$14 advance/$17 door

A Bob Zentz concert is a smorgasbord of contemporary, traditional and original songs, tunes and chat, linked by the artist's philosophic perspective, thematic-logic and a strong sense of history, humanity and humor. Bob performs on a variety of acoustic instruments, including guitars, dulcimers, banjos, autoharp, concertina, melodeon, cittern, jew's harp and harmonica, and involves his audiences with shared choruses and related ideas. From traditional Celtic tunes and ballads to science fiction songs, and sea chanteys, from tales of "old timers and old rhymers", to musical poetry, each show is a unique testimony to Bob's vast repertoire and varied personal interests.

The Pyrates Royale began as an improv comedy troupe early in 1987. The four founding miscreants, veteran character actors at the MD Renaissance Festival, decided to raise havoc at the next festival as a merry crew of pirates. Surprisingly, nobody tried to stop them. The Pyrates Royale have since evolved into a musical comedy act. Now armed with guitar, hammered dulcimer, bodhran, fiddle and concertina, as well as a hearty chorus of hale and harmonious voices, the group has expanded its repertoire to include instrumental tunes, Gaelic, and even a madrigal or two. However, the crew has never strayed too far from its original purpose: to make people laugh.
