On Thursday evening, June 8, three St. Mark's faculty members performed on Worcester, MA public radio station, WICN.
Jason and Sarah Eslick (a husband-and-wife folk duo known as Old Horse) and Chuck Greene (one-third of the acoustic folk trio Miller-McGah-and-Greene) appeared on THE FOLK REVIVAL, a weekly program hosted by SM alumnus Nick Noble '76.
All three have appeared on the program before. Jason Eslick has had a long career as a solo artist, with three albums to his credit, and he made his FOLK REVIVAL debut in the summer of 2011. Old Horse made its radio broadcast debut on THE FOLK REVIVAL two years ago. The Eslicks plan to begin recording their first album as a duo this summer. Chuck Greene (pictured at right) has appeared twice before on WICN, both times as a solo artist. This was his first time at the station in a group, although he has played with his band for more than two decades.
Old Horse (pictured at left, with program host Nick Noble '76) performed songs by Gillian Welch, John Prine, and Neil Young, and then concluded their set with a Jason Eslick original composition—"Colorado Moon." Miller-McGah-and-Greene performed three originals: Chuck Greene's "Another Day" and "Before I Go (Zinna's Song)" and John McGah's "I Carry You With Me."
Mr. Eslick is a longtime English teacher at St. Mark's and a past English Department Chair. Mrs. Eslick is the Associate Director of the School's Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, directing student support services at St. Mark's. Mr. Greene is Director of Marketing and Communications at St. Mark's. Nick Noble also works in the SM Communications Office. He has hosted THE FOLK REVIVAL for ten years now.
Several St. Mark's performers have appeared on THE FOLK REVIVAL, both faculty (Mr. Greene, the Eslicks, Theater Arts director Christopher Kent, assistant chaplain Stephen Hebert, and others) and students (more than a dozen, but most recently Justin Langway '18 and Charlotte Wood '17). Charlotte will be co-hosting a Woody Guthrie-themed show with Mr. Noble later this summer.
