Holiday Open Mic and Annual Pot Luck Dinner Meeting - Free Event

The SMTMD Holiday Open Mic is one of the most loved and well attended open mic nights of the year. It is a warm and friendly evening beginning at 6:30 with a pot luck dinner. Everybody is asked to bring a favorite side dish or dessert. The board will be providing the main dish.

Performers are encouraged to do holiday songs, but it isn’t a hard and fast rule.

Our Treasurer will give us a run down of the financial status of the group, and the membership will vote on the next year’s board. All potential board members must be members in good standing (meaning that they must have paid their dues for the year(s) in which they intend to serve.)

Jody Marshall and Friends Holiday Concert

Jody Marshall and Friends Holiday Concert

Come and join Southern Maryland Traditional Music and Dance for a Christmas Concert on Dec 1st at Christ Church Parish Hall, Zach Fowler Rd,  Chaptico.

Tickets at the door $15 for non members, $10 for members.

 SMTMD presents:

 Jody Marshall and Friends have put together a fantastic Christmas show of lilting jigs, rollicking reels, three-part harmony vocals, knock-your-socks-off arrangements, and a whole lot of fun – including a bit of festive frivolity. You will not want to miss the hammered dulcimer wizardry of Jody Marshall, soulful songstress Carey Creed, fiddlin’ fiend Jim Queen, and prodigious pianist Paul Nahay when they bring their holiday show to Southern Maryland. All four musicians have been mainstays of the Washington, DC-area traditional folk music scene for longer than they care to admit!

 Jody Marshall was a founding member of the popular folk trios, Ironweed and MoonFire, and also performed extensively with the award-winning ensemble, Connemara. Renowned as a masterful hammered dulcimer player and teacher, she also plays piano and brings a keen sense of harmony to her backup vocals. The Washington Post describes Jody’s music as “lovely, lively, and shimmering.”

 Carey Creed has won multiple Wammie awards from the Washington Area Music Association. A versatile vocalist, she has been known to perform everything from folk ballads to gospel songs to jazz standards, as well as well-crafted songs of her own creation. Carey also plays piano, guitar, and various hand-held percussion thingies.

 Paul Nahay is an accompanist extraordinaire. Whether he’s backing a beautiful ballad from Carey, rockin’ a duet with Jody and her dulcimer, or duking it out with Jim and his fiery fiddle, Paul’s artful piano playing is the group’s rock-solid foundation. Paul is also a composer and arranger, and lately he has been busy arranging everything from holiday favorites to pop classics for choral groups.

 Jim Queen is a 30-year veteran performer with the Air Force Band. He has performed worldwide and in almost every state, and has played for presidents, heads of state, and luminaries in every field. He has played just about every fiddle style in the book, but has a particular love for Celtic and old-time fiddle tunes. You may have seen Jim a time or two playing with his Celtic band, Iona.

Pettaway.jpg

This fantastic concert will be held at the Calvert Marine Museum, Solomon's Maryland. 

Al Petteway is a Grammy and Indie Award-winning guitarist who has toured and recorded with many of the best-known artists in folk and Celtic music.

His music has been featured on dozens of CDs and soundtracks, including filmmaker Ken Burns’ Emmy-winning PBS series, The National Parks-America’s Best Idea, featuring Al’s music throughout. Originally a D.C. area resident, Al won multiple Wammies from the Washington Area Music Association before moving to the mountains of Western North Carolina with singer songwriter wife, Amy White. His latest CD, “The Collector’s Passion,” includes tunes from his Chesapeake-inspired project, “The Waters and the Wild.”  We welcome you to join us in this opportunity to see Al perform as a soloist, playing his favorite pieces.
