Performing artist EmiSunshine is traveling from Tennessee to perform at the waterfront Muskrat Park in St. Michaels, Maryland on August 24 as part of the St. Michaels Community Center’s Concerts in the Park series. The performance begins at 6:00 p.m. and marks EmiSunshine’s debut performance in Talbot County.
EmiSunshine is a 19-year-old superstar of Americana music & plays ukulele. She has performed at the Grand Ole Opry a dozen times, has written more than 200 songs, and achieved top 20 status on American Idol.
Emi has been attracting national attention since the age of nine, with appearances on “The Today Show,” NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” “Pickler & Ben,” the Grand Ole Opry, and elsewhere. In 2018, she was featured in the Grammy-nominated Elvis Presley documentary film “The King,” alongside Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ashton Kutcher, Alec Baldwin, and other stars.
Muskrat Park features an expansive lawn overlooking St. Michaels Harbor and the Miles River, with limited picnic tables and a covered gazebo for performances. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or their own seating, along with friends, family, neighbors, your leashed dog, or just yourself to enjoy the concerts. Picnics are encouraged, with alcohol prohibited.
Raffle tickets, treats, and drinks will be available for cash purchase, with proceeds benefiting the children and adults served by the St. Michaels Community Center. Plenty of locally-owned restaurants, places to shop, and parking are also nearby.
The free concert series is made possible through generous sponsorship support and ends on August 31, when Maryland’s hottest 80s new wave party band, Saved by Zero takes the gazebo stage with an irresistible force of high-energy entertainment sure to rock the park.
Donations to SMCC and proceeds from its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels help the nonprofit ensure children and adults from the Newcomb Bridge to Tilghman Island have the resources they need. More is at www.stmichaelscc.org.
