Irish and American music. This includes: Irish, Country, Bluegrass, Dixieland, Swing and Oldies. We have played at the Hunter Mountain Irish Festival, the New Jersey Kilt Festival, and the JFK Presidential Library and Museum.
COUNTRY / 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 / SWING 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.
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).
Richard's clear tenor voice and soulful mandolin and concertina playing give 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.
