With support from the France Merrick Foundation and the Goldseker Foundation, the Jewish Museum of Maryland has worked with the Jonestown Planning Council and Historic Jonestown, Inc. to build a coalition including the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, the McKim Community Center, the Carroll Museums, the Star Spangled Banner Flag House, Helping Up Mission, St. Vincent DePaul’s Church, and local residents and businesses, to reimagine the Jonestown neighborhood—what it’s been, what it is, what it can be.

 

We invite you to join us for an exploration of the results of this two-year visioning process, including an unveiling of the neighborhood’s new brand, a brief walking tour of key development sites, and a short presentation.

 

Discover Jonestown, where proudly we hail.

Join us for the members opening of our new exhibit Paul Simon: Words and Music developed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. We are very pleased to be welcoming the Guthrie Brothers to the JMM. In addition to being musicians in their own right the Guthrie brothers are a superb Simon and Garfunkel tribute act. They will help us open the exhibit in true rock and roll style with a performance of their act Scarborough Fair: A Simon and Garfunkel Experience.

 

Following the performance we invite you to join us to explore the exhibit and enjoy a light kosher reception.

 

Jeb and Jock Guthrie headed east from their home state of Wisconsin after being bitten by the music bug.  Growing up in Brillion, Wisconsin, they sang together at school and church gatherings and family get-togethers.  First stop in their travels was upstate New York, where they honed their craft in the club scene, and then later relocated to New York City. After a few years the Guthries were signed in 1995 to Next Horizon record, their CD, The Guthrie Brothers, was released nationally in June of 1996.

 

The Guthrie Brothers continue to write, record and perform,  their music has evolved from the roots rock flavor of their first record to a more eclectic mix that leans toward rock, folk, and pop.  With movie soundtrack placements and their songs recorded by other artists over the years, Jeb and Jock continue to create music not bound by conventional radio formats that sizzles with stellar harmonies.
