Chuck Cahoe is Playing!

Thorn Hill Vineyards | website | Lancaster, false 17601 event website

Solo artist Chuck Cahoe has been a prominent full-time performer [musician] for twenty-five plus years. His success has been vocal versatility, energy, professionalism, audience appeal, and exceptionally precise rhythmic interpretations. Chuck has an uncanny ability to emulate nearly all vocal styles and ranges, from smooth to rough, low to high, powerful to soft, and from the most masculine to a few female covers. His vocal covers, of even the most difficult performances, are unsurpassed. His guitar work is polished and rhythmically right on the money.

The number one focus is FUN. He loves the stage, he loves people, and that shines through in each and every performance. "Every song is a sing along and there's no such thing as too much FUN."

Concert experience includes: OPENING ACT for: Lonestar, The Hooters, Robert Klein, Badfinger, Pam Tillis, Ray Charles, Marty Stuart and more...

You may know Chuck as front man (lead singer) for a popular local band: Burning House (1996-2003)

Ramble through Tucquan Glen or Kelly's Run Glen

Kelly’s Run Pinnacle

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | No direct road access (see LCC website), Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

The remains of an old rocky road are visible where flat schistic rocks have been placed side by side in and beside the stream. The Conservancy’s “Kelly’s Run Pinnacle Preserve” now encompasses the Conservancy’s Kelly’s Run trails, the former PPL Pinnacle preserve and the former PPL Holtwood Nature Preserve.

Tucquan Glen

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | River Road, Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

A largely abandoned dirt road and well-worn trail meander through the heart of the ravine for nearly a mile. Occasionally the road and trail run together for short distances, but are generally apart. We suggest taking the trail down to the railroad and returning via the road. The round trip trail length is estimated at 2.4 miles.
