Rick Tivens emerged recently from nearly 50 years in the Mountains, not actually rural mountains but the Berkshires, where he first arrived for an eight-week music program as a 15-year-old and just stayed for nearly half a century. He's resettled now in Pawcatuck, just over the Rhode Island line, and continues to write songs virtually every day. Trained in violin and guitar, Rick's career has taken him from Carnegie Hall, where he performed as a teenager, to the Berkshires, to touring with some of the folk music legendary figures. He shares some music, and stories about Woody and Arlo Gurthrie, and Ramblin' Jack Elliott.
