Singer/songwriter/storyteller Scott Kirby will make his annual appearance at the Southern Maryland SA (SMSA)on Sunday, August 11 at 4 p.m.  This will mark the sixth straight year Kirby has come to the Solomons, MD, clubhouse for a concert.

This year’s Solomons show will be a little different than in years past because this time Kirby will be accompanied by violinist Emily Leader instead of the usual lead guitar player.

“It’s great playing with Emily,” says Kirby.  “The violin adds such a different dimension to the music.  I’m always happy when she can join me, and people in Solomons who have never heard us perform together will have a real treat.” Leader has played with Kirby on-and-off for the past decade.  She lives in Northern Virginia with her guitarist husband, Chad.  Both are members of the US Army Band.

“It will be great to play in Solomons,” Emily Leader said. “For those of us living inside the Beltway, it's the closest thing to Key West that we've got!

In addition to playing old favorites, Kirby’s SMSA show will feature songs from his new CD Sol Searching. Like most of Kirby’s previous music, songs on Sol Searching are influenced by his experiences in his native New England, as well as in his adopted home of Key West.
