POLAND – The Poland Spring Preservation Society will present Two Old Friends Monday, July 7, as the next performers in its summer concert series at All Souls Chapel.

Mac McHale and Emery Hutchins, original founders of Northeast Winds, will play music from Ireland, the mountains and the sea. With banjo, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodran, octave mandolin and heart-warming vocal harmonies, Two Old Friends tell a story in music of how immigrants came to this country from Ireland, Scotland and Great Britain. They also show how the old-time country ballads of the Appalachians are rooted in these tunes.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. The concert series runs every Monday night through Aug. 25. Tickets are $5 at the door. All proceeds benefit the preservation of the Maine State Building and All Souls Chapel, two buildings listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
