Summer 2019 Enrichment Series Lectures

Freddie Fuller “The Singing Cowboy”
Freddie Fuller visited Richland College Campus for the conclusion of the Emeritus Summer Enrichment Lecture Series. View the entire lecture and songs from Tuesday, July 30

We were inspired to ask this special musician to come and speak/play music from a Reader’s Digest article from November 2018.

This musician calms the dying and soothes their families. For decades, Freddie has performed before thousands at various functions, from house concerts to larger venues such as the famous Broken Spoke. Freddie entertained the troops in Iraq at the request of the commanding General. He has played for hundreds of assisted living, nursing home, and independent living residents. Freddie is also a frequent performer for Swan Songs, a non-profit that brings the gift of song to people at the end of life. Freddie plays at many private parties and ranches, as well as special functions like the Salado Education Foundation’s annual fundraiser, an event he has played for the past fifteen years. Freddie created and has performed his “History of Texas Cowboy 1850-1900” educational programs to hundreds of public schools and colleges. No stranger to the stage, Freddie has performed musical theater and appeared on local and national television and radio. He was one of the recently featured performers at The Bastrop Farm Street Opry. Check out his website The Singing Cowboy.
