Richard making the rounds

I have no idea what’s going to be happening amid the storm, but if plans hold, here’s a little update on Friday’s Coppertop happenings:
Brian Richard
Brian Richard is mixing good tunes with good work.

The popular North County singer and guitarist is the go-to guy when the Greg Hill Foundation needs entertainment. Unsurprisingly, Richard is also a frequent performer for events hosted by WAAF-FM (107.3), the FM rocker where Hill is the morning-drive guy. And that’s the case Friday when ’AAF presents Richard in the Coppertop starting at 8 p.m.

The Foundation works directly with families in need, and the fund raisers typically are who’s-who gatherings of Boston sports and entertainment stars. Though, Richard isn’t one to get star struck; Richard after all welcomed former Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page on stage for impromptu collaborations during a WXLO Christmas party.

Richard released a CD of his songs a few years back and has a stack of pop and rock faves. His latest endeavor_ which sounds like a player’s dream_ is working R&D at Giles Guitar in Franklin. When Richard plays with his trio, he busts out a Giles electric (and he’ll have one of those gigs in July playing a Boston Harbor cruise for the Hill Foundation… see how this all loops?) .

But on his own, with acoustic guitar, Richard ably gets the job done.
