"One of the reasons I am taking the trip into this area, is because of this artist, Richard Byford. What Richard does is so eclectic, so authentic, so very raw - there is no way to describe it. You just have to witness it personally. Please check out Richard Byford - "Rain", we think you're going to love it! Richard travels to the East Coast . Please consider him for one of your events" Kerry Gogan Productions. https://youtu.be/SmZwaqN_QE8
Looking back on my life, I think it would be fair to say that it has been a life well lived. I have done many things that most people only dream of doing; I have mixed with presidents, royalty, celebrities and the less fortunate in our society who sometimes have no idea where their next meal is coming from or where they will sleep when darkness comes.
The one consistent factor during all my life is that I have shared my thoughts, feelings and experiences with any audience that would take the time to listen to my poems, songs and stories. A sense of humor and the ability to make people laugh has always been a gift and the added ability to sing and write songs has always enabled me to visit many countries around the world and meet the wide diversity of people that make up the frame work of our lives.
