The Ticonderoga Historical Society (THS) will present a free public concert with well-known folk singer Dave Ruch on Friday, August 13 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“Songs of the North Country” is a musical journey through the Adirondacks and beyond,” says THS Managing Director Diane O’Connor. “Dave’s music ties into this year’s program theme of ‘History, Race and Gender in the Adirondacks’ and tells the stories of the many immigrant groups who settled the region, and the contributions they have made to our history.”
Dave Ruch is not only a performer, but also a teaching artist whose music is appreciated by all ages. He plays an intriguing array of instruments, including banjo, guitar, jaw harp, bones, spoons and more.
The program is part of the museum’s year-long look at “History, Race and Gender in the Adirondacks,” and is funded by a grant from Humanities New York.
The program will be held outdoors, under a tent, and attendees should bring their own lawn chairs. Reservations may be made by calling the Hancock House at 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
