We are sponsoring the entertainment for this networking happy hour and we will have music on two levels. Would like to set you up in the lower level of the Lounge – you will be playing solo.

    Richard! Awesome website. I am, also, particularly fond of the “Expressions” section. Makes good reading. I can’t wait until you get the photo gallery up and running. I will never forget the experience of working with you at Ian’s and Tammy’s wedding. I see them often at Holy Mass – which reminds me of you and that treasured experience. May Christmas blessings continue to come your way all during the New Year !

  8. Hi, Richard,
    Congratulations on your website; I know how much work setting one up is! I really enjoy your blog posts, a beautiful adjunct to your beautiful music. Let us know how to “Follow” you; I couldn’t figure that out. I look forward to getting to one of your concerts again soon. I’m finding in difficult times that music is the one thing guaranteed to lift me up!

    • Richard says:

      Hi Karen — for now, until I figure it out, you can subscribe through entries RSS, which is listed under “meta” on right hand side. Thank you!

  9. Frazier says:

    Hi Richard, great start but you will need some of your music playing to let folks hear and want to come out for a live gig…I wish you the best!

    • Richard says:

      Hi Frazier — i have links under “listen” — let me know what you think. Are you still traveling to Brazil a lot?

  10. Ryan says:

    Richard- Wonderful website. I am also fond of the reflections page. It reminds me of our long talks during my ear training study with you two summers ago.
    I wish you all the best and good luck in New York.

  11. Carlos Costa Ribeiro says:

    Prezado Richard,
    Belo site! Muito bem feito. Entretanto, tive uma certa dificuldade em encontrar os links para ouvir o som de sua música ! Gostaria de abrir o site e já ouvir o som de seu violão, quem sabe com um estudo do Villa Lobos!
    Abraço de seu tio / padrinho Carlos

    • Richard says:

      Obrigado tio Carlos. Tou com muita saudade e quero visitar voces.

    • Eunbi Kim says:

      I completely agree! It would be nice to have some music playing when the site opens up but with an option to turn it off if you wanted to on the side somewhere. Villa Lobos Etude sounds nice.

  12. Oi, Richard!!!
    Muito bom seu website.
    Bom saber de você. Quando vem ao Brasil?
    Tenho tido muito trabalho. Neste final de ano estou em turnê na Europa por 40 dias com a divulgação de meu novo CD – dedicado ao samba da Bahia, especialmente ao Samba de Roque Ferreira, um compositaor baiano com mais de 400 músicas gravadas, mas que não tem seu nome muito conhecido do grande público. Você pode ouvir um pouco no meu myspace.

    grande abraço e super 2011



  13. I love the drawing with your reflection and your gently listening expression.
    My only request, since you ask, would be to perhaps have a shaded background color, perhaps even subtly flowing thru your favorite part of the spectrum (blue thru violet to red?) between pages, rather than the white background. You certainly play in color.

    • Richard says:

      How did you know that’s my favorite part of the spectrum? I’ll have to figure out how to do that — it’s a good idea. Thanks for comments

  14. Gigi Ross says:
