First Sunday Arts Festival in Annapolis: August 3rd on Historic West Street

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 12:26 am by Administrator

Over 100 Artists and Crafters, Music, Dance, and Performances

Summer is a prime season for visits to Historic Downtown Annapolis and is the perfect time for taking in the First Sunday Arts Festival with its many cafes and shops on West Street. The line up of free events for the day is a well-rounded smorgasbord of art-related fun for the whole family with over 100 fine artists and crafters lining the streets. These local and regional artists will be exhibiting silkscreen, pottery, hand blown and fused glass, nautical paintings and photography, wood turnings, iron works, jewelry, books, face paintings, henna tattoos, painted ostrich eggs and more. One of the great things about shopping at First Sunday Arts is meeting the artisans, learning their stories and feeling their passion about the unique items they create. The date is Sunday, August 3 from 12:00 noon – 5:00 pm.

Come early and enjoy the soothing music of guitarist Jonathan Stone at 49 West Coffeehouse or take in a Bloody Mary at Stan and Joe’s. Meander through the many shops such as The Annapolis Collection Gallery, devoted to the display of the Annapolis master painters who have received recognition for their artistic talents. And, at the end of the day, the festival continues with steel drums by The Geckos on the patio of Ramshead Tavern. Dogs are welcome, too! Life is good on West Street!

August’s sponsors are: Remodel USA, Leaf Filter Gutter Guards, Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing, and Nu Look Home Design.

There will be two more opportunities to enjoy First Sunday activities in 2014: September 7 and October 5. For more information, visit www.firstsundayarts.com

Our Musical Line-Up:

At Whitmore Park:

12:00 noon – 2:00 pm

Mike Heuer’s: Heuer’s sound stems from a handful of styles. Trained classically, Mike’s now loosely tagged as a funk-soul artist, though you’re sure to find elements of R&B, folk, and jazz in the mix. With his debut self-titled EP now cut, he’s continuing to sharpen his live sound and songwriting and add more venues to the list. Catch him and his band, Bonfuego, every week in the DMV.

2:30 – 4:30 pm

Ursula Ricks: “Once you’ve heard Ursula Ricks, you are forever changed by the sultry voice and the way she makes your heart and soul feel.” Ursula’s new CD will do nothing less than her voice on stage has always done. She will move you to tears or move you to dance; either way, you’re gonna be moved!

At Wiseman Park:

12:30 pm – 2:15 pm

TradeMark: Back by popular demand! The acoustic rock/country trio of Richard Strickland, Steve Sitton and Mark Magistrelli features strong vocal harmonies backed with an acoustic guitar, bass and drums. Their good time energy and sound is a great fit for any venue. TradeMark covers tunes from the Eagles, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jimmy Buffett, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith and many more.

3:00 pm – 4:45 pm

Three Shot Mocha: Playing together since November of 2011, Three Shot Mocha covers classic jazz standards with some contemporary surprises thrown in. Their diverse tastes and backgrounds in music, from barbershop harmony to boogie woogie piano to bluegrass to rock, provides for interesting and sometimes unexpected arrangements. However, jazz is their passion and it shows whether crooning a ballad or swinging out on the sax. The more coffee they drink, the faster they play.

And don’t miss the Strolling Troubadours: Good Measure, with Frances Moyer on bass, Sue Straney on fiddle, and Stanley Haley on guitar. Good Measure plays an upbeat, tuneful, eclectic mix of oldies, country, bluegrass and swing, and they sing and harmonize real sweet, too. Frances, Sue and Stanley are good friends who have been playing and singing together since 1999.

First Sunday Arts Festival – A “National Arts Destination”

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 11:30 pm by Administrator

Join us in historic Annapolis, the sailing capital of the nation, for the July 6th First Sunday Arts Festival. For five hours – from noon until five — a portion of historic West Street above State Circle is closed to cars and transforms into a fun festival of live music and entertainment, arts, crafts, cafes and shops. The Festival, which continues around the corner into Whitmore Park and City Gate Park, is free and a family affair for all ages. It’s the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon outdoors surrounded by talented performers, musicians, and over 100 booths of very select arts and crafts. Plus several of the West Street restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by!

Performing in Whitmore Park on Calvert Street –

12:00pm until 2:00pm:

Angela Charles: Angela Charles is a singer/songwriter from Maryland and no stranger to the Annapolis and Baltimore music scene. Her favorite music style is acoustic singer/songwriter with a folk influence, which you can definitely hear in her original tunes. Currently, Angela is writing her debut full-length CD which will be released sometime before the end of the year. Angela is a friend to all, not easy to forget and she sings her heart out. If you get the chance to see her perform live, take it!

2:30pm until 4:30pm:

Pipe Dream: Old School favorites, the Pipe Dreams have influenced the music scene in Annapolis for decades. Well worth adding to your calendar, a must-see at this first Sunday.

Performing in Wiseman Park on West Street –

12:30pm until 2:15pm:

Lilly and Mudd: Smoky, sassy and sultry, Annapolis-based group Lilly & Mudd is drawing a lot of interest in the region. In both their original music and their remix of rarely covered tunes the group defies categorical genre. Singer-Songwriters Tish Martinez and Don Lamb-Minor team up with accomplished musicians Mark Chapin and Larry Griffin to deliver an acoustic sound with the perfect modicum of blues to put an edge to their music. Lead singer Tish Martinez’s rich, deep and urbane voice sets the character of this group. You don’t want to miss them.

3:00pm until 4:45pm:

ShamRogues: Labeled as ‘The Best Irish band to EVER play in Baltimore,” The ShamRogues have been entertaining crowds all over the East Coast since 2009 with their unique brand of Irish music and dance. From Washington D.C. to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and the famous Irish venues of New York City, the band has attracted fans of all ages and walks of life wherever they travel with their show. Having recently performed a series of sell out shows in Ireland, the band has blasted onto the international scene in a blaze of electric fiddles and banjos. Formed by banjo player and County Laois native Jim Phelan, the band features Adam Wyatt on Vocals and Bodhran, the internationally renowned fiddler Johnny Benson, Chris Marsheck on Guitar, Gary Peresta on Bass, Rich Boshart on Drums and 8-time World Irish Dancing Championship finalist Katie Fox. Not a band to stand around on stage blasting out song after song, The ShamRogues like to involve their audience in a fun, lively evening of songs and stories of Ireland, and God help anyone who forgets to clap along!!!

As always friendly pets are welcome and there is plenty of free parking for those attending First Sunday Arts about 2 blocks from the festival at the State Parking Garage on the corner of Calvert and Bladen Streets and low cost parking at the two garages at the festival on Calvert Street. We suggest that you arrive early and enjoy the Sunday Morning Festival Brunches at Rams Head Tavern, Stan and Joe’s Saloon and 49 West Coffeehouse. And step into The Annapolis Collection at 55 West Street- an art gallery devoted to Annapolis artists and photographers – where limited edition, signed canvases by legendary drummer Bill Ward of Black Sabbath can be purchased.

July’s sponsors are: Leaf Filter Gutter Guards, Kitchen Savers Custom Cabinet Renewal, and Champion Windows and Sunrooms.

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 9:48 pm by Administrator

Over 100 Artists and Crafters, Dance, Music, and Theatrical Performance, Children’s Activities, Too!

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the musical performers and entertainers for our June 1st First Sunday Arts Festival in Annapolis, Maryland. The streets and parks on West and Calvert Streets in the downtown historic area will be filled with over 100 unique artists and crafters, live bands, dance, street performers, and international outdoor cafes. The time of the festival is noon to 5:00 pm and admission is FREE.

In Whitmore Park, you will be entertained by Big Hoax which specializes in classic rock and folk music followed by Jasacuta. And, with a walk down the street to Wiseman Park, listen to Sparks, Raymond, and McCoy, playing an acoustic mix of rock and folk music for young and old followed by 3 ’til Midnight with its highly acclaimed performances of classic rock, blues, originals, old school, smooth jazz, and country. And, as a highlight for adults and children alike, Mike the Magician, Infinity Theatre Company and Steel Drummers will be strolling the streets to the delight of all. And be sure to visit Ashbury United Methodist Church at 87 West Street for musical performances starting at 4pm. For details and names of exhibitors, please visit First Sunday’s website at: www.firstsundayarts.com

This annual event began in 2001 as a way for area West Street artists — passionate about their work — to showcase their talents and has been an Annapolis tradition ever since. It has grown into one of the premier festivals in the area, attracting over 4,000 visitors the first Sunday of each month from May to October. Now in its fourteenth year, First Sunday Arts Festival showcases the prized works of artists and crafters employing a variety of medium including painting, ceramics, jewelry, photography, and fiber art in addition to celebrating the talents of experts in the field of theatre, music, and the performing arts.

The dates for the remaining 2014 First Sundays are: July 6, August 3, September 7, and October 5, each from 12:00 noon-5:00 pm. There is also a First Sunday Holiday Arts Sale on November 2 at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts at 801 Chase Street. Admission is free to all First Sunday events.

Plenty of parking is available at the State Parking Garage on the corner of Calvert and Bladen streets. Leashed pets are welcome. Attendees can enjoy Sunday brunch in one of the many restaurants on West Street — do stop by 49 West Coffeehouse or Rams Head Tavern for an early morning Live Jazz Brunch before meandering along West and Calvert Streets to shop and enjoy the festivities! And, at the end of the day, walk the brick-lined streets of historic, downtown Annapolis with its many shops, restaurants, and boats sailing in and out of the harbor.

Well-known for its maritime culture, colonial heritage and charming downtown shopping district, Annapolis was named one of the nation’s Top 25 Arts Destinations in AmericanStyle Magazine. Winning cities were ranked for the high quality of their art galleries, festivals and events and for their warm welcome to art collectors and arts tourists. With a population of over a half-million, the Annapolis area has a median household income 30% higher than the national average. It is also the destination of more than 4 million visitors each year, accounting for $1.8 billion in revenue. Maryland is the wealthiest state in the nation and the Annapolis jurisdiction is the fourth most affluent in the state. Annapolis is also conveniently located approximately 35 miles from both Baltimore and Washington, D.C. and its affluent Maryland and Northern Virginia suburbs.

The event is produced by City Dock Productions, an event management company with over 38 years of experience presenting arts and crafts festivals, music festivals, wine and craft beer festivals and other consumer product shows and public events. To ensure widespread awareness of the festival, the event is being aggressively marketed throughout the region with a multimedia advertising and publicity campaign via cable, print, radio and online, as well as through posters, postcards and brochures.

Each artist, crafter, and performer must submit an application to be juried by a selection panel that looks for distinctive concept, excellence in workmanship and appropriate presentation. The application along with details can be found at: www.firstsundayarts.com. A list of each Sunday’s exhibitors is posted on the festival’s website: www.firstsundayarts.com. For further information, call 1-410-263-4012.

The event is sponsored by Inner West Street Association, and, for the month of June, LeafFilter Gutter Protection and Kitchen Saver.

Include the September First Sunday Arts Festival in Your Labor day Weekend Plans

Posted in First Sunday Arts Press Releases at 11:37 am by Administrator

In September your summer activities begin to wind down as you realize that vacations are over and the daylight hours are getting shorter even though the thermometer is still reading high temperatures! But wait, summer can’t end before we all celebrate one more landmark holiday: Labor Day! And this year, Annapolis’ First Sunday Art Festival falls right before Labor Day on September 2nd. If you are in or near Annapolis, plan on making this outdoor, fun Art Festival part of your holiday plans.

First Sunday is a festival that celebrates many forms of art – with live music, entertainment, and over 100 booths of art, jewelry, house wares, accessories and so much more. It is a fun-filled, outdoor, free, family affair for all ages. And since West Street is closed to cars from Church Circle to Calvert Street during the Festival, several restaurants become outdoor cafes with perfect seating to watch the fun and people go by! The Festival fun begins at noon and goes until 5:00 p.m. – a full day of fun for everyone in your family.

Live Entertainment on West Street …

Studio 180 — will perform aerial dance routines from noon to 5:00 p.m. in Stan and Joe’s side lot. This is a studio of many dance disciplines from ballet and tap to aerial.

Jazz Band Masterclass, with Jeff Antoniuk– will play from noon until 3:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is an internationally respected jazz musician and composer.

Annapolis Junction Big Band — will perform from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Wiseman Park. Your hometown Big Band plays all the great swing standards.

Around the Corner in Whitmore Park:

Melissa Cox Trio – From Celtic Fusion to Trip Folk, World to acoustic electronic, rock to classical choir, Melissa Cox is an old soul with a new sound – from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Labor Day Parade – View it from Whitmore Park from 3 to 5pm

We hope you can join the fun and festivities on September 2nd for Annapolis’ First Sunday Arts Festival. There’s only one more opportunity in 2012 to enjoy First Sunday’s activities on October 7 – so mark your calendars!
