In the days before television, computers, and the internet captured imaginations and free time, residents of coastal Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina impatiently awaited the arrival of the best entertainment:  the James Adams Floating Theatre.   In operation from 1914 to 1941, the showboat was an opportunity for an evening of diverting musical and theatrical entertainment. Patricia Samford first became in- terested in the James Adams Floating Theater while serving as director of His- toric Bath, the first incorporated town in North Carolina. This little town is where novelist Edna Ferber boarded the Float- ing Theater to conduct the research that would form the basis of Showboat, her most famous novel (later turned into a musical and three movies). Samford is currently the director of the Maryland Archaeological Conserva- tion Laboratory at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum, and is an archaeolo- gist by training.  She received her Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has formerly worked as an archaeol- ogist for the Colonial Williams- burg Foundation.    Other lecture venues include the North Beach and Chesa- peake Beach Town Halls and the Calvert Library in Prince Frederick.  For more informa- tion about each program, visit http://www.calvertmarinemu- Edge-Lecture-Series.   Press Release from CMM.    At the Water’s Edge logo designed by Mel Gallipeau Thursday, January 11, 2018 Ryan Forrester Band The Ruddy Duck, Solomons 7:30 PM Entertainment The Brass Rail Sports Bar, Great Mills 8:00 PM - 12:00 AM DJ RAY in the House Anthony’s Bar & Grill, Dunkirk 9:00 PM In Entertainment Tuesday, Jan 16 Ben Connelly Anglers Seafood Bar & Grill, Solomons 6:00 - 9:00 PM Trio Taco Tuesday The Ruddy X[ۜ B˜YYX؜]\KBX[H]YHYHX[ۜΌB˜YYX؜]\KBY\^K[ M•[\]XB[\XY\ ܚ[ [ۜΌ  HN B˘[\\XY B]\HY]܂]YH[H]ۛH \[و N ^YX\[[[\[H\BY\\YO\\YK][YX\[[\[Y\\B]YH M[HZHH]\&\X[H\ ]8&\X\H܈Y[BY\\Y[Y] \\Hˈ0\HY[HۛH[]\\\Y[وH[\\X][ۂوY[[[ TK\\X[Y\H\H[X[ۋݙ\H[[Y\X\\][HوH[\[HXYYHوY[\\[Y\H\YKH\KH[]Y\[X[BXYYx&\\\X\Z\XZHT^X]]H\ Xۜ\وY[ZYHY[XY\[]YKX]B[\ܝ[HوY\\[H[[[˰\YX\XH]]H[]Y[HY\\[T[\[\[XK][ܙH[ MLY[[][[K\Y[[Y\œY\\YHޙ[YY[ YH M܈\HHۈHp\\\Y]\Y\][ۈYܝ]^H [[BۈY H[ܝ\Y T[ۙH[Z\HH\وY[Y\\YKx&[H[ B[ۈ^H[[\[HY[YH[˰\ [[\8&\Y[ݙ\Y[\X][ۈ][Y[\Y\][ۋXۙ ]Y\\YH[\[\ۈ\[H\ M]ۛHZ\X] LZ[]\]H\و[X[ۜ[[HY\X˰[ [[K[ܛH[\[X]H[Y]\[H\Y\][H[BۙY[[[\K][\[ H[Z\HH]HوY[\Y\][ۈH \[ L \[B[\[K\^H[\ۂ\Y[ [\\X][ۈوY[[[[[܋[[ۈY
