Dave Ruch (https://daveruch.com) will give a special concert entitled
“Traditional Music of the Catskills and New York State.
Friday September 27, 2019 at 7pm
When we think of old-time music handed down from generation to generation, we might
think of places like Kentucky, or North Carolina, or the Ozark Mountains….did
you know we’ve got it right here in the Empire State, too?
For this special
concert, Ruch presents and tells the stories behind the songs of real-life “Yorkers”
from days gone by – – farmers, lumbermen, children, housewives, lake sailors, canallers
and more – – collected through considerable research and interpreted for all to
enjoy with mandolin, banjo, guitar, jaw harp, bones, spoons and more.
