LEWISTON – The Franco-American Heritage Center on Cedar Street will present Mac McHale and The Old-Time Radio Gang in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 28.

The Gang performs traditional country bluegrass. Their mission is presenting vintage American country music from the 1930s and 1940s.

They present a rich and varied program that appeals to young and old with spirited fiddle tunes, gospel songs, train songs and ballads that tell tales of the Depression, heartbreak and love.

These musicians are winning acclaim from fans and critics for live performances and recordings of vintage American country radio music, according to the spokesman.

The musicians just completed recording their 11th CD, “Down Memory Lane.”
