Richard "is a solo acoustic guitarist who can spellbound a crowd with his mixture of songcraft, sensitivity and chops. ... His playing has the proper balance of technique, lyricism and soul.” [Weekly Planet / Best Solo Acoustic Artist.]
He is a terrific musician, his commentary is a hoot - and he is also a great fella, but please don't tell him that! It's the fourth time Richard has come to Brisbane to perform for Magda's. Incidentally, Tony McManus who once again played for Magda's ( 31.08.2018), is performing with Richard in Florida, Friday, 07.09.2018! ... See MoreSee Less

Michael MacManus, Melbourne Guitar Foundation: Melbourne Guitar Foundation
"As Artistic Director of the Melbourne Guitar Festival and co-partner of the Melbourne Guitar Foundation I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the culturally significant and important work Magda Community Artz undertakes. Magda has hosted some of the finest classical guitarists in the world, including Adriano Del Sal, Gian Marco Ciampa, Johannes Møller, Laura Fraticelli, Lorenzo Micheli, Thibaut Garcia, Jose Maria Gallardo Del Ray, and the New Zealand Guitar Quartet - to name a few. With many more already planned for 2018. Magda’s support in this regard is paramount in the logistical and financial requirements needed to bring these musicians to Australia. Due to Magda’s assistance, the Melbourne Guitar Foundation was able to have the opportunity to host these musicians at our Melbourne Guitar Festivals and concert series. I would like to point out three areas Magda has an immense impact on: Education, Career Support for Emerging Australian Artists, and Cultural Benefits for the General Public.... "
