Hi, All!

I'm a long-time player and songwriter now based in Rosendale New York, originally from Florida, and I've got a few tunes to share.  Buckets full!  Thanks for coming to visit.

 I was getting ready to play at the Florida Folk Festival last May,  in White Springs, Florida, right on the Suwannee River.  So I called up the person in charge, to find out if it might be possible to go swimming, or if there might be gators.

She laughed, and said:  "Well, let me put it to you this way - it's been raining more than usual lately, and the river is running a little high, and a little faster than usual. If you think you can out-swim those gators, be my guest!"  I said:  "Well alright then, that answers the question!"

It's an interesting time to be in this country; but maybe life is a test of love, and we've just got to keep on keepin' on.  I'm so grateful that I get to be one of those that puts it into song.



Ryc ("Rick") Ward


P.S.  In case anyone wants to know, that's a Welsh spelling for my name, 'cause I'm English, Irish, and Scottish.
