About Us

I can’t thank you enough for Poor Richard’s Penny’s extraordinary performance at the Revere House last weekend!

The lively period songs and melodies you play delighted our visitors!

Your voices harmonize perfectly. And the details you share with each piece provide fascinating insight into life in early New England. Not only are you skilled performers, you also look the part of itinerant entertainers! Your colonial costumes are perfect down to the button and ribbon.

I look forward to inviting you back to the Revere House frequently.

Thanks again!

Gretchen Adams,
Education Director of the Paul Revere House, Boston


I’m writing to thank you for the outstanding performance provided by Poor Richard’s Penny at the Old South Meeting House event for the private CN party during the Democratic Convention.

We had more than 200 attendees, including governors, and Members of Congress and we’ve had wonderful feedback regarding your performance. You provided just the right atmosphere for our event - not intrusive – but thoroughly entertaining.

We’re happy to recommend your services.

Thank you for such rich program of early American music.Your appearance, voices and instruments put us into a 250 year time warp, evoking a colonial American authentic in every detail. Everyone loved every minute! We hope you will visit us often!

It was delightful to have Poor Richard's Penny perform at the Groton Public Library yesterday. Both you and Larry had a wonderful rapport with the audience, and your program was enjoyed by adults and children alike.

You presented such an interesting and enjoyable blend of music, stories, and factual information about life in 1776. Just about everyone learned something new about life during that time period

Again, thank you for helping us celebrate the Fourth of July in such an enjoyable and meaningful way.

Geri Perry,
Head of Children's Services

Poor Richard's Penny brings 18th century American music alive in a manner that not only does honor to its traditions, but also recognizes both its historical fascination and its contemporary appeal. These musicians have realized the very spirit of these songs and tunes.
