The Agawam Cultural Council welcomes folksinger Rick Spencer to the Agawam Public Library on Friday, April 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Spencer will present an evening of historic songs of outlaws, villains & rogues as part of the council’s twelfth season of their popular Applause Series.

The concert is an entertaining musical voyage through the human obsession with misdeeds and evil-doers. Songs and ballads from as far back as the 1500s, and as recent as the 1930s are presented, with commentary, telling stories of notorious real-life “bad guys.”

Spencer is an internationally recognized folk singer, songwriter, and historian best known for his series of theme-based historical music programs. His tours have taken him throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe.

The Agawam Public Library is located at 750 Cooper Street in Agawam, Massachusetts and can be reached by phone at (413) 789-1550. This and all Applause Series events are free and open to the public.

Additional information on each of the Applause Series events is available at the Agawam Cultural Council web site, www.agawamcc.org.
