Chesapeake Scenes to Bring Songs and Stories to Washington College September 4

CHESTERTOWN, MD – Chesapeake Scenes will perform at Washington College on September 24, at 8 p.m. in Tawes Theatre. Spoken word artist Capt. Andy McCown and "banjo man" Tom McHugh take center stage with fellow musicians Tom Anthony and Bill Matthews. The men pay tribute to the Bay through songs and stories of the people who live on her shores, telling tales about everything from the love of an old wooden boat to watermen working in winter. Chesapeake Scenes was winner of the Tidewater Folklore Society's "album of the year" award in 1996.

The concert is sponsored by Echo Hill Outdoor School, Penn State University, and the Center for Environment & Society at Washington College. Admission is free and open to the public. Tawes Theatre is located in the Gibson Center for Performing Arts on the College campus, 300 Washington Avenue. For more information, call 410-810-7161.
