Martin McNeil at Stir Crazy; Tin Can Fish Band At Eternity Church


Martin McNeil At Stir Crazy


Martin McNeil performs at Stir Crazy’s Third Music Thursdays from 6-8pm June 21. McNeil released his first album for Warner Brothers in the 1990’s. Twenty years later he came out with “Martin McNeil & The Dissidents”. That album drew comparisons with Neil Young and Ryan Adams, among others.

In 2015 He released his first solo album “Silver Moon”. An array of musicians including Brad Pemberton (Steve Earle), Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams) & Jerry Marotta (Stevie Nicks) are featured on the record.

Now a resident of Richmond, Martin McNeil is currently working on a new record.



Tin Can Fish Band At Eternity Church


Eternity Church invites everyone to bring a picnic supper, and spread out on the lawn at 1200 Wilmington Avenue to enjoy the music of Tin Can Fish Band on Sunday, June 24, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Tin Can Fish Band draws from a wide variety of folk, rock, and roots material ranging from public domain to bluegrass to Americana and world music, and includes works written by band members.  The group entertains across the state, and Eternity is delighted to host the performers at this outdoor concert which will move inside in case in inclement weather.
