Rick Spencer Concert at Gold Rush Days, Sunday Sept 5, 4 P.M., Old Sacramento “Tent City” Stage

SCHS is proud to sponsor a public historic music program by historical troubadour Rick Spencer, followed by a 5 PM performer reception/discussion (for SCHS members only) in the Eagle Theater. Rick is known internationally for his work as a historian, researcher, singer, songwriter and performer of music in the American folk tradition. Some of his musical selections for this event will include campaign songs written for the 1856 Presidential campaign of John C. Fremont, early California explorer, one of the first two Senators from California, and the first Presidential candidate fielded by the fledgling Republican Party. The concert is free and open to the public on the "Tent City" stage, and starts at 4:00 PM.

In addition to his work as a musician Rick Spencer is the executive director of the Dr. Ashbel Woodward Museum in Franklin, CT. For more information you can visit Rick Spencer’s website at www.catfeather.com. The concert, and the SCHS member reception, are both near Front & I Street in Old Sacramento, on the "Tent City" stage. Gold Rush Days are quite the party (see sacramentogoldrushdays.com ), so come out early for the best parking opportunities. The event runs Friday through Monday, with Sunday’s hours from 11- 7.
