“Ramblin Richard”

Join us for an evening of song and reflection at the Goodall Memorial Library, June 13th, 6:30PM as
“Ramblin’ Richard” Krupa entertains and informs in a program called “Songs and Stories from World War 1: One hundred years later”. Richard reviews the major events of the war and sings the songs that were popular in the day, accompanying himself on guitar, banjo, and baritone ukulele. Further, he tells interesting stories of how the songs related to the life and times of Americans in that era. And the songs have remained familiar and beloved to this day. Songs like: “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “Over There,” “For Me and My Gal,” and “How You Gonna’ Keep ‘em Down on the Farm.” A retired professor, Richard Kruppa is a member of the New England Foundation for the Arts. He studied American folk and Gospel music and performs more than 300 shows each year to audiences of all ages and interests. Seating is limited.
