Carpe Diem Arts free lunch-time performance series presents Junkyard Saints. The concert will be held at Talbot County Senior Center, 400 Brookletts Ave., Easton on February 12 at 12:15-1:00pm.

Four members of Baltimore’s own Junkyard Saints will perform a mix of Valentine’s Day love songs and Mardi Gras party classics, all in a New Orleans style.

The Baltimore-based JUNKYARD SAINTS have performed with such notables as Buckwheat Zydeco, The Iguanas, Marcia Ball, and Chuck Brown. The Saints are recipients of Washington Area Music Association’s WAMMIE Awards for “Artist of the Year” and “Best Roots Rock Group” for many years running.

With regular college and independent radio airplay across the country including National Public Radio, Junkyard Saints have played at some of the most notable venues and festivals in the country including the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and Pier Six, Ft. Lauderdale Cajun Crawfish Festival, Ft. Lauderdale Riverwalk Blues Festival, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, First Night, Iota, The FunkBox, and at private events for corporate and entertainment clients such as HBO, John Waters, Crayola, and Northrop-Grumman.

Bandleader BRIAN SIMMS was voted Musician of the Year by the Washington Area Music Association, and was nominated for a Grammy in 2009.  Keyboardist, vocalist, composer and arranger, Brian has recorded and toured with Rounder recording artist Disappear Fear, opening for and performing with Indigo Girls. In addition to leading and composing for his own critically acclaimed band, Junkyard Saints, Brian performs with many of the DC area’s most notable bands and musicians, including Billy Coulter, Patty Reese Band, Chopteeth, Squeeze Bayou and 2009 Grammy-nominated group Milkshake. Additionally, Brian records extensively; he has performed on over 100 CDs and he can be heard on numerous radio and TV spots, including Discovery Channel, HGTV’s Househunters and the Maryland Lottery.
