RICHARD DYER RENNET
Tenor and Guitarist
Saturday Evening, January 13, 1962, at 8:30 Rackham Auditorium, Ann Arbor
Richard DycrBennet, born in England but brought up in this country, has been one of the most important influences in creating the present great revival of interest in folk music in the United States. For his concert this evening, he has chosen a program from his repertoire of nearly seven hundred songs from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and the United States. Some are folk songs, some art songs by anonymous composers or by littleknown or wellknown composers. In the case of the folk songs, the accompaniments are entirely Mr. DyerBennet's. In the songs written for voice and lute or guitar, he uses the original accompaniment. In songs written for voice and piano or harpsichord, he makes only such changes as are required by the difference in instrumental techniques.
Mr. DyerBcnnet will announce his numbers from the stage.
Mr. DyerBennet records exclusively under his own label--DyerBennet Records
