Richard Wood, who has blown away sold-out audiences around the globe with his traditional-born, fiery brand of Celtic music, will perform at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 20, at 49 Franklin in Rumford. His Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated and ECMA award-winning album, “Unbroken,” has reviewers praising it as some of his best work to date.

Richard has shared stages and tour buses with heavyweights like The Chieftains and Shania Twain and he’s played for prime ministers, governor generals, the Queen, and the Emperor of Japan, but he is most proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in the North Pole, Bosnia, and twice in Afghanistan.
