On Thursday, June 9th at 7:00 PM in the Library Auditorium, the Friends of the Columbus Public Library will present Rich Patton. Rich, a former assistant principal at Columbus High School, is a recently retired educator, but playing and performing music is his passion. He sings and plays guitar, blues harmonica, and tenor saxophone. Rich uses a loop station, which allows him to digitally record his accompaniment during performances, adding variety to his one-man show.
Rich loves to play the blues and R&B, but his performances also include country, older rock n’ roll, jazz, classic favorites, slide guitar and special songs improvised for people in the audience. Bring the kids because he also does songs and games that children love. Rich has played in many venues throughout the United States and Thailand. He also enjoys performing his music in school classrooms.
