Local Music that outdoor music could be offered at certain specific special events to be worked out. [My thanks to Bonnie Messick, who kindly dug out the newspaper accounts of this long conflict.] Despite such occasional controversies, music continued to be part of island life, as it does in many communities throughout the Eastern Shore. And the beat goes on. Just last year, the Tilghman United Methodist Church launched a new Saturday evening concert series. Offered every other month throughout the year, they have presented a wide range of music and musicians ~ Brazilian choro music, country blues and gospel, Christmas selections by brass

and vocal choirs, Broadway music, and some nice guitar and vocal tunes. This new concert series kicked off on March 28, 2015 with an evening of southern gospel music. Guess who? Yep, the Fathers and Sons, with Larry Gowe, David “Bunky” Miller, his son David Miller, and Tyde Mowers, accompanied by Pat Donahue on bass and Patrick Donahue Jr. on drums, and featuring young Isaiah Embert on the piano. So the isle is alive with music again. Now, if we just had some hills. Gary Crawford and his wife, Susan, own and operate Crawfords Nautical Books, a unique bookstore on Tilghman’s Island.
