Country singer-songwriter and cancer survivor, Jim Callahan will perform at the Cornerstone Restaurant on the Square in Mount Gilead (11 N. Main Street) on April 28 at 6 p.m.

Cornerstone owner, John Gompf said he is looking forward to hosting Callahan here in Mount Gilead since it is home for the singer-songwriter.

Callahan’s first goal was to become a commercial artist and he attended the Cooper School of Art in Cleveland as well as Morehead University in Kentucky.

He taught himself to play the guitar in the early ‘60’s and began playing in bands and with friends while going to school. Callahan has been ranked in the top-20 Americana artists in Nashville, Tennessee for the past four years.

Callahan is coming from Nashville and touring in several cities in Ohio. Callahan’s selections will include some of his “Country Americana ” music. His most recent release is “Stories from Edison Road,” which is named after Boundary Street in Edison.

Songs from the DVD include: “It’s Time to go Home,” “Do you think?,” “Right Amount of Wrong,” and several others.

Callahan calls this free event, “a concert for my family, friends, fans and followers.”
