Live Music in the Maryland Eastern Shore

For those living in the Washington D.C. - Baltimore region there are a plethora of live music venues to choose. However many do not even realize that their choices are even greater if you include the venues operating in Maryland's Eastern Shore. Andy's in Chestertown, is only 90 minutes from Washington DC and hosts several national and local acts. In the coming weeks, you have the opportunity to see Bombadil and Predator Dub Assassins with The Two Man Gentlemen Band and the Christine Havrilla Band coming in May.

The largest expansion in the live music realm has occurred in Easton Maryland, with several venues booking great national acts. The Avalon Theatre may be the most recognizable and for this spring they have booked Sarah Borges & the Broken Singles, Willy Porter, The Seldom Scene, Lucy Kaplansky, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops. The Coffee East is similar to Vienna's Jammin Java - providing high value entertainment at a neighborhood venue. Scott Miller, Greg Trooper, Luke Brindley, Tony Furtado, Bombadil, and Slaid Cleaves are just a few of the great acts coming this spring. When beach traffic gets crazy over the summer, what a great location to listen to music while the traffic clears.

Perhaps the best upcoming show is Joe Ely playing at the Historical Society Auditorium on April 25th. Check out the Mangold Entertainment website for details. This is a must see event.
