The Chestertown Spy is sad to learn of Tom McHugh’s recent passing. A friend to all who knew him, Tom “Banjo Man” was a leading force behind developing the region as a haven for musical artists and a home for those who flocked far and wide to attend concerts at “The Mainstay” in Rock Hall.
His love for music and the access he provided for us to experience is his legacy. He will be sorely missed. Kent County is richer for his life with us.
In his honor, we offer one of Tom McHugh’s last interviews in The Spy.
