As part of the kickoff for the inaugural Maine Lighthouse Museum Weekend, renowned musician and photographer John Mock will present his multimedia maritime concert presentation “From The Shoreline” Friday, July 22 at 7 p.m. at the museum, 1 Park Drive.

From New England to Chincoteague to Ireland, Mock captures the heritage of the sea in music and in photographs and shares it with audiences everywhere through this elegant concert presentation. Mock performs original instrumental compositions on the guitar, concertina and tin whistle. His photography is projected onto a screen behind him and his casual narration and storytelling tie it all together.

Mock’s CD “The Day At Sea” can be found in many of America’s maritime museum shops and his concerts have been presented at a diverse array of venues including the keeper’s house at Atlantic City’s Absecon Light, the famed Guthrie Center in Massachusetts and museums and performing arts series on both coasts. Mock is 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.

Tickets for the concert, a return appearance to benefit the Maine Lighthouse Museum, will be $12 at the door.
