Historical Legends: Songs and Stories with Rob McHale
Chatham Community Library will host “Historical Legends: Songs and Stories”, performed by singer-songwriter Rob McHale, on Thursday, 3/16, beginning at 6:00 pm in the Holmes Family Meeting Room.
McHale is a North Carolina songwriter and storyteller whose songs can take you through a small town, down a dirt road, or on a historical journey—and then bring you back home again. Rob’s songs feature some of our greatest musical and folk legends: Woody Guthrie, bluesman Robert Johnson, NASCAR legend Junior Johnson, Billy the Kid, pirate Anne Bonny, North Carolina legend Tom Dooley, Jesse James, and more. Rob performs in the US and internationally and shares these songs and stories at a range of venues, including performing “The Legend of Tom Dooley” at the Happy Valley Fiddler’s Convention in the heart of Tom Dooley country.
Rob was awarded Folk Artist of the Year 2019 and Folk Album of the Year 2019 by the International Music and Entertainment Association.
This program is free and open to the public and is made possible with the generous support of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library.
