HOLLAND May 22, 2014 

Another beautiful day in Holland. Today I'll be doing a photo shoot, a performance at a nursing home, dinner with friends, and a meeting at the recording studio to get ready for this Saturday's Live From The Heart II sessions! I am excited. I hope you are too:-) A big thank you to all my fans and friends in Ireland and Holland who make this tour possible. THANK YOU! Lots of love, Rich

Ireland May 15, 2014 

Ireland remains my home. In my bones my soul there's no place I've ever been that touches me like Ireland. The weather has been gorgeous. I'm staying my friends Val and Deirdre and their son Alex in Dublin. Monday we had dinner and late night drinks at their beautiful place. Tuesday took a two hour bus to Athlone for dinner and late night drinks with my friends Leigh and Geraldine and their son Cian. I stayed in their beautiful lakeside house. Last night I played a great show in Dublin. Stayed up late drinking and talking with Val. Today just a beautiful day having lunch and pints of Guinness at various places that were all fantastic. Now I'm catching up on internet and giving my liver a rest before my weekend of shows in Clonmel!

Lots of love.
Rich

April 19, 2014 

Hi! I am sitting in the Cancun Airport, listening to Beck, and waiting for my flight home. This is a good time to write my Spring Newsletter!
MEXICO: Stayed in Tulum, cool town. The ambiance was perfect. If you like local colors, flavors, people, and experiencing life in a small Mexican town nearby beaches, Mayan ruins, restaurants, shops, and great things to do than this is for you. Some day I would like to be a tour guide:-) We laid on the Tulum beach, ate, drank, and stayed in a cozy hotel called Posada Luna Del Sur. Awesome host Graham and chef Erick:-) We visited the Mayan Ruins in Tulum right on the sea cliffs and swam in the ocean under the cliffs, sureal. We swam with sea turtles and stingrays at Akumal, amazing. We visited the Mayan Ruins at Coba and climbed the tallest temple in Northern Yucatan looking out over the rainforest. Breataking. It was a great short vacation.

Spring is here:-) 

It is like summer outside in Park City; sunny days, warm temps, T-shirts and shorts:-) 

This week I played the first in a series of concerts for senior citizens. After I saw the movie "Alive Inside" I was inspired to bring live music to older people in nursing homes. In the movie a man takes ipods into nursing homes and plays music for people suffering from alzheimer's and dimentia. The results are incredible. To learn more visit: http://aliveinside.us/  
I contacted my friend and fellow piano player Kirk Garrett and we have set up a series of shows! 

I continue to be busy performing in Orlando, FL, Snowbird, UT, Elko, NV, Moscow, ID, Dallas, TX, and then a cruise in the Carribean over the next month.

See you at the piano!

Lots of love,
RICH 

Seattle and Back! 

I just returned from 4 rainy days in Seattle. Well, Bainbridge Island to be exact and we had some sun. My son just moved there with some friends and I went up to see how they are doing. They are doing great which makes me happy. I stayed at a B and B, just a short walk to town and the ferry to Seattle. Very peaceful and quite. The boys were just a few blocks away too. I spent a few days on the Island. We had dinner a few nights and I brought them some stuff for the house. I spent and a few days in Seattle visiting friends, playing pool, eating and drinking good stuff:-). It was a great trip:-)

Now I am home in Park City enjoying sun and snow. Working from home and life is good. Working on the computer, my keyboards, my yoga mat:-)

Thanks!
RICH

San Francisco - Day 3 

Owen and I walked to Michael's house. He gave us 2 bicycles. We rode through the Presidio and stopped many times along the way to look at the old military installations dating back to the 1890's that line the sea cliffs and to hike down to the water. It was really spectacular with the waves pounding the rocks and the splashes of water that rose high into the air. There are panels with information about the military presence, natural history of the area, bird life, vegetation, and more dotting the paths. The Golden Gate Bridge was a beautiful destination and we took our time crossing it, enjoying the views on the bridge and the vista points on both the south and north ends. After 4 hours on the bikes we headed back to Michael's , returned the bikes, grabbed a bite of Chinese food, and headed back to the hotel to rest, shower, and prepare for the evening. 

We took the bus to The Fillmore area. We had a terrific and unusual Indian dinner at Dosa and went to Yoshi's Jazz Club to hear The Tommy Igoe Big Band. Tommy and I played together for 4 years back in the 80's when I lived in New York City. I haven't spoken to him in 25 years. the show was great, Tommy's band was great, and the guest singer Christine Poland was wonderful. After the show I talked to Tommy and some of the other musicians. We had a good talk about the past, present, and future, and we said goodnight.

Owen and I walked all the way back to our hotel, talking and stopping at a few places along the way

Another great day and night in a great city!

San Francisco - Day 2 

Feb. 17, 2014

TODAY woke up slightly hungover from gin gimlets Michael made late last night. Walked to hotel with Owen and coined the phrase, "Museum of Artificial History." 

Today Owen and I had a muffin and coffee at hotel, rode #38 bus downtown on Geary, switched to "F" streetcar to Fisherman's Wharf, and took ferry to Alcatraz. Blue sky beautiful day on the island. We spent almost 5 hours there! It was spectacular; the boat, the guides, the tour, the sunshine, the birds, the views... Everything! We caught the last ferry back and had dinner at Pier 23 with Michael and family. A great little restaurant on the water with live music:-)They left early and we were joined by a nice family from Fairfax and we talked about traveling to India. Then Owen and I walked around Pier 39 and made our way back to our hotel, in reverse of the way we had gone in the morning. At midnight we watched the movie "Life Of Pi" in our hotel room.

Lots of love RICH

San Francisco - Day 1 

Hi. I am writing to you from my hotel room in San Francisco on a BEAUTIFUL Sunday afternoon. Flight in was peaceful. My son Owen and I are here for a 5 day vacation to go hear music, eat food, see sights, and have a great time! We had a nice lunch at a sidewalk cafe, stopped next door at Healthy Harvest for a great local beer. A new flavor from one of my favorite american breweries: Sierra Nevada's Ovila Abbey Quad. I have never had this on before. It is a dark Belgian style ale brewed with plums! It is 10.2% but goes down easy. Beautiful small bottle with cork and unique label. Nice balance:-) Our hotel is perfectly located 3 blocks to Golden Gate Park or 3 blocks The Presidio. Today we will walk to Golden Gate Park and to The Pacific Ocean. RW

Time flies! 

Up way to early today to get on the road. Playing in Gunnison, Colorado tomorrow night. Then home for Valentine's Day. Off to San Francisco next week for a short vacation. Back to The Wynn/The Encore in Las Vegas February 23 and 24. And then it's March already. Wow! Time flies:-) BIG NEWS COMING! Sign UP FOR my newsletter to find out:-) RICH
