"Holiday Memories"
with Ramblin' Richard
  — at Kittery Lions Club, 117 State Road

Join us to hear Ramblin' Richard provide an evening of songs and stories.

His songs span many years and include familiar American popular songs from the 1930s into the 1960s, along with music from Broadway and motion pictures, and some traditional folk, old-time, Gospel, and patriotic tunes, as well. Richard accompanies himself on several acoustic instruments including guitar, banjo, and ukulele.

His stories relate to the songs — how they came to be, what was happening in the world when they were popular, and what may not be apparent about them. The stories are told in an interesting, "... the rest of the story" manner.

A retired professor, Ramblin' Richard has a relaxed, comfortable and casual rapport with his audiences. A seasoned musician and member of the New England Foundation for the Arts, he studied American folk music as a graduate student. He was in a group that opened for the Beach Boys and the Lettermen, and this Seacoast New Hampshire musician has provided music for the sound track of a motion picture. Several of his songs are found on CD, including a Christmas CD.

This is also our Quarterly Membership Meeting.
