Old Songs, Old Blues, Old Bay
A lively evening of song from song collector, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (banjo, blues harp) and Mainstay founder and former Director Tom McHugh. There will be old songs – some of Tom’s favorite songs from the folk revival, of the 60-s and early 70's, songs from legendary sources such as Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton along with commentary about those times. There will be old blues - Delta and early Chicago blues from the likes of Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton and Lightning Hopkins. And of course, there will be Old Bay, songs about the Chesapeake including some of Tom’s best loved originals. Tom will be joined by his musical pals Bill Matthews on guitar and vocals, and Tom Anthony on bass are their very special guest, the award-winning blues guitarist Guthrie Matthews.
