Dick Richardson: Old Time New Hampshire Fiddler

Laufman, Dudley & Corinne Nash
(Historical Society of Cheshire County, 1992)

This book/tape combination documents the life of old time N.H. fiddler Halton "Dick" Richardson who fiddled in both VT & N.H. from 1903 to the 1970s. This book is alive with pictures of Richardson, old Monadnock dance halls, bands & many aspects of rural N.E. life. It provides a whimsical glimpse of the dance world of N.H. earlier in the century. The tape contains some great tunes of the past & reflects the old Yankee fiddling combined with some French-Canadian influence.
