Recently, Rick performed two of his own songs, A Thanksgiving Song and I Fall in Love Again, which were recorded during the Portage Road Songwriter’s Guild New Song Showcase, held at The Coffee House on February 8, 2020 in Milwaukee, WI.
Rick also performs his song “Ears to Hear“, which he wrote with his friend Chris Straw (Chris’s lyrics / Rick’s music), and was recorded at the 2019 Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering.
On January 6, 2018 at The Coffee House in Milwaukee, WI, Rick was part of a group of talented performers in a concert honoring musicians who passed away in 2017. The concert raised money and collected food donations for the Central City Churches food pantry. The Root River Music YouTube channel, which has several of Rick’s performances, includes “Memphis Tennessee” by Chuck Barry and “Tinfoil Raindrops” by Bill Barwick, recorded from this event.
Rick also performed his autoharp arrangement of a lesser-known John Denver song (“Healing Time On Earth”) during the MLAG 2017 Board Members’ Concert, shown here.
