John Mock to Present “From the Shoreline”

Renowned musician and photographer John Mock will present his unique multimedia maritime concert presentation “From The Shoreline” at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD, on August 15th at 12:00pm.  Please visit www.cbmm.org for more information.

John Mock is an artist and the sea and its coasts are his muse. From New England to Chincoteague to Ireland, the Atlantic’s beautiful coastline and quaint villages, its wooden boats and whitewashed lighthouses, continue to inspire and inform John’s art. He captures in music and in photographs the heritage of the sea.  He shares this heritage with audiences everywhere through his elegant and unique concert presentation From the Shoreline, where John performs original instrumental compositions on the guitar, concertina, and tin whistle. John’s own photography is projected onto a screen behind him, and his casual narration and storytelling tie it all together.  CBMM’s Director of Education, Robert Forloney, commented that “John’s process of tying photographs of unique places along with original music is simply phenomenal. Through sound and image, he is able to create encompassing atmospheres that capture these special landscapes and stories. Whatever your age may be, a concert of John’s is a wonderful experience.”  John’s CD The Day At Sea can be found in many of America’s maritime museum shops and his concerts have been presented at a diverse array of venues including the keeper’s house at Atlantic City’s Absecon Light, the famed Guthrie Center in Massachusetts, and museums and performing arts series on both coasts.  John is excited to return for his third performance at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

A native of Connecticut’s eastern shore, John’s work has taken him around the world. Widely sought after as a composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, he has worked with such notable artists as the Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Nanci Griffith, Maura O’Connell, Sylvia, Kathy Mattea and Mark O’Connor. His orchestral arrangements have been performed by orchestras throughout America and abroad, including the London Symphony, the National Symphony and the symphonies of Atlanta and Nashville.  John’s credits as composer and featured artist include performances with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Ireland, and the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra, as well as solo performances throughout the country.
