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.
