The popular Rehoboth Beach Museum Walking Tours begin on Thursday, May 16 starting at 9:00 a.m. from the Rehoboth Avenue bandstand.

The tour is a 2-hour gentle stroll around downtown. It costs $10.00 payable on the day of the tour to the tour guide. Look for the pink umbrella held by tour guide Jean Brolund or the black umbrella held by tour guide Gerry Beaulieu.

You may leave your name and telephone number on the answering machine if no one is available to take your call. The popular evening stroll, began last year, will be on May 30 at 5:30 pm. An evening stroll along the Boardwalk was a tradition for many years. After a long day of surf and sand, families would often take a walk on the boardwalk after dinner, sometimes stopping for ice cream for dessert. Recreate that tradition with the tour leaders. The morning Walking Tours provide general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach while touching on several of the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town. The tour guide will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. Topics covered are the Native people of the area, the Methodist Camp Meetings, Hotels, Railroad Service, and Horn’s Pavilion. Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimac, the Severn, and the SS Thomas Tracy, the railroad, the Belhaven Hotel, restaurants such as the Robert Lee and Snyder’s, and of course, Funland. Tour goers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or fill up a water bottle at the historic Women’s Christian Temperance Union Fountain on the boardwalk, one of the landmarks mentioned on the tour. There are restrooms available at the bandstand area. Anyone interested in forming their own group for a private walking tour can call the Museum at (302) 227-7310 to make arrangements.

Kevin began practicing on the neighborhood kids and was soon asked to entertain at birthday parties. Magic helped pay for his college education, and after graduating from Kean University with a BS degree in Computer Science, he continued to perform magic part-time at the local lounges and restaurants while at the same time perfecting his Close-Up Magic and Sleight-of-Hand skills.

Reid Belstock began juggling at the age of 15, as a way of overcoming gross and fine motor skill impairment. After one year of juggling, Reid began his first performing opportunity at Elitch Gardens, a local Amusement Park. From the very first show, he knew it was a calling. During High School Reid's Guidance Counselor handed him a brochure for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College. It was a moment that proved to be spot on. As a student of the famed Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown College, Reid found a balance between his love of object manipulation, and slapstick comedy, and spent six months training at Walt Disney World Orlando perfecting his comic blend with the Entertainment Arts Festival in 1992 with Director Lloyd Brant. More than 20 years later and over two thousand live performances Reid has been featured in Theaters, Cruise Lines, Variety Festivals, and Corporate Events both Nationally and Internationally.

This event is a Bring Your Own Chair (BYOC) event. Possessing an airy, light voice with a sly touch, jazz vocalist Kat Edmonson brings both the songs and the sensibility of the Great American Songbook into the 21st century. A Texas native and Brooklyn transplant, Edmonson forged her sound performing in small rooms and clubs before touring worldwide and performing with Lyle Lovett, Chris Isaak, Jaime Cullum and Gary Clark, Jr. In less than a decade since Edmonson has emerged as one of the most distinctive performers in contemporary American music. As a child, Edmonson latched on to old black-and-white movies while watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers fall in love through snappy, song-and-dance numbers. She also spent hours combing through her mother’s record collection featuring soundtracks to old musicals, jazz standards, and big-band hits. Although she draws inspiration from classic Hollywood movies and a bygone time, Edmonson does not reflect too heavily on the past, often saying in interviews that she is grateful to be here today, in this day and age. Her music that has that 1930’s, the ‘40s, and ‘50sflairbut her own songs are of modern love and life (and the occasional woe of technology with lyrics like, “Are you tired of being assailed by barrages of emails, and are pop-up ads destroying your morale?”Her first three albums all exude a twinkly throwback charm, taking form in jazz-cabaret, folksy indie, and vintage pop. Her independently-produced debut album "Take to the Sky" (2009) drew on America’s timeless Tin Pan Alley songwriters, Gershwin, and Cole Porter, and ended up on the Top 20 of the Billboard jazz charts. A critic for the Boston Globe called her second album "Way Down Low," one off the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard.” Her third, "The Big Picture," took greater advantage of her songwriter abilities. A critic for theNPRnoted, “She’s a savvy student of ‘60s film soundtracks, jazz-pop stylists, and Brill Building songcraft. ”The Austin Chronicle wrote that her songs emerge “fresh and dewy ... Edmonson’s voices wells and dips and weaves with effortless precision, arresting without belting.” Her latest album, "Old Fashioned Gal" is rich in affection for the past but bracingly alive in the present. In it, Edmonson tells a story-a classic Hollywood “movie” that took shape in Edmonson’s imagination as she began to write. These songs have all the feeling and the craft, even the entertaining bounce, of the Great American Songbook, from Irving Berlin to Joni Mitchell but they are unmistakably Kat Edmonson’s songs, taking the full measure of her own voice. The inimitable voice in which she sings is a musical prism, crystalline and precise, refracting and transforming what shines through it. The voice in which she writes is clear, intensely aware and to the point-an “old fashioned gal” in the here and now.

With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has scored multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards nominations and received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. As one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, topped more than 1.5 billion in global streaming and populated radio with such memorable hits as “Hometown Girl,”“Would You Go With Me,”“Your Man,”“Time Is Love,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Long Black Train.” With his newest project, "I Serve A Savior," which debuted at No. 1 atop the Nielsen’s Country Albums chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums Chart, Turner adds an exciting new dimension to his already acclaimed career. I Serve A Savior is a thoughtful gospel collection that finds Turner’s rich, distinctive baritone paired with timeless classics including “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art” and “Great Is Your Faithfulness,” as well as introducing originals including the title track, “I Serve A Savior,” and “The River (of Happiness),” written by his wife, Jennifer, and their eldest son, Hampton. In addition to the 12-track studio project, Turner has released a complementing 90-minute live performance DVD featuring a special interview of Turner with gospel legend Bill Gaither, a performance with Turner alongside his wife Jennifer and their four sons, and more. The DVD has been edited to air as a one-hour television special hosted by Bill Gaither, which will air on numerous networks across the U.S. and Canada. Turner is a disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists, and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Turner has been an Opry member for over 10 years and he recently reveled in his 150th performance on the famed Opry circle. Turner checked off another bucket list item when he added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, "Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood" was released in 2014. As highlighted in the book, the Hannah, S.C., native has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.
