Leach Library to Host “Folk Music: Singing History” with Random Acts of Harmony

On Thursday, March 10 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library will host the musical program “Folk Music: Singing History” with Random Acts of Harmony. The acoustic folk trio will treat listeners to a variety of folk songs and the compelling stories behind their origins.

Random Acts of Harmony is comprised of band members Randy Filliger, Rob Becker and Dick Kruppa. They perform traditional and contemporary folk tunes sung with acoustic guitar, 5-string banjo, and stand-up bass accompaniment. Their concerts have been featured throughout New England at a variety of venues, including fairs and festivals, coffeehouses, music clubs, and libraries.

In this program, the trio will present an evening of musical entertainment embellished with historical facts. Before each song is performed, Seacoast actor Rob Becker will tell the interesting events and issues that led to its writing. Please join us for these songs of triumph, sorrow and tragedy as they are performed in beautiful three part harmony with acoustic accompaniment.

The event is free and open to the public, and will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
