Rich started with music at age 4 with piano lessons, guitar and trombone in 4th grade, picked up the electric bass as a teen and most recently banjo about 10 yrs. ago. Rich has performed in numerous bands in Maine, Massachusettes and Colorado dating back to 1967, opening for various acts such as the Everly Brothers, Marty Stewert, and Martha Reeves. "In my everyday affairs, I'm always meeting new people. The music buisness is primarily a service trade, so I'm constantly coming into contact with new faces and personalities, which I consider a bonus in life. There's a passage in "A Course In Miracles" that states every encounter is a Holy Encounter. Everyone you meet is an opportunity to teach or learn and in my experience usually both. At this point, I just enjoy all the wonderful folks in my life, try to be open to new things and get the most out of everyday!"
