Hi!  I'm Rick in Indianapolis.  With my wife, Holly  (fiddler/vocals) we're the acoustic duo Patchwork.  I'm also a stand up comedian and motivational speaker.

 Musically, I play guitar, mountain and hammer dulcimers, tinwhistle mostly.  I fumble around on the harmonica and recently have picked up a concertina  (anglo) and am learning that.

In my spare time, I enjoy Geocaching, ham radio, bicycling, and camping.

Hi Rick, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
