After some early solo performances and six years of working as a trio with two of his brothers, Rob and Sam in the 90s, Richard moved to Nashville, TN. in January 2000.
In 2001 he won the national fingerpicking championship and has since forged a career as a solo artist, performing all over the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, and Brazil, releasing solo records, duets, and ensemble records.
Constantly touring with a repertoire of fingerpicking classics, originals, fiddle tunes, Bach, Beatles, blues, Joplin rags, jazz standards, classical repertoire, and everything from pop to Sousa marches,
Richard has also performed or recorded along the way with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Doug Smith, Suzy Bogguss, Steve Wariner, Brent Mason, Rory Hoffman, and a host of others.
