June 14, 2017, Vermont Historical Folk Songs with Dick McCormack.

    Our next regularly scheduled program meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 14 at the Greater Hartford United Church of Christ in Hartford Village, beginning at 7 p.m. The featured presenter will be Dick McCormack.
    Dick began performing his eclectic mix of song and commentary over fifty years ago. He has performed at small coffee houses, large concert halls, at noisy bars and at churches. Twenty-seven million people watched his NBC Sports baseball satires, and many thousands were regular listeners to Vermont Public Radio’s “Dick McCormack’s Veranda.” He has recorded nine albums.
    Dick has been elected twelve times to represent Windsor County in the Vermont Senate and has taught History, Government and History of Rock and Roll in the State College System.
    He brings his performing, government, and teaching experience together in several topical lecture-concert programs: Songs of Protest (“Yankee Doodle” to Springsteen), the Great Folk Scare of the Sixties, a Sung History of Vermont (using comment, historical and original songs).
    Join us on June 14. All Hartford Historical Society programs are free and open to the general public. This will be our last program before we break for the summer, and it’s one you surely won’t want to miss. Bring a music-loving friend!
