Chuck Durang -Feb 18 Open Mic Feature with Dick Custer

Chuck Durang says he has been commiting folk music since just after the invention of the guitar.

He is "one of the founders of Chicago's Old Town entertainment area," as leader of the Small World Singers, and has been the prime mover in a number of other groups including The Sundowners, Just Four, Harmony Gritz, and The Visitors. He organized the 1963 Midwest Folk Festival, and produced an Army Special Services touring show, This Land Is Your Land.

His vocals are enhanced by virtuoso execution on the six- and twelve-string guitar and five-string banjo, goofy and/or informative song introductions and other tall tales, and a selection of tunes both familiar and new to any given audience.

Chuck will be aided and abetted by the talents of Dick Custer on the mandolin, dobro and perhaps other instruments.
