Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Birthplace; Vallejo, Ca. I grew up in the neighboring town of Napa, Ca. and traveled the Mid-West and Southern U.S. with "Lost Highway in the '80's with Stuart Duncan. I played and toured with the "New Riders of the Purple Sage" during the '90's and am on one of their CD's, "Midnight Moonlight. I also teach Bluegrass picking techniques and play electric guitar and other forms of music including Blues, Rock, Country, Swing and even some '90's rock....aka "Grunge".
Hi Evan, I couldn't help but try and give you a big shout about how I was always a big NRPS fan. Damn, I know you have some stories and memories to share with those miles on the road. I just saw NRPS last year here in NC. Were you with them then. Any way, It's great to speak with you. Thanks, Rick
Yeah I played with the NRPS from about '91 through '97-98? and am on their CD "Midnight Moonlight" along with several great guitar players and others like Norton Buffalo and John Pederson. It was a pretty fun time for the most part, played all over the East Coast all the way down to Florida and most other states as well.. "Marmaduke" Dawson died a couple or so years ago and David Nelson took the band back over. I was actually not at the show you speak of though. Good speaking with you too Rick...thanks again, Evan
