Chesapeake maven Janie Meneely and traditional balladeer Rob van Sante join forces for an evening of maritime music from the Bay and beyond. Commonly seen playing with the likes of Alan Reid (of The Battlefield Band) or John Connolly (who penned Fiddler’s Green), Rob adds his virtuoso guitar to the array of Janie’s originals, while Janie adds vocal harmonies to Rob’s traditional ballads. Both are delighted to bring maritime music, merriment and mayhem to New Bedford.
