11  911 Tribute Concert to OUR Military and Emergency Workers

St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 201 Mount Royal Ave., Aberdeen, 6:30pm. Featuring the world renowned singer/songwriter, Charlie Zahm. Charlie is one of the most popular soloists at Celtic music festivals, Maritime, Patriotic and Early American music events anywhere east of the Mississippi. With a baritone voice some have described as "coming along once in a generation," Charlie has become one of the most successful performers on the Celtic festival circuit, weaving magical moments of Scottish and Irish history for the listener and viewer, with passion for the performance and a chosen repertoire pleasing to all members of the family. A master of the guitar as well, Charlie brings an authentic love and respect for the music he sings; with dashes of humor and a light in his eyes, he will draw you into the stories of his songs! Charlie has become so sought after that he was invited to play for our Military in the Middle East over the Memorial Day weekend of 2014. Within the last several years Charlie has become deeply involved with Operation Restored Warrior, an organization that assists wounded veterans recuperate from battlefield injuries and experiences. It is from his experiences with soldiers in that organization that he composed “Prayer for a Soldier”. His Patriotism is evident in the lyrics that he composes and traditional songs he performs. Charlie will be accompanied by “Fiddler” Tad Marks; who has toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe with top-name groups and is considered one of the finest fiddlers on the East Coast. His down-home charm and easy-going style have made him friends across the country, and his fine fiddling on stage with Charlie ranges from hard-driving jigs and reels to the most expressive accompaniment for vocals you will ever hear. Tad has released several CD’s on the market. On guitar is Steve Hobson whose talent is incredible to behold. He adds such a rich tone to the accompaniment. Steve has his own band, “Sin City Band” who plays throughout the area and has several CD’s on the market. Our 911 Tribute this evening is to honor those who willingly place themselves in harm’s way to protect us and our families. Especially those who defend OUR FREEDOM; The Military. We also wish to pay tribute to the Brave men and women Firefighters, Police, Paramedics and Nurses who give so freely and selflessly to their fellow man, and upon occasion, sacrifice their lives to protect us. Please join with us in this moving Tribute to these Brave People. Refreshments will be available before the Concert from 5:30 until 6:15, and again during the intermission. Refreshments will include our now famous Crab Soup! We encourage you to purchase your tickets early as we do anticipate a large representation of military, emergency workers and medical personnel. Admission: $10 for adults. Children under 16: FREE. For tickets send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Tribute Concert, 201 Mount Royal Avenue, Aberdeen, MD 21001  Make checks payable to: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
