Multi instrumentalist Rick Garrett’s great joy in life is playing music.
From his days as pianist with the Heavenheirs southern gospel quartet, to traveling with The Shady Grove String Band and beyond, Rick’s been entertaining for 40+ years.
In Patchwork Rick plays hammer dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, uke, guitar, with an occasional surprise or two thrown in. Add to that a healthy dose of down home humor and laughter, it’s an evening that will have you smiling and tapping your feet….and, likely, singing along.
Rick’s first love is traditional mountain music, but a Patchwork performance includes a healthy dose of gospel, bluegrass, train Songs, and, sometimes, even some 60’s and 70’s music. You can always count on a fun, family friendly show with Rick, Holly, and Patchwork!
