Acoustic, Rock
A Day Will Come - The McHugh's Debut CD Release Concert
The McHughs are a family band that plays inspired, personal folk-rock classics and originals with a flourish of harmony and strings. The title cut of their debut release, A Day Will Come is a timeless collaboration with a 20th Century film legend and visionary. This artist's cry for humanity from his 1940 film, The Great Dictator placed over an original composition by The McHughs is a powerful soul connection as relevant today as ever - a song and album of hope in uncertain times.
