“Ramblin’ Richard” – American Patriotic Songs Over the Ages

Thursday, June 29th, 7pm

New Ipswich Library

“Ramblin’ Richard” is coming back to the New Ipswich Library, and you don’t want to miss his show!

This interesting and entertaining program covers American patriotic songs over the ages. The hour-long program is “illustrated” with music and will include narrative introductions and descriptions of all of the songs played – their background, history, and relationship to the times in which they were popular.

Over the past two years, “Ramblin’ Richard” has been invited to appear at nearly 75 libraries, historical societies, and museums in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. A sample from his World War II program may be found on-line at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaOUioJsptE&feature=youtu.be.

Richard, a member of the New England Foundation for the Arts, is a retired professor who studied Gospel and American folk music and is an active musician who makes more than 200 performances each year. He tells the stories and sings the songs while accompanying himself on guitar, 5 string banjo, and baritone ukulele.

This event is free, but a donation for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville is always appreciated. This program is sponsored by the Stearns Burton Lecture Committee.
