I first met Dick in the late '60's in the Hartford area. There was a coffehouse craze going on at the time. The "music central" site was the Forum in the South end of Hartford, but a number of 'burbs had their own setttings.

I think that I first saw Dick at the Maisery in Windsor ( or the Lantern in East Hartford). His presence on the guitar was amazing. It seemed unfortunate for us "locals" that just as his talents became legend in our area he moved on.

Bluegrass was foreign territory to a lot of us in the area. Dick's flowing guitar work was an incentive to dig deeper - for that I will always thank him.

After he moved on I followed him through the Bromberg years and lost track. I moved out here to Central California in the late 70's. Blow and lehold, who should I run into playing backup guitar on a Paul Siebel tour through here but Dick.

I had met Paul through the Forum in Hartford, so it was a grand reunion - Dick and I shared common "what ever happened to" stories of Hartford people. The '60's and '70's were a grand time for what is now refered to as
Americana music - Dick was responsible for a wealth of education and enjoyment of the genre.

He will be greatly missed.
