“A giant of a performer, Rick Redington sings with nuance and passion. His powerful voice soars above the valleys of the Green Mountains, and his virtuoso guitar playing is as smooth and velvety as the hillsides themselves.”
Don Hirsch, Director
“I throughly enjoyed recording one of Rick’s songs and found him to be a true professional, and a nice guy as well.”
Jack Casady, Bassist
“Just wanted to add my thanks for a job well done on Saturday night. Your performance was not only rocking, but totally professional. Despite the bugs and humidity, everybody had a wonderful time. Sherri and I have spent the last couple of days fielding calls and e-mails praising the event as a whole and the band specifically.
Thank you soooo much for playing at our wedding. You guys were awesome, and we had so much fun, and everyone said you guys were unbelievable.
MTV writer, director and founder of New York Aids Film Festival and President of Girl Behind The Camera, Suzanne Africa Engo adds, “My favorite Folk-Abilly-Rasta-Jam-Rock Band in the world is headed by the one and only RICK REDINGTON, his music touches my soul, and lives in my hair… I am taken to a new place every single time I hear him open his lovely mouth to sing. I adore him and that Band of his is world class. LUV!LUV!”

| This is Cecil Ducharme. He ran a music store out of a retired Train Station in Castleton Vermont. My first real guitar was a Gibson “The Paul” that was bought for me by my family as a High School Graduation present. I slept with that guitar and played it for many many years till long after Cecil passed away. My first album was title “Old Friend” and was a tribute to a wonderful gentlemen who inspired me and educated me on many things with strings. A few years back during a music residency i did in NYC I went to see Les Paul perform. He was about 90 then and it was a lifes dream to see him perform! I just happened to have “The PAul” with me and Les was kind enough to sit at a table with me and discuss my old friend Cecil and the wonderful Gibson that we got through him nearly 30 years ago. Les wrote on it “To Rick, Keep Pickin”!!! What a tremendous THRILL and HONOR.
