock leanings. The album dances nimbly between genres while touching on themes of alienation, moving on after death, the joy of staying up all night in the city, the interconnected nature and beauty of life, and longing for a home that is no more.This concert is sponsored by the “Peter and Wendy Fund” of Andrew and Leslie Price, and is the first in a new Roots at the Garfield concert series. Tickets are $25 general admission and $15 for students.
Tickets can be purchased at the Garfield Box Office, online at www.garfieldcenter.org or by calling 410-810-2060.The Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre is located at 210 High Street, Chestertown, MD, 21620.
