Patricia Delich's Collection of Richard and Mimi Fariña Memorabilia

I've been collecting Fariña memorabilia for awhile. I love their music. I've played dulcimer since I was a teenager in the 70s and Richard was my main influence. This page is a collection of some of my Fariña memorabilia.

Richard's Relatives

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Richard's relatives -- both Cuban and Irish. We met Omar Lugones, Richard's Cuban cousin, at a talk he gave called Remembering Richard Fariña. Hosted by Friends of the Carmel Valley Library, October 1, 2011. With Omar's permission, I have posted an audio file of his talk.

In 2014, we were asked to screen Hearts of the Dulcimer at a music festival in Scotland. We decided to go early and visit Ireland. During that trip to Ireland, we met 3 of Richard's Irish relatives: Ownie Crozier (Richard's uncle), and Jim and Joe Crozier (Richard's cousins). Here are some photos from that trip. [Coming soon.]
