Playing Music Professionally since 1981

Watch this video clip , or this one.

Randall Richards has been playing piano and guitar professionally for over 25 years, and started learning the piano when he was five. After taking a break from traditional piano lessons at 10, Randy started playing piano in his own style at age 12, which led to playing professionally when he was 20 years old living and working in Austria.

Says Richards,"When I play CoffeeHouses, or venues such as a listening room I do a mix of originals (a variety of humorous, folk, and uplifting songs) and covers such as Mr. Jones from the Counting Crows, artists such as Tom Petty, and Jimmy Buffet, John Prine, and lesser known covers and songs that I've picked up over the years from my travels from Newfoundland to Washington State. I do about 70% guitar, 30% Piano, vocals, instrumentals, and play the Native American flute as well as, the zampona accompanied by piano or guitar. I like to have a percussionist with whom I can improvise, and I enjoy collaborating in the world music genre." He adds, "People seem to enjoy my vocals these days. I've had some training and voice coaching." His Native American Flute music is relaxing and calming, and he loves improvising with drummers.

Richards has played professionally throughout the Western US, Northern New England and the Europe. He is the founder of the Leavenworth Community Coffeehouse in Washington State, which he launched in 1994, and is still attracting audiences and performers from throughout the Pacific Northwest and the U.S.

In 2004 he started the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse which continues to gain popularity with musicians and audiences alike and provides a listening room venue for amateurs and professionals in central New Hampshire. The Sunapee Coffeehouse is the winner of the New Hampshire Magazine's Best of 2005 Open Mics.

He writes music on the piano, guitar and Native American flute and Zampona as well as synthesizer. While he has laid down a number of tracks both instrumentals and folk, he's not done a recording quite yet. His piano style has been compared to that of George Winston. He'll often makes up melodies while in the middle of a performance.

Three Performance Types:
Options for events or venues:

1) World Music

One of Randall's favorite performance styles is world instrumental music- He follows a drum beat set by two or three accompanying drummers, then plays the Native American Flute, Zampona, Grand Piano or Synth. Percussion is the driving force, with his other instuments following, to create a sense of presence and energy for the audience.

Mandala was formed to this end, and although the members have changed, the concept continues. Various drummers and musicians and vocalists accompany Randy at CoffeeHouses and concerts, see below.

2) Soloist on Grand Piano

Randall's first instrument is the piano and what he always comes back to in the end. He can play a range from classical, to jazz to pop, ragtime and old time tunes. Mostly he prefers original improv in the style of George Winston. In 1984, when Randy was performing at Paradise Inn at Mt. Rainier, someone from the the audience told him he sounded like Mr. Winston. Randy, having not heard of him, replied, "Who's that?".

3) Singer/Songwriter: Original Folk
on Guitar:

Randall won a leadership award while leading programs for Outward Bound Professional, and used the cash to purchase a Taylor gutar, which he considers "at least half of his act." His orginals carry a message of peace, hope and love, a bit of traveling, and of course, humor. He has written about 40+ originals, His first few were written on the coast of France, and others in Washington State, Ecuador, Peru, and even New Hampshire. While working for Outward Bound he carried a small guitar on his backpack and shares a few ballads from his backcountry days.
While he plays mostly originals, his covers range from Tom Petty and John Prine, to Counting Crows and the Traveling Wilburys although he enjoys performing numbers from lesser known artists such as Kevin Jones/Three Track Mind of Seattle, Emile Clothier, Dana Lyons, and others.

4) An Evening of Variety: Piano, Guitar, Native American Flute and Zampona:
Doing a variety show is what works best. Randall has been performing in various venues for years. Depending upon the venue, Randall will do a variety of Piano, Guitar, Folk, Adult Contemporary, Jazz and World Music, instrumentals and with vocals.

 

Collaborations:

Collaboration with Chimu Inka:

Randall has plans to collaborate with Guillermo Seminario, Agusto Taype & Mario Montalvo, from Peru for a few concerts in the New Hampshire & Vermont area in the USA and in New Zealand. The three are gifted musicians steeped in Peruvian Folklore Music. They play on a daily basis in Cusco Peru. Check out their performance and educational programs sponsored by Mountain Spirit Institute at their site.

 

Music Therapy for Alzheimer's and Hospice

Randall has been practicing a unique form of music therapy for Alzheimer's patients in the Central New Hampshire, USA area. Using a portable synth and two sets of headphones, he plays sounds, tones, familiar and original songs for his "private audience" of one. This "closed loop" between Randy and the listener creates a bond of non-verbal communication in which the patient appears more at peace, appreciative and uplifted. He has had consistantly positive reviews because of these results from recreation directors. He has also been trained as a Hospice volunteer and has played at a number of bedsides for those passing on. Randy still practices these techinques at the V.A. Home in Tilton New Hampshire on a monthly basis, and is available by appointment.
