Through the years, Rick has become known for his dedication to finding wonderful songs from diverse sources and bringing them together seamlessly to form a rich tapestry of varying moods, colors and textures in his live shows and his recordings.
His material ranges from songs that are of another time to songs that speak of the idiosyncrasies and beauty of modern life, from the profound to the comical, and includes a sprinkling of his signature banjo instrumentals.
