MARBLEHEAD — Singer-songwriter Chuck Hall will perform at the monthly coffeehouse Saturday Night in Marblehead (at the Church of St. Andrew), on Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. A suggested donation of $15 is payable at the door.
Hall began writing and performing his own songs while living in a cabin on Temple Mountain in New Hampshire in the 1980s, after studying classical guitar. His songs have been recorded and performed by many artists, including Susie Burke (“Angels”), Dean Stevens (“Love Comes to the Simple Heart”), and Jack Hardy (“The Dollmaker’s Secret”). In the 1990s, Hall was a popular folk DJ on WUMB-FM in Boston, and in 2008 he won the Rose Garden Performing Songwriter Competition, annually awarded by the Rose Garden Coffeehouse in Mansfield.
Hall has performed extensively along the East Coast, from his home in Gloucester to Miami. His recent travels have taken him to Atlantic Canada, where he has collected and written many songs based on the history and stories found there. Hall’s current CD, “Down at the Old Canal,” reflects his passion for his childhood home on Cape Cod.
Saturday Night in Marblehead is at the Church of St. Andrew, 135 Lafayette St. (Route 114), on the Marblehead-Salem line. The church is handicapped accessible. For more info, see www.standrewsmhd.org/SNIM.html, and https://www.facebook.com/satnightinmarblehead/.
