Free Concert Brings Vintage Rockabilly to Cambridge Waterfront

Share

A free concert on the waterfront on Friday, June 9 features the vintage rockabilly sounds of Josh Christina. The show begins at 7pm at the Sailwinds Amphitheater, the grassy area next to the Dorchester County Visitor Center.

This young, rising musician out of Baltimore already has three solo CDs outfeaturing his early American rock ‘n’ roll with an upbeat blend of rock, country, gospel and blues. His Nashville producer Kent Wells (who also happens to be Dolly Parton’s producer)told the Baltimore Sun in an interview, “He could have easily held his own with Jerry Lee, Mickey Gilley and Fats Domino back in the day. He’s an old soul, and the music just pours out of him.”

Although he’s only 22, he blows audiences away with the way he can play Hank Williams, B.B. King, Fats Domino and Jerry Lee—leading some listeners to ask if he’s reincarnated.

The Sailwinds Amphitheater is located next to 2 Rose Hill Place in Cambridge. Audience members are encouraged to bring a blanket and their dancing shoes. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

The Josh Christina concert is sponsored by Cabin Creek Animal Hospital in East New Market and the Wine Bar in downtown Cambridge.

The concert is part of an ongoing series of “At the Sail” events designed to invite the community and visitors to enjoy the beautiful public space on the Choptank River waterfront. For more information and upcoming shows, go to VisitDorchester.org.
