With an acoustic guitar, Richard Tillinghast incorporates the sounds of Appalachian banjo, distortion, bottleneck slide, and syncopation into his poetic songs about wilderness, adventure, and self-discovery. Richard and Tova Tillinghast will play at the Hood River Library on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m.
Richard began playing the guitar and writing songs as a boy in red dirt South Carolina. From his first professional gig in London at the age of 19, he has brought his humor and philosophy to audiences across the U.S. Since settling in Washington State in 1999, he has performed at concert venues, festivals, and private parties throughout the Pacific Northwest. He has appeared on nationally syndicated radio shows such as “River City Folk,” and has been invited to festivals from Arkansas’ Ozark Folk to North Carolina’s Black Mountain to Colorado’s Telluride Mountain Film Festival. Recordings include “Blue Tattoo” (1995), “Men and Their Machines” (1996), “Onehum” (2005), “Sweet By and By” (2010), and “The Door Is Open” (2015).
This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Hood River County Library District at 541-386-2535.
