Special Family Concert: Mark Mason

Join the Charleston Library Society for a Special Family Concert!

Saturday, April 22nd

2:00PM

Mark Mason, a folk singer-songwriter from Summerville, SC, will perform songs from his album Charleston- Musical Portrait in a concert that is fun for all ages. 

To RSVP to this free event, please call 843-723-9912 or email dreutter@charlestonlibrarysociety.org

Published songwriter and folksinger/performer artist Mark Mason has taken some of the vast history of "The Holy City," Charleston, SC and written 10 original songs that encompass her past as well as her legends and folklore. And with the production of Rick Haynes, (Gordon Lightfoot's Bass Player), has come up with a unique and beautiful body of work. Mason's haunting and charming melodies and lyrics are accompanied by Haynes on Bass, Mike Heffernan, (another Lightfoot band member) on Keyboards, Warren "Wiggy" Toll on Guitar, Dobro and Spoons, Mark DeCarlo on Flute and Michael DiGiorgio on Banjo bringing each and every one of these songs to life. In sort of a Jimmy Driftwood fashion Mason weaves us back in time learning history's dates, places and events in a serious, yet lighthearted way as a teaching tool for young and old alike! The 8 page booklet comes with History Notes and lyrics making this an "experience" that we used to get when we'd bring home a new album and appreciate everything from the artwork to the adventure of growing with the music.
