Richard Berman-

Richard is a singer/songwriter with a gift to write songs that tell moving and true stories while adding humor and wit to his performances.  His experiences as a husband, therapist, teacher father and son have allowed him to write songs of people and their situations in direct and compelling ways. He has won numerous songwriting contests around the country.  His six CDs have been on many folk DJs’ lists as top releases in their respective years.


Richard was accompanied by Dan Levitt and Gary Lynch, two wonderful southern California musicians. Dan plays a unique style of banjo that has the instrument sounding lush and harp-like. His sound can be heard on his newly released and widely praised CD, “Fancy That!”.  Gary plays numerous instruments and sings in his Ventura County-based band, KG. For this show, however, he provided his excellent bass accompaniment and an occasional vocal harmony for Richard’s songs.
