Eco-Man 

      Richard McLaughlin is self-taught guitar player, singer songwriter.  He taught himself to play in the early 1970's.  Starting off with gospel music, he then learned folk music in the early 1980's.

      He was a long-time member of the Bucks County Folk Song Society where he increased his repertoire dramatically. While most of his music focuses on children's music, he also plays songs from Dylan, Beatles, Peter Paul and Mary, John Prine, Pete Seeger, and the like.   Finally, he has also written numerous folk songs for children.

     He loves to use his guitar in his classroom when ever he gets a chance.  He teaches autistic children in the Philadelphia School District. It's a wonderful way to reach children through different modality.  He has studied and uses the methods from Guitars in the Classroom to help reinforce the basics of education through familiar tunes and the guitar. 

     Perhaps the best thing he loves to do with his music is play for Musicians On Call.  He volunteers to go to children's hospitals and play for them by their bedside through WXPN and Musicians On Call program out of New York. 

I am a featured performer to help promote the Musicians On Call program in Philadelphia through WXPN 88.5.
This is a pilot introduction to a television show that I am developing.
Eco-Man is an original, award-winning, children's entertainer.  He plays venues as small as birthday parties and as large as outdoor festivals with thousands of people. 

As you can see from the picture, he likes to get up close and engage children. Along with his guitar, he brings scarves and percussion instruments for the children to play along with original and familiar songs.

Eco-Man has been performing since 1993.  He won the Pennsylvania Conservation Educator of the Year in 2000 for his work in the environment.
