  • Welcome to Rick's official website, hoping you are all safe and healthy wherever you may be. Thank you all for your good wishes and support, I'm looking forward to staying off the road this fall to build dulcimers and work on some projects at home. In January I have the great honour to perform MY SYMPHONY, orchestrated by Nico Rhodes, with 50 musicians and a children's choir at the Port Theatre with the Vancouver Island Symphony. Details to be announced soon!
    Island Sings performed Angels Do in their Port Theatre concert in March, you can watch the whole show at www.nanaimosings.ca
    Valley and I were happy to have our song Island Oohlahey arranged by Nico and performed by 67 voices in a virtual concert by the Nanaimo Sings Choir.
