Russ is a talented multi-instrumentalist who is adding musical depth and energy to
our old songs and helping to create a fresh direction for the new songs we are currently
writing. He plays violin, keyboards, harmonica, guitar, and mandolin. I should
have listed what he doesn’t play! Russ’ first show as a Forefather was July 23rd
at Mt. Dora’s Lakeside Inn for the Summer Concert series to benefit the Lake Cares
Food Pantry in front of about 400 people.
In other news, The Forefathers placed #8 on National Public Radio’s Echoes radio
program’s Top 25 for the 1st half of 2011.
