Voted "Best of 2009 & '10" by Gigmasters. I call square dances and line dances. In between dances I sing and play banjo & guitar, & do hat tricks & rope tricks. I am also an accomplished storyteller. I have appeared on P.B.S. TV's Shining Time Station with Ringo Starr, on Broadway, & at the Kennedy Ctr. Reviews: "deftly offhanded bravura"-New York Times, "a real show stopper" New York Post. I can work solo with CD's, with a guitarist, or with a full band.

I have a playful style to my calling and often incorporate dance steps from musical theater and popular dance. I bring some unique and well honed skills to my work and am deft at adjusting my performances to the needs of each party.

My show, "The Spirit of Vaudeville" won the BEST CONCERT AWARD at the United Solo Theater Festival 2014 in NYC.

Richard arrived one hour prior to the event which gave him ample time to set up his sound system. In addition to calling the square dance, he entertained all with his singing and leading all in a grand march to the bagpipes at the end of the event. He interacted very well with young and old alike. A good time was had by all.

What a fabulous evening! Richard was willing to roll with the flow of the evening perfectly, and was a delight. He was a great square dance caller, and a fun and engaging banjo player. We would have him again! His music brought such a celebratory feel to the evening!
