Musicians re-unite from across the Atlantic to support local environmental group
The international duo Janie Meneely and Rob van Sante will be travelling from their home in Whitby, England, to perform a concert of Chesapeake Bay folk music with Jefferson Holland to benefit Annapolis Green.
Admission is $20 per person. Advance sale tickets are available: Contact Jefferson at email@example.com. Beer & wine will be available for purchase for those over 21 years of age. Soft drinks and water will also be served.
Janie Meneely and Rob van Sante bring a breath of salt air to any stage. Their collaborative effort, marked by evocative instrumentals, strong vocals and original arrangements support an array of mostly maritime, mostly new material.
Singer/songwriter Janie Meneely brings her nautical perspective to the world of folk music and storytelling, celebrating the maritime history, characters, and traditions of the Chesapeake Bay region where she was born and raised. In 2015, she partnered with Dutch-born guitarist Rob van Sante who lends his knack for melodies and flair for vocal harmony to Meneely’s compositions.
Jefferson Holland is a modern-day Chesapeake Troubadour: singer, songwriter, poet, story-teller, performing all original material inspired by decades of life on the Bay. Jeff served as the director of the Annapolis Maritime Museum and the Riverkeeper for the West and Rhode Rivers. He and Janie co-founded the Chesapeake folk group “Crab Alley,” which toured around the Bay in the 1980s and ’90s. Jeff founded “Them Eastport Oyster Boys” with partner Kevin Brooks in 1992. Currently, he writes an outdoors column in the Annapolis Capital and articles for other publications.

For five years, the Concert for the Chesapeake Bay has presented a terrific assortment of music. Ranging from indie chamber pop to rocking soul and American roots to rhythmic beat boxing, talented artists performed in support of volunteerism for the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This year’s concert highlights some of the “fan favorites”. There were great acts such as indie pop band Jukebox the Ghost, the Great American Canyon Band, Kelly Bell Band, Bobby E Lee & the Sympathizers and The Bellevederes. There was also soul singing Brooks Long and the Mad Dog No Good and The Herd of Main Street. Then there were the Punch Brothers with lead singer Chris Thile, who was recently named host of the famed Prairie Home Companion radio show, the Ursula Ricks Project, Among Wolves, Bosley, Seattle indie band Hey Marseilles, and singer/songwriter Victoria Vox with beatboxer Shodekeh. And it was back in our very first concert that we got things started with four special acts – the amazing Chris Jacobs Band, the talented Rachael Yamagata, the unique rap/folk duo of Caleb and Saleem and the soul sounds of Old Man Brown – featuring “The Voice” finalist Adam Wakefield.
