VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION | MAY 8-14, 2019 AT HOME / ENTERTAINMENT 3 A book on grandparenting "When are you going to write a book on grandparenting?" is a ques- tion asked of me by lots of folks, most of who – no surprise here – are grand- parents. My stock answer: "I might, some- day, that is, but right now I'm working on some other projects that are taking up most of my time blah blah blah." Don't get me wrong. I've thought about a book on grandparenting, and I may still write one. If I do, it may con- sist of real-life horror stories I've heard from grandparents around the USA (and, of course, my advice concerning each horror). These tales of woe aside, many boomers are less than thrilled with the way many of their children are parenting. It certainly deserves a book. So, the bottom line is that I'm not going to write a "how to be the grand- parent your grandkids want you to be (whether they know it or not)" book. Traditional Parenting JOHN ROSEMOND See PARENTING, Page 6 BRT presents Haley Richardson and Quinn Bachand Saturday CUMBERLAND – Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., will present Irish fiddler Haley Richardson and guitarist Quinn Bachand on Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m. Before the age of 12, Richardson and Bachand were each touring with some of the leading artists in the Celtic music world, winning awards and recognition nationally and inter- nationally. They bring a passionate, youthful energy to the Irish fiddle tradition. The two have just released a new duo CD project, "When the Wind Blows High and Clear," on May 1. Richardson began making her mark in the Irish music world when she won the All Ireland qualifier in the under-12 age category at only 6 years old. Since then she has amassed a long list of accomplish- ments and performed across North America, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. She is the 2018 Fiddler of Dooney, 2013 All Ireland U12 Champion in both fiddle and fiddle slow airs, and 2017 All Ireland U15 Champion in fiddle slow airs. In addition to multiple All Ireland med- als, she is a nine-time Mid-Atlantic Fleadh Champion. Bachand's multi-instrumentation compliments Richardson's fiddling. Although Bachand plays a range of styles that include jazz and bluegrass, it is his talents in the world of Celtic music that have drawn the most attention, according to event orga- nizers. A Berklee College of Music alumni and Presidential Scholar, Bachand has also toured interna- tionally with well-known musi- cians including Canadian fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster. Bachand is also a mem- ber of the Jeremy Kittel Band. Admission is $16 in advance, $18 on the day of the show. For reserva- tions, call 401-725-9272. Irish fiddler HALEY RICHARDSON and guitarist Quinn Bachand will perform on Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m., at Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., Cumberland.
