Rick Fielding – This One’s The Dreamer
Rick Fielding is a veteran Canadian musician who established himself as a fixture on the Toronto folk scene in the early 1970’s. Since then, he has played with hundreds of famous and not-so-famous musicians, toured extensively throughout Canada, and for the past ten years has hosted “Acoustic Workshop” on CIUT Radio in Toronto. With a repertoire spanning country, blues, bluegrass, traditional ballads, contemporary folk, and more, Rick is an accomplished musician on guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, and autoharp. His music has taken him from intimate folk clubs to major festivals across Canada and the United States, where he has delighted audiences with his eclectic repertoire, tasteful accompaniment, and expressive singing style. His previous album “Lifeline,” recorded for the prestigious Folk Legacy label in Connecticut, was widely praised in the press for its excellent songwriting and fine musicianship. On his new album This One’s The Dreamer, Rick again illustrates his prodigious musical abilities and his knack for writing and choosing top-notch material. From the opening bars of “This One’s The Dreamer” to the unusual version of “Salty Dog” to the laid-back swing of “Gin Mill Syncopators” to the traditional ballad “The Wind and the Rain” to the Beatles’ classic “In My Life” to the final notes of “When We Gather Once More,’ This One’s The Dreamer treats you to a beautiful selection of timeless music from North American folk traditions. Produced by Bill Garrett, the album also features Greg Monk, Tony Quarrington, Zeke Mazurek, Don Reed, Chris Whiteley, Curly Boy Stubbs
