CHARLIE AND TAD ARE COMING FOR CHRISTMAS! We have enjoyed Charlie Zahm’s Celtic music in the Fellowship Hall several times. On December 17th Charlie and Tad Marks will be at AELC presenting a concert with the emphasis on Christmas music with some Celtic and American music included. This time the concert will be held in the nave with a better ambience and better acoustics. Come at 7:00 pm to hear Charlie’s great baritone voice and guitar playing accompanied by Tad Marks on the fiddle.
Tickets are $10 for those 13 and over. Free for those 12 and under. Free refreshments will be served in the Fellowship Hall during intermission. For tickets or ticket information, contact Bill Baxter in church or at 610 775-3763 or email@example.com. Profits will go to the AELC General Fund. To hear samples of Charlie’s music, go to www.charliezahm.com or find him on YouTube.
Hope you can be there and bring lots of friends.
