Veteran dulcimer ace and young keyboard maverick join forces for an intergenerational smorgasbord of roots, rhythm and groove!

What do you get when you combine a famed folkie with a rising star seasoned expertise and youthful exuberance old school groove with Broadway chops?

Rick and Nico blur all boundaries, in a word, they cook! 

This collaboration has been decades in the making. At age 8 Nico wrote Rick a fan letter and at age 23 he orchestrated Rick’s music for symphony. Equally proficient on keyboards and woodwinds, he’s in constant demand across Canada as an arranger and musical director for stage shows from Chemainus to Ontario, when not playing jazz with his own trio or touring to promote ‘Full Circle’, his duo CD with his mother, renowned chanteuse Joelle Rabu.

“Nico Rhodes is astonishing, not just an accompanist, you have to hear and see him caress, cajole and at times almost punish the piano.”

Since emerging in the ‘70s in iconic folk trio Pied Pumkin, Rick has released 18 recordings and performed his highly original music in nine countries, earning three Juno nominations and Vancouver Island, Western Canadian and Canadian Folk Music Awards. Singer, songwriter, actor and raconteur, he is legendary for his capacity to combine music and humour to uplift and refresh the human spirit. 

“Rick uses every fibre of his being to translate private experience into shared experience, what he does is a day-glo yo-yo of theatre, music, mime, poetry, philosophy and confession spinning on a string of laughter.”

Join Rick and Nico as they explore the possibilities of shared musical horizons.
