Janie Meneely & Rob Van Sante CD Release w/ Caâ€[TM]M (Special Event)

  • 17 Feb 2018
  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Seekers Church, Washington, DC
Takoma Park's own Janie Meneely & Rob Van Sante return from their part-year residence in the folk music stronghold of Whidby, England with material from their first CD as a duo. Janie, the immediate past program chair of FSGW, is known around the world for witty original maritime songs in the forebitter tradition with a feminist twist - and for songs that paint a vivid picture of the Chesapeake Bay, where she sails for real and edits Chesapeake Bay magazine. Rob is a guitar powerhouse; when he's not touring or recording with Janie, he's touring or recording with Alan Reid of the Battlefield Band. Opening: The Ca'Meows, high-energy Irish trad band of alumni of the Sligo Creek Hedge School's Teen Week Celtic Band Camp. Alora Martin and Josh Henderson of the Martin Family String Band, Darrow Sherman of Maelstrom, Keely Hollyfield, and Nick Moen perform under the direction of Karen Ashbrook & Paul Oorts. $20; members, $10.
