Songs and Stories from World War I, 100 Years Later

Fri, Nov 17, 7pm (Whipple Free Library, New Boston)

It was known as “the Great War,” “The War to end all Wars,” and 100 years after the United States sent “Doughboys” to Europe we remember the songs and stories from the time.

This entertaining and informative program, will be presented by “Ramblin’ Richard” Kruppa who sings the songs that were popular and tells the interesting stories of how the songs related to the life and the times of Americans of that era.  Many of the songs have remained beloved to this day, including: “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” It's a Long, Long Way to Tipperary,” and “How Ya Gonna Keep 'em Down on the Farm.”

Richard Kruppa, known musically as “Ramblin’ Richard,” is a member of the New England Foundation for the Arts.  He is retired professor who studied Gospel and American folk music, and an active musician who makes more than 300 performances each year.  He tells the stories and sings the songs while accompanying himself on guitar, 5 string banjo and baritone ukulele.
