Peterborough's Market Hall Oct 19  

I will bring my trio to the Market Hall for a concert Oct 19, 2018!

15 years ago I made an album with my trio. Riley Wants His Life Back is one of the most critically acclaimed projects I have been involved in. To celebrate the anniversary, I pressed up some more CDs and we're going to feature some of the songs from that album at this show. 20 years ago, Out Of The Living Room came out and we'll feature it and songs from Live at the Harvest and Arcadia as well.

Rick's Licks guitar workshop

 —  —

Bluesfest School of Music and Art, 450 CHURCHILL AVE. N, OTTAWA, ON K1Z 5E2

During this workshop, you will find ways to compliment a song as a second – or even third – guitarist. A second guitar playing the same as the first does not add much depth to a song. Give those other guitars a chance to shine and add some interest to your song. Come explore chord inversions, riffs and rhythmic ideas that lift a song up while still supporting the vocal. Learn techniques that are useful in various kinds of music. This will be a fun afternoon for all. Please bring examples of songs you play that could use a stronger second guitar part. All ages are welcome and current BSOMA students are strongly encouraged to attend!
