Whether it be “Peace Someday” or “A Little Note” Laura Baron’s soring vocals tells the story. Laura is a three time 2014 Wammie Award winner (Washington Area Music Awards) and considered one of the premiere singer-songwriter’s in the Washington DC area. She won a 2014 Wammie for Song of the year for her song “A Little Note”. Her award winning expressive jazz vocals seem to shine on through every note. When I listen to her music, I feel her ties to the contemporary folk movement in her writing. I look forward to her filling The Stoltz Listening room with her warmth and emotion!
As much as I enjoy playing the songs I grew up with at Mike and Eric's in St Michaels every week, it's been a long (scary long) time since I've played my own material and I'd really like to thank The Avalon for giving me this opportunity. I'm looking forward as well to playing a few tunes by some very talented compadres with whom I've shared a stage,a drink and some great times.
Who would have guessed? Is the fledging Monty Alexander Jazz Festival nudging its way to fame alongside the Chicago Jazz Festival and the Detroit Jazz Festival? All three will hold Labor Day festivals, Sept 3-6, 2015. The big city programs have matured over three decades and mightily benefited from professional marketing arms. In contrast, the Monty Alexander Jazz Festival has only been nurtured for six years in the small town of Easton on Maryland’s Eastern Shore by volunteer community leadership, donated funds, and the artistic direction of the legendary Monty Alexander.

EASTON — If you noticed the marquee at the Avalon Theatre recently, you saw “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” featured prominently. Do not think for a minute that this weekend there will be kids from the mythical Putnam County on the Avalon stage spelling out words until the last man is standing. Actually, that is what you will see, but in words, music and dance as the Avalon Foundation’s Underground Actors present the original Broadway musical by that name.
The Avalon Foundation's Underground Actors present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on the weekend of August 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. Director Liz Clarke, a veteran of Church Hill Theatre, Tred Avon Players, and directing her first UA production, explains what draws us to community theatre, its popularity in this area, and what you are in store for at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee:
Hi, my name is Seth Wagner. I am 13 and going into the 8th grade at St. Michaels Middle High, and I live on the water, near Spencer Creek. Growing up near the water has really shown me how important the Bay is to us. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, kayaking, and tubing. Living on the bay has also shown me one other thing, the condition it is in. I've seen it at its best and its worst. At its best, it is a beautiful and serene sight. There are kids and adult’s alike swimming and boating, and having the time of their lives. At its worst, it is littered with garbage and pollutants.
