BLUEGRASS BAND

A dynamic Bluegrass band that includes Bluegrass, Country, Western swing and Rockabilly. I'm also a Bluegrass banjo teacher and mandolin teacher.

DIXIELAND BAND

My Dixieland Band has an authentic New Orleans jazz sound. We once opened for Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog!  I'm also a Dixieland banjo teacher.

SQUARE DANCE CALLER

Richard calls square dances and line dances. In between sets he sings and plays the banjo. He also does rope tricks and hat tricks with the kids.

IRISH BAND

My Irish band has played at the Hunter Mountain Irish Festival and the JFK Presidential Library.

BAGPIPER

In full regalia for Irish and Scottish affairs, Richard plays both the Great Highland Bagpipes (a loud instrument for outdoors) and the Scottish Border Pipes (a medium voiced instrument for indoors). 

ITALIAN BAND

Richard's clear tenor voice and soulful mandolin and concertina playing gives this band an authentic Italian character.

HAWAIIAN BAND - UKULELE PLAYER

His Hawaiian band includes guitar, dobro, vocals, and various ukuleles. His repertoire includes 1920's tunes, and Beatles, Hawaiian, Swing, and Country songs.

 

SOLO UKULELE

In addition to playing the ukulele as an Hawaiian instrument, I also play Swing, Dixieland and Country style ukulele. Here is a Swing style Ukulele tune.
