celebrates St. George's Day
Sunday 22nd April 2018 3pm
A familiar face at Number 39, Richard is a powerful guitar player and a fine singer from Blackburn who is equally at ease with folk, ragtime and blues. 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.
"Richard is a story-teller, balladeer and mean guitarist of high regard. He's a thoroughly good bloke too"
