Event Flyers:

Join us for the Annual Lighthouse Gala on Saturday, April 28, 2012…an evening celebration, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Four Points by Sheraton’s Billingsgate Ballroom on beautiful Cape Cod, featuring:

A Lively Performance by Neptune’s Car… comprised of singer/songwriter Holly Hanson and guitarist/songwriter Steve Hayes and named after one of America’s most heroic tales of the sea. In 1856, nineteen-year-old Mary Patten safely navigated the clipper ship Neptune’s Car around Cape Horn after her husband, the captain, became ill at sea.

Steve Hayes and Holly Hanson

Holly and Steve blended their lyrical and musical sensibilities together on their debut album Strawberry Moon, which reached #4 on the folk music charts. Maverick magazine called the album "A beautiful blend of country and folk from a talented new duo." The album includes several songs that relate to the ocean ("Lighthouse Keeper," "Ocean-Born Mary," and "The Charm"), as well as a variety of other genres. The song "Lighthouse Keeper" climbed to #1 on the folk music charts, and the official music video for the song was shot on location at Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.
