Welcome to the Citrus County Historical Society!
2018 - 2019 Music at the Museum Concert
From Bach to the Beatles:
Musicians Julie Adams and Rick Smith, will perform on Thursday, January 17 at the Old Courthouse Museum in Inverness. Can you imagine a full orchestra playing in your living room? Alternatively, two lovers flirting in a symphony hall? It is a little bit of both that you get from world-renowned finger style guitarist Richard Smith and his wife, versatile cellist Julie Adams – and they serve up so much more.
Their repertoire includes Scott Joplin rags, Sousa marches, Chopin, Mozart, and fiddle tunes. It ranges from jazz standards Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed and to Django Reinhardt gypsy swing, not to mention their intriguing originals. Richard and Julie deliver both, lightning fast barn-burners and beautiful ballads, occasionally spiced with gentle and witty vocals.
What people are saying...
“Strings of gold on guitar met strings of pearls on cello ... Richard Smith and Julie Adams rang the satisfaction chime at 20, on a scale of one to ten.” Jean Bartlett, The Pacifica Tribune, Pacifica/CA
“Richard Smith's fingers move so fast across the guitar strings that they're virtually a blur, but the music is pristinely clear … The heroes' hero ...” Kyra Gottesman, Chico Enterprise-Record, Chico/CA
“Julie Adams' eloquent cello solos deserve special mention.” Andrew Porter, The New Yorker.
