Duo to sing about 'Heroes and Hard Times'

Sparky and Rhonda Rucker - performing artists who sing and tell stories in the American folk tradition - will entertain Fauquier County Public Library patrons in celebration of Black History this month.

Everyone is invited to the free concert, sponsored by the Friends of the Fauquier Library and brought to you by Bluemont. The program begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the John Barton Payne Building in Warrenton, Virginia.

The Ruckers’ program will span more than three centuries of African-American history, including slavery, the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, the westward migration, the birth of blues and the civil rights movement.
