Dave’s “signature concert”!
Lively presentations of songs and ditties from all corners of the Empire State. This is the music of real-life “Yorkers” from the past – important pieces of our heritage – collected through considerable research, and interpreted for all to enjoy.
Book the program as is, or inquire about specialized program themes centered around your region of the state or area of interest, such as:
* Songs of New York State’s Waterways
* Nineteenth-Century Rural Life in NYS
* Songs of the Adirondacks
. . . and more
“Each time Ruch picks up his guitar and clears his throat to sing, you can almost hear the bawdy timbre of Adirondack lumbermen, the tidal lilt of the Great Lakes sailors, or the lone, careworn voice of an upstate farmer calling out of the past.”
-Peter Koch, Artvoice Magazine, Buffalo NY
