Richard is a powerful guitar player and a fine singer from Blackburn equally at ease with folk, ragtime, blues and contemporary fingerstyle. His driving percussive and rhythmic guitar skills are blended with subtle fingerstyle playing making him in high demand as a soloist and as a skilled accompanist for singers and traditional melody players.
He has a keen interest in the traditional music of the Northwest of England singing songs by the Blackburn poets of the 19th century and the 'Lancashire Burns' Edwin Waugh.
"...Equally at ease playing homespun blues or ancient songs oozing with local folklore, Richard is a story- teller, balladeer and mean guitarist of high regard. He's a thoroughly good bloke too..."
