Dave Ruch will be giving a special concert entitled “Old-TimeTraditional & Historical Songs of New York State” on June 12 at 7 P. M. at the Pember Library, 33 West Main St in Granville, NY.

When we think of old-time ballads and songs 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 them 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, lake sailors, canallers and more — collected through considerable research and interpreted for all to enjoy with guitar, 5-string banjo, jaw harp and more!

A professional musician and educator based in Buffalo NY, Dave gives over 325 concerts & workshops each year for schools, libraries, folk festivals, historical societies, museums and community events across New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio.

This Speakers in the Humanities event, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
