Red Horse is a folk-music supergroup comprised of independent artists Lucy Kaplansky, Eliza Gilkyson, and John Gorka. This trio takes the stage at the historic Avalon Theater to perform music from their eponymous album, as well as songs they have never recorded and some rearrangements of old classics. The group's music is chock-full of angelic vocals, enchanting instrumentation, powerful harmonies, and audible gum-chewing sounds.
On July 23, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s 18 waterfront acres will host a smorgasbord of cultural events for a one-day celebration in honor of the region’s rich farming and maritime traditions. Apart from the museum’s permanent armada of historic watercraft and hands-on exhibits, the festival will feature a dizzying array of live music acts and regional craftspeople peddling knowledge of their esoteric coastal trades. After a morning of decoy-carving demonstrations and nippering for oysters, step into the white boots of a weather-beaten Chesapeake waterman and refuel with a crab pot filled with delectable sea candies or a husk of steamed corn from a local farm. With a focus on how harvesting, marketing, preparing, and sharing food have defined the area's cultural communities, the festival cooks up a profusion of culinary delights that will reintroduce guests of all ages to long-forgotten hunger remedies.
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the stories of the Chesapeake Bay and the people who have shaped their lives around it. With 18 waterfront acres in the historic town of St. Michaels, the Museum offers exhibits, boat rides, festivals and more.

It's not everyday you leap from an airplane two miles above the ground and soar through the air at speeds up to 120 miles per hour. Unless, of course, you're one of the seasoned skydiving instructors at Maryland Skydiving Center.
Here, the team of fearless free-fallers introduce others to the thrill of the jump. Tandem skydives start with a brief training lesson to familiarize newbies with the free-fall position and teach them a few basic words in bird. From there, skydivers are strapped to an experienced instructor and spend several minutes watching other divers jump before boarding their plane. Once the proper altitude is reached, the only thing left to do is jump while the instructor takes care of the rest. After several minutes of adrenaline-boosting free fall, the parachute opens and slows both diver and instructor, allowing them to coast back to solid ground while taking in stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
Since 1948, the Layton family has farmed a parcel of idyllic land that has managed to steadily grow in size over the years. As the farm changed hands through three generations, so did the agriculture?both literally, and figuratively. In 2007, Joe Layton and his clan re-evaluated the operation and decided to take a risk: they would plant wine grapes. Three years later, the winery opened its doors, and the fermented fruits of their labor were proof that the risk was worth it. Situated on 1,800 acres amid the lush rows of grapes, the winery is also home to a tasting room, and visitors are invited to explore the facility during daily tours or enjoy walking trails along the property.
