John Mock is an artist and the sea and its coasts are his muse. From New England to Chincoteague to Ireland, the Atlantic’s beautiful coastline and quaint villages, its wooden boats and whitewashed lighthouses, continue to inspire and inform John’s art. He captures in music and in photographs the heritage of the sea.
John shares this heritage with audiences everywhere through his elegant and unique concert presentation "From the Shoreline", where John performs original instrumental compositions on the guitar, concertina, and tin whistle. Audiences enjoy the casual narration and storytelling, which enliven the characters and places upon which the music is based. John’s own photography is projected onto a screen behind him and provides a beautiful backdrop for the music
