Taylors Grove at Sail, Power and Steam
Rockland — The Sail, Power and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South will present a concert by Taylors Grove Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. Veteran country music performer Mac McHale and old-time gospel singer Carolyn Hutton bring a bit of the North and South together in their duo.
Taking the name from the little North Carolina church where Hutton grew up singing with her family, Taylors Grove performs in the spirit of simple old-fashioned American music that reaches across barriers of place and generations. With guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmony singing, the duo bring together songs McHale learned from his mother in Downeast Maine and songs Hutton heard in Piedmont, N.C., in the days when people from miles around would bring their guitars and children into the church just to wait for a turn to sing and play. Both educators and music preservationists at heart, McHale and Hutton seek to celebrate the music of old places.
Calling early for best seats is always recommended. Admission will be $10. Sharp’s Point South and the Sail, Power and Steam Museum are at 75 Mechanic St. For more information on the museum and its programs, call 701-7627 or 596-0200; send email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or visit sailpowerandsteammuseum.org.
