    Three concerts to celebrate Tom Wisner

    Three concerts in Maryland will celebrate the life and work of Tom Wisner, "The Bard of the Chesapeake", who recorded two albums of original songs for Folkways Records.

    The concerts are a CD-release party for "Follow On The Water: A Celebration of the Bay's Life in Story and Song" and will be held at the Calvert Marine Museum on Friday, January 29 (sold out), at the Annapolis Maritime Museum on Saturday, January 30, and at The Avalon Theatre in Easton, MD on Sunday, January 31. Tom, who has battled lung cancer for the past year, has dedicated his life to chronicling the rich traditions of the regional Maryland waterways and will be joined on stage by Frank Schwartz, Teresa Whitaker, Mac Walter, and John Cronin.
