The Calvert Marine Museum’s Waterside Pavilion is set to host a star-studded line-up of musicians for the 2023 concert season. The venue’s four upcoming shows feature country and reggae superstars, as well as other talented artists, and will take place on select dates from May to August.
Dustin Lynch, a Tennessee native and country singer, is set to kick off the series on May 26, 2023. The musician has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the modern country music scene, with ten gold and platinum-certified singles and over 4.04 billion global on-demand streams to his name. Tickets will be available for purchase from April 11, 2023.
On June 24, Ziggy Marley, an eight-time Grammy award-winning reggae musician, will take the stage. The eldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy has developed his own style of music by infusing reggae with funk, blues, rock, and other elements. Tickets will be available for purchase from April 10, 2023, for museum members and April 17, 2023, for the general public.
Country singer Lee Brice, who boasts nine number-one radio singles and seven Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards, will perform on July 27. Tickets will be available for purchase from April 13, 2023, for museum members and April 17, 2023, for the general public. Multi-platinum-selling artist Elle King will open for Brice.
Brett Young, who has seven number-one hits and two platinum-certified albums to his name, will close out the series on August 26. Young’s sound has been described as a West Coast-meets-Southern blend, and his songs are known for their honest lyrics and romantic spark. Tickets will be available for purchase from April 14, 2023, for museum members and April 17, 2023, for the general public.
The museum will also offer a season package that includes all four concerts, allowing members to have the first access to tickets, select the same seats for all four shows, and save on ticket fees. The season package will be available for purchase for one day only, on April 10, 2023.
