Getting to Know Richard Byford
Richard Byford is a renaissance man for all time. He is a singer/songwriter/musician with charted records in several countries; an actor (graduating from the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art); a folk singer honing his skills in the pubs and folk clubs of England; part of the entertainment duo Richard and Mary for over 40 years; an emcee and radio talk-show host of the weekly "On The Village Green" and is a global “green” special events producer. He has also been a race car driver and a rodeo bull rider. Born in England, Richard has travelled all over Europe, all around South America, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Russia and has owned and run Byway Entertainment for over 30 years!
He has opened for many of the greats including Tom Paxton, Paul Simon, Sandy Denny, John Denver and Burt Jansch. 2014 marks 50 years that Richard has toured and entertained audiences and he has no intentions of slowing down or taking off his "traveling shoes." Richard performs with the knowledge of a rambler and the expertise of a true troubadour - his songs and performance will take you back to a bygone era in American Music and will arouse something deep inside your emotions.
