Easton’s Promise Opens Art Gallery

Jan 12, 2011 ● By Anonymous

“Art for your life.” The newly minted motto for Easton’s Promise Art Gallery largely reflects the shared philosophy of its founders, husband-and-wife duo Pete and Carla Howell. The two have owned and operated Easton’s Promise Bed and Breakfast since 2003, and just recently made the decision to convert the bed and breakfast’s public spaces, namely the living room, dining room, and hallway space, into an exhibit area for the sale of local artwork.

Mac Castelli: The Art of the Waterman

Jan 12, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Chesapeake watermen are often sentimentalized as picturesque additions to the scenery, or quaint pieces of local color. Alternately, they are vilified as despoilers of the Bay, overfishing in the face of innumerable regulations intended to “save the Bay”—but not to save the watermen. Even efforts to preserve the watermen’s culture do not always extend to sustaining their economic viability.

Elizabeth & The Catapult & Concert Previews

Jan 04, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Rams’ Head in Annapolis has announced a host of shows to start the new year (hey, it’ll be here before we know it). The under-40 set will not likely pick up on this one, but Al Stewart (alstewart.com) takes the stage on March 3. Rahsaan Patterson (rahsaan.com) plays on March 5. If you’re not ready to admit that the holidays are quickly approaching, and you feel like heading to Dewey on October 2, Elizabeth & The Catapult (elizabethandthecatapult.com) will play the Rusty Rudder mere days before touring with Aimee Mann. The syncopated beat of “Race You”, the lead single from the forthcoming The Other Side of Zero instantly catches the listener. In fact, the track was recently used in a Google advertisement. Since Google knows just about everything else you’re doing, you may as well buy in and listen to the music they suggest, too. MTV has given the video for “Race You” airtime and you would be smart to give Elizabeth & The Catapult a listen. The pop sensibility of the band is ever-present on the Rilo Kiley-esque “Momma’s Boy” from their debut album, Taller Children, but the band is versatile enough that they pulled off a beautiful cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” on the same record. If you are just now picking up on Florence & The Machine after the VMAs, or if you are tired of the same old indie-pop, this ought to tickle your fancy. Elizabeth & The Catapult will also play in Easton on November 4 at the NightCat.

Pianist Brian Ganz: Wounded by Chopin

Jan 04, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Local pianist Brian Ganz has come a long way since deciding to pursue music at age 12, not much older than the age of his muse, child-prodigy Frédéric Chopin when he composed his first Polonaises. Since that moment, Ganz has studied with teachers Yida Novik and Claire Deene, as well as Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, where Ganz now teaches. He’s played in concert halls worldwide, and is also a member of the piano faculty and the current Artist-in-Residence at St. Mary’s College in Maryland.
