Richard has played for King Charles III, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, William and Kate (Prince and Princess of Wales), Prime Ministers, Senators, Governor-Generals, and the Emperor of Japan, but he is most proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in the North Pole, Bosnia, & TWICE in Afghanistan.

Richard was also honoured to perform for a special Canada Day show on Parliament Hill which was nationally televised by CBC in front of a live audience of over 100,000.

His Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated and ECMA award-winning 9th album, UNBROKEN, was mastered by legendary, multi-Grammy Award winning Bob Ludwig from Gateway Studios, in Portland, Maine.

Along with winning countless championships as both a step dancer and fiddler, Richard has also earned the Don Messer Memorial Trophy. TWICE! Richard was also the recipient of the 2023 ECMA Stompin’ Tom Award.

One of Prince Edward Island’s best exports and always the proud island ambassador, Richard has brought his energetic brand of music around the world, touring extensively in Australia, Europe, Asia, and all across North America.
