Rick Fielding – Acoustic Workshop
Tragically Rick Fielding passed away in March of 2004 just two months after completing work on this new recording. Named after his popular Toronto folk radio show, Rick’s new album has him picking with some of the best folk musicians anywhere. The music spans country, blues, bluegrass, ballads and four original Fielding compositions. Rick was an accomplished musician on guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, and autoharp and on this recording he was joined by among others Tony Trishka, Oliver Schroer, Curly Boy Stubbs, Pamela Swan, Chris Coole and Grit Laskin. “Acoustic Workshop” underscores why Fielding had become one of Canada’s most respected folk musicians.
Produced by Paul Mills.
