Two Old Friends, in Concert
Presented by Cultural Center of Cape Cod at Cultural Center of Cape Cod
July 24, 2010
Mac McHale and Emery Hutchins, Fishtraks recording artists and original founders of Northeast Winds, are once again delighting audiences young and old with music from Ireland, the mountains, and the sea. With banjo, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodran, octave mandolin, and heart-warming vocal harmonies, Two Old Friends tell a story in music of how immigrants came to this country from Ireland, Scotland, and Great Britain, bringing their melodies and instruments; and they show how the old time country ballads of the Appalachians are rooted in these tunes. A Two Old Friends performance will give you plaintive ballads and foot-stomping shout tunes; soaring mandolin solos, gospel sing-alongs, and story-telling. There is something for everyone. We hope you’ll join us.
