JOHN MOCK COMING FROM NASHVILLE TO THE MAINE LIGHTHOUSE MUSEUM, FRIDAY, JULY 25TH AT 7:00 PM
John Mock is an artist and the sea and its coasts are his muse. From New England to Chincoteague to Ireland, the Atlantic’s beautiful coastline and quaint villages, its wooden boats and whitewashed lighthouses, continue to inspire and inform John’s art. He captures in music and in photographs the heritage of the sea.
John shares this heritage with audiences everywhere through his elegant and unique concert presentations, and his solo CDs, The Day At Sea, and The Keeper’s Companion. Concert audiences enjoy John’s casual narration and storytelling, which enliven the characters and places upon which the music is based. In addition to solo concerts that feature his music, John also presents a multimedia concert that includes his own photography projected onto a screen behind him, providing a beautiful backdrop for the music. The Day At Sea and The Keeper’s Companion can be found in maritime shops throughout New England and along the both coasts, as well as at all major online retailers.
A native of Connecticut’s eastern shore, John’s work has taken him around the world. Widely sought after as a composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, he has worked with such notable artists as the Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Nanci Griffith, Maura O’Connell, Sylvia, Kathy Mattea and Mark O’Connor. His orchestral arrangements have been performed by orchestras throughout America and abroad, including the London Symphony, the National Symphony and the symphonies of Atlanta and Nashville. John’s credits as a composer and performer include commissions from the Nashville Chamber Orchestra with appearances as a featured soloist in a number of NCO concerts and recordings.
ADMISSION IS JUST $12.00 PER PERSON. FREE PARKING AT THE TRADE WINDS MOTOR INN ACROSS THE STREET
