On February 23th, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) presented “Frack No! A Bluegrass Response to Fracking in Maryland” at the New Embassy Theater in downtown Cumberland, Maryland. The event featured Grand Ole Ditch, a local bluegrass band, performing traditional and original compositions. Before and during the performance, CCAN staff and volunteers were in the lobby handing out pamphlets and discussing the group’s positions on environmental issues. As with most New Embassy Theater events, soft drinks and snacks were available, as well as beer, wine and cocktails.
