The Songs of Bob Dylan/ Hungry for Music Benefit
The Songs of Bob Dylan features Chatham Street, Tim Bracken, Willie Barry, Doug Alan Wilcox and Rod Deacey.
Hungry for Music is a Washington charity that donates musical instruments to children, supporting music education and cultural enrichment, both in the United States and abroad; it donated more than 500 instruments in 2011. Donations of musical instruments, in any condition, will be accepted at this show.
Chatham Street, based near Winchester, Va., is the duo of Christal Prout (vocals and guitar) and Peter Prout (guitars, including bass and resonator). Their New Americana sound carries multiple musical influences, from old-time gospel and bluegrass to jazz and rootsy-folk. Christal’s vocals are a cross between Celtic and southern down-home and soar over Peter’s tasteful vintage guitar, sounding just like her Scottish-Appalachian heritage. Natives of the Detroit area, the Prouts have a long music history, performing live and in studios. Songs from Chatham Street’s debut CD, "Last One Out," released in October 2010, have garnered 13 songwriting awards. Their second CD, "All That Mattered," was released in September.
Timothy Bracken delivers a rich performance for the rock, pop, and folk palate. A mainstay of the Washington and Baltimore areas, Bracken's instrumental versatility and wide range of material have made him a sought-out talent, extending him the opportunity to work with other artists and bands from Peter Case to the Egg Babies Orchestra.
Willie Barry, though only 17, is known for his inspiring performances of the complex and poetic works of the legendary Bob Dylan. Recently, he has been influenced by many other folk and country artists, and has written and published his own collection of music. Baker also believes in giving back to his community, volunteerng to perform for great causes such as the American Red Cross (to help Haiti), Frederick County (Md.) Hospice and Habitat for Humanity.
Rod Deacey is a singer/songwriter and a longtime supporter of the acoustic music scene in Frederick, Md. He is known for his strong voice (and British accent) and his array of beautiful guitars.
