Go Back

Richard fell into the well of Irish music in the mid-‘90s and was soon driving every session he could get into.  Richard currently plays in the trio Three Mile Stone with mandolinist Marla Fibish and fiddler Erin Shrader. Three Mile Stone released its debut CD, produced by John Doyle, in March 2010 and has received rave reviews.  As a first-call accompanist, Richard has backed up legendary Irish performers including Paddy Keenan, Tommy Peoples, Tony DeMarco, Gerry O’Connor, and Andrew MacNamara.  In addition to Three Mile Stone, Richard can be heard on Christa Burch’s CD “Love of the Land”, Radim Zenkl’s, “Restless Joy”, and Tipsy House’s CD, “Sets in the City.”
