St. Patrick’s Day Concert with OCEAN Quartet at Annapolis Maritime Museum
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday evening, March 18, with a high-spirited Irish-themed concert by the OCEAN Quartet, whom Eye on Annapolis has called “Washington’s most prominent Celtic fusion group.” With their soaring vocals and atomically-charged instrumentals, OCEAN will pay tribute to St. Pat with a special helping of comic and sentimental Irish songs, plus plenty of blazing jigs and reels to set your toes tapping and your blood racing. The audience will have many opportunities to join in on the singing and merriment, to be sure!
Jennifer Cutting (accordions, piano, artistic director), Lisa Moscatiello (voice, guitar, whistle), Bob Spates (fiddle), and Steve Winick (voice) are internationally known, collectively and solo, for their goosebump-raising performances and surprise-filled repertoire. Composer and ethnomusicologist Jennifer Cutting culls through the Library of Congress’s Folk Archive to find rare ballads and tunes, giving them shimmering new shapes with her vivid musical imagination. Vocalist Lisa Moscatiello has a voice that Billboard magazine called "one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop.” Fiddler Bob Spates is a virtuoso who can not only make his violin cry, but his fiddle fly. Steve Winick’s lusty tenor and powerful delivery will root you to the spot. The Washington Post calls OCEAN “Nothing short of spellbinding…” Find out why when you fall under their spell at this special St. Paddy’s Day concert.
