Remembering Dennis Murphy

01/20/11 10:00AM By Walter Parker

Dennis Murphy
The late Dennis Murphy of Plainfield, VT, was an accomplished painter, photographer, musician, scholar and teacher.  He taught for many years at Goddard College and influenced generations of students.  He will be remembered at a musical tribute this Sunday at 2pm at Plainfield Town Hall, featuring groups in which he participated: the Plainfield Village Gamelan, Still Friends, the Nisht Geferlach Klezmer Band, and the Fyre and Lightning Consort.

At 1pm I'll speak with Rick Winston about Dennis Murphy and Sunday's concert.
