Richie Havens - Words and Music - 2008
Richie Havens with Dennis Elsas at WFUV
With the album Nobody Left To Crown, Richie Havens continues to speak loudly in song, using his words and those of other writers to discuss the frustrations, hopes and ways of the world.
Is he a folk singer though? It's a question Richie has faced most of his career, and it was just one topic of conversation when he joined me in Studio A. Richie also performed a few songs live with guitarist Walter Parks.
