Music at the Mansion Presents Arty Hill and the Long Gone Daddys

Music at the Mansion Presents Arty Hill and the Long Gone Daddys

Music at the Mansion is thrilled to have Arty Hill and the Long Gone Daddys play at the Liriodendron Mansion on Sunday, September 13 from 5 to 7 pm! The concert will be held outdoors on our beautiful grounds, with plenty of room for social distancing.

 From Baltimore to Central Texas, Arty Hill packs the bars and dance floors with his unique brand of modern Honky Tonk. He sings with an “‘everyman’ quality…reminiscent of Johnny Cash.” (Vintage Guitar Magazine). His songs – marrying the soul of classic country with the wry storytelling of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt – have been recorded by the Grammy-nominated Kenny and Amanda Smith Band, Alt-Country pioneers Jason & the Scorchers, Rockabilly Queen Bee Marti Brom, and Austin’s Texas Sapphires, among others.

 His recordings have topped the FAR (Freeform American Roots) chart, and his songs have appeared in two seasons of “Gun it with Bennie Spies” on the Sportsman Channel and in the 2017 movie “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” starring Elijah Wood. Arty is also co-founder of the Hank Williams Songwriting Workshop in Montgomery, AL, and was a 2018 instructor at the Augusta Heritage Center’s Classic Country Week in Elkins, WVa. His latest recording, “Live: Church on Saturday Night,” is a shack-shaking live recording of Arty and his top notch band, the Long Gone Daddys (Dave Chappell – guitar, Lynn Kasdorf – pedal steel, Ira Gitlin – upright bass, Ed Hough – drums).

Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs, and enjoy the music of this multi-faceted performer on the beautiful grounds of the historic Liriodendron Mansion!

Music at the Mansion Presents Josh Christina

Music at the Mansion Presents Josh Christina

Music at the Mansion is excited to welcome Josh Christina to his first show at the Liriodendron Mansion on Sunday, August 23 from 5 to 8 pm! The concert will be held outdoors on our beautiful grounds, with plenty of room for social distancing!

Called a “mix between Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Elton John”, Josh’s energetic brand of 50’s rock n roll makes the classics sound brand new. Josh Christina will restore your confidence in the ability of young musicians to carry on the great tradition of rock’s pioneers. Josh writes his own music, refurbishes the classics, and plays a mean piano.  Josh Christina is a rock n roll revivalist whose music provides a bridge across generational lines by going backward to move into the future.

The piano aficionado can be heard on his two Nashville-recorded albums, “Good Old Love” and “I’m 21″, both produced by Kent Wells. His album, “Instincts” was recorded at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis, co produced by two time Grammy award winner Jon Carroll (Starland Vocal band.) He followed that up with the single ”Let’s Get Woke” in 2019, and has just released his latest single “Rockstar”.

Trailblazing Women of Architecture in Maryland

Trailblazing Women of Architecture in Maryland

In honor of the Year of the Woman in Maryland and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, the Liriodendron Foundation is hosting an exhibit through August 26 that celebrates women who contributed their design talent to Maryland’s built environment at a time when few women were in the profession.  Many of the women practiced through the lean years of the Depression and World War II, designing buildings in Maryland and across the country, serving as a story of perseverance and determination.  

Also showcased in the Liriodendron Mansion’s galleries is artwork and architectural drawings of Poldi Hirsch (1926-1987), a Havre de Grace resident and the first woman of the Baltimore Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) who owned her own firm.  Over 25 modern structures still stand in Harford County as a testament to her professional perseverance and pioneering legacy. 

A special online presentation will be given on Wednesday, August 12 at 7 pm by the curator of the exhibit, Jillian Storms, AIA.  Ms Storms received BAF’s Roger Redden Award and Preservation Maryland’s George T. Harrison Volunteer Award in recognition of her extensive work in organizing the research effort and curating the traveling exhibit.  She has a Master of Architecture from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor of Urban Studies and Planning from Goucher College. 

Click here to register for the event. 

The exhibit is on view free to the public from July 3 to August 26, 2020 during Open House hours each Wednesday from 1 to 7 pm, and on Sunday, August 9th from 11 am to 3 pm, or by appointment by contacting 410.879.4424 or info@liriodendron.com.

 The travelling exhibit was sponsored by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) and developed by members of the Women in Architecture (now EQUITY) Committee of AIA Baltimore, with research assistance from architecture students at Morgan State University.

The presentation is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Dresher Foundation.
