Winchester, VA 10/18/14…Maggie & Jordan, a singer-songwriter duo with classical, folk, and indie influences, will perform a set of original and covered music in a 1 p.m. concert at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) this Sunday, October 19.
Part of the monthly “Afternoons at the MSV” concert series presented by the Museum in partnership with Shenandoah Conservatory, Sunday’s concert is free to MSV Members, all Shenandoah University students and faculty (with identification), and youth ages 12 and under. For all others, the cost is just $10 ($8 youth/senior) and includes the performance and admission to the Museum exhibitions and Glen Burnie House and Gardens.
Based in Harrisonburg, Virginia, the duo is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Maggie Nave and vocalist and keyboardist Jordan Garrett. Both musicians are seniors in the School of Music at James Madison University (JMU). Nave is a music education major; Garrett is majoring in music industry. Maggie & Jordan has performed regularly at venues throughout Harrisonburg and, following the release of its See How it Shines EP in early 2014, the duo promoted the recordings on a summer tour that included various venues in Virginia. Maggie Nave’s parents reside in Winchester and her father, Kirk Nave, is lead pastor at Braddock Street United Methodist Church.
For Sunday’s concert at the MSV, Maggie & Jordan will perform original numbers from See How it Shines along with songs made famous by bands and artists such as Norah Jones, The Beatles, Coldplay, Needtobreathe, and the Zac Brown Band.
Those planning to attend Sunday afternoon’s performance are encouraged to arrive early; seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets for the show will be available at the Visitor Information Desk beginning at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
Before or after the performance, concert-goers are encouraged to enjoy the MSV exhibitions and the Museum’s six-acre gardens and Glen Burnie House. The house, gardens, and galleries— including the recently opened exhibition Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art— will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Second Time Around features works by 287 artists from across the globe who responded to the challenge to transform discarded hubcaps into works of art. On view through March 1, 2015, the exhibition is sponsored in part by Trex, Shenandoah Country Q102, and Reader & Swartz Architects, P.C.
