Shadows and Dreams is a collection of 13 tracks. Each track reflects Ricks long musical journey. It starts out with renditions of some traditional folk music, moves on to original Folk/Americana tracks continuing into some tracks with a Country feel and culminating with some original Christian Contemporary tracks. There's nothing here to offend the listener; this is a CD for the entire family to enjoy. What you're not going to hear is a lot of "U-2" sounding guitars or what may be called "banging and clanging". Each song is carefully crafted with thoughtful lyrics and compelling melodies.
One of the featured songs "Follow the Drinking Gourd" currently has over 38,795 Youtube views.
This CD is the product of over 4 years of work. Some of you may know that Rick suffered a terrible injury to his left hand, leaving only two fingers and thumb usable on the fretboard; but, through perseverance and hard work Rick devised a method and style that enabled the music to continue to flow. And flow it does on this new CD.
Please join us in enjoying this wonderful work.
