Mark Montijo

Mark Montijo, former Maritime Museum of San Diego Curator, Chief Administrator, and Vice President, now spends much of his time writing and performing original music, a career he abandoned in his youth. American Songwriter Magazine generously described Mark Montijo’s music as “ … brilliant songwriting, evoking that gentle, poignant place John Prine brought us to so often, merging the sorrow with some laughter …”, and his recently recorded song “Someone Can Fly” earned him an Outstanding Achievement in Songwriting Award at the 19th Annual Great American Song Contest. According to Raymond Ashley, Ph.D., K.C.I., President/CEO of the Maritime Museum of San Diego, “this concert is a project wrapped in passion, resilience, and mutual gratitude.” Mark has invited a few of his favorite local songwriters to join him for this special evening of original music.
