Not many times in your life you get to hang out with a classically trained
Folk and Blues musician – who has produced three live albums
and five critically acclaimed sole recordings !
Sitting in church a few weeks ago –
the announcement came that August 10, 2019 –
A folk concert with Rad and Ronny Cox – movie and TV star –
and a folk singer in his own right –
would perform –
And if anyone could open up their home
and welcome them as guests for one night
To let them know after church.
The day began when they arrived around 3:00 pm.
They had preformed the night before –
and after small talk –
I showed them to their rooms –
where they both rested prior to getting ready for the nights concert.
We did manage to it down for 30 minutes or so and talk.
Rad is very unique in that he also plays the Accordion
Which is dear to my heart – because my mother also played it !
She traveled to lumber camps and played music
My father played the spoons and my uncle Jack the wash board.
His music was haunting
and later I asked him how much he and Ronny practiced together –
Not at all –
have played together for 13 years –
Ronny lives in LA. Rad in Chicago
Ronny’s agent plans their adgenda
then they meet up at whatever airport they need to be at
and any new songs or music they just blend it together !
Born in Croatia and moving to the U.S.A. at a early age –
He grew up in Idaho and now resides in Chicago-
But also has a condo in Croatia.
He has played in Carnegie Hall –
The Kennedy Center
along with small settings of taverns on the upper Mississippi River –
To castles in Italy –
the Yup’ik villages of Alaska –
to being along side such greats as Odetta – Jimmy LaFace –
Shawn Mullins – Greg Brown – Ellis Paul to name a few.
His life is a adventure – traveling the World –
Hosting cruises to Croatia –
Spending time with his girlfriend in Chicago
and playing music with the Movie star – actor –
and known Folk singer Ronny Cox –
For 13 years they have traveled to little venues
Every once in a while –
a special time is presented –
This was but one of them!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
