OCEAN Celtic Quartet presents "Calling the Sun"
A Summer Solstice Concert
We're thrilled to have OCEAN returning to 333 for this special seasonal event! It's been some years since their wonderful music has graced our venue.

The Summer Solstice is the longest day and shortest night of the year, and was celebrated throughout the Celtic world as the peak of the Sun’s awesome power. Come hear the award-winning Maryland/Virginia Celtic ensemble, the OCEAN Celtic Quartet, in a program of traditional and original music celebrating the mystery and symbolism of the Sun. OCEAN’s soaring vocals, fiery fiddle tunes, and rollicking button accordion will have your heart swelling and your toes tapping, while you sing along with songs that stretch back for centuries. Not only will there be seasonal music, but dramatic readings of Summer poetry from the Middle Ages up through the 1800s… even a special guest appearance by the ancient Green Man, also known as Jack-in-the-Green. The audience will have many opportunities to join in on the singing and merriment, to be sure!  

OCEAN’s members are bandleader/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Cutting (a Washington Area Music Association “Musician of the Year”); mesmerizing Eastern Shore vocalist Chris Noyes (formerly of the maritime music group Crab Alley); champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds; and traditional singer / Ph.D. folklorist Stephen Winick. 

Join us for this joyful celebration to mark the peak of the year’s light and warmth. Join the fun by wearing your blazing yellow and orange colors, and singing along on sun-kissed choruses!

Doors open by 7 pm. Refreshments are available at the show.
