Charlie Zahm and fiddler Tad Marks to perform July 16 in Lewes

Concert sponsored by Groome Church, Overfalls Foundation
July 12, 2022

The Overfalls Foundation and Groome Church will present singer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Zahm along with fiddler Tad Marks performing a free concert at 7 p.m., Saturday, July 16, in Lewes Canalfront Park. Attendees may bring blankets and lawn chairs.

“When the opportunity arose to present Charlie Zahm in concert this summer, we contacted Mike Safina, president of the Overfalls, to see if they would partner with us and host the concert in Canalfront Park. Groome and the Overfalls have a long history dating back to the early 1900s. Happily, the Overfalls Foundation said yes. The event will be a midsummer gift to the town to celebrate our maritime history and having successfully navigated our way through the pandemic,” said the Rev. Dr. Willard Crossan III, Groome Church pastor.

Zahm said, “I love coming to Lewes. I love its history and its people, who are always welcoming and, I might add, a terrific audience! I have been by Canalfront Park many times and often thought it would be a great venue for an outdoor concert, so I’m especially delighted to be performing there. And a tour of the lightship would also be very nice (hint),” he said.

The evening will include a pass-the-hat effort to gather donations for Family Promise of Southern Delaware. The nonprofit group unites faith-based and other community groups to help prevent homelessness through financial aid, lodging and hospitality, and stabilization support for families with children in housing distress.
