Bay View — Rick Fitzgerald will present "Autoharp Americana" in a concert beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, at the historic Beulah Brinton House, 2590 S. Superior St.

Rick is a folksinger/songwriter from Franklin who performs a blend of traditional folk ballads and tunes along with his own original songs and favorites by others including Bill Staines, John Denver, Joel Mabus and Stan Rogers.  An accomplished autoharp player, he is the 2009 Mountain Laurel Autoharp Champion, widely considered to be the world’s premier autoharp competition.

His CDS entitled “Crossing the Water” and “Living Up to a Dream” tell tales of love, humor and hope from the oceans & Great Lakes to the High Plains. For informatio on his music, go online to

"His style of singing (and) playing of instruments reminds me of the likes of John McCutcheon, Bryan Bowers, Gillian Welch and Harvey Reid,” said  Bill Bryant of The Autoharp Quarterly in June 2009.
