‘Voice of the Chesapeake’ Janie Meneely to perform tonight

Janie McNeeley

troubadour Janie Meneely will perform at the Coyote Music Den this Sunday,8 to 10 p.m.  She grew up in Annapolis and has been described as “The Voice of the Chesapeake.”

“I can remember when the City Dock was jammed with work boats,” she said. Nowadays recreational boaters have replaced the sleek working vessels that hauled crabs, fish and oysters to markets around the Bay.

Her songwriting spans more than 25 years chronicling her own Bay experiences and capturing the stories she’s heard over the years—either as a little girl hanging around her father’s boatyard, or during her professional stint as a journalist for Chesapeake Bay Magazine. These songs and stories include the local ghosts, colorful watermen and tragic shipwrecks of the Chesapeake Bay.

Meneely will be joined on stage with Dutch-born guitarist/balladeer Rob van Sante.

The Coyote Music Den is in the Community Square. Tickets are $15.
