Free concert June 9 topromote smoking cessation
Tri-State Community Health Center, in partnership with the Washington County Health Department Cigarette Restitution Fund, will be hosting a free concert at Widmeyer Park, June 9, 2 p.m.
The concert features performances by "The Real McCoys," which includes Hancock physician Matthew Hahn, M.D., on vocals and guitar. Opening the show is the Hancock "Arts Council Band."
The concert will include free refreshments and giveaways, as well as information on the dangers of tobacco smoke. All members of the community are welcome.
The "Real McCoys" perform classic county and rock music. The group formed in 2006 after Dr. Hahn discovered that one of his patients, Jim McCoy, owner of Morgan County's Trouba-dour Lounge, is a county music legend. Dr. Hahn, who prior to becoming a physician, had been a rock singer, began listening to McCoy's music, and soon began performing his songs at various local shows.
"Jim's music is great, and after listening to a lot of his songs, I began to listen to more classic county recordings, and discovered what great music it is. We started performing just for fun, but every time we play we get asked to do a few more shows. It's been a lot of fun," said Hahn.
