years, Richard is an avid writer & multi instrumentalist and has played in many
musical situations covering a wide range of styles including rock, folk, classical,
Richard regularly performs at many local venues and sightings of him are wide and varied. Performing his own music as a solo acoustic act, or with the support of his band is the heart and soul of the Richard Chase experience though many have seen him as a principle tenor in the Quabbin Valley Pro Musica group, actor in local theatre productions, or piano player in the contra dance bands Joy After Sorrow, & Noah's Raven.
