“Soulful porch side rhythms” (Hood River News). “This music is a deep healing well” (Edge Magazine). Bluesy acoustic slide guitar, mountain banjo, and “one in a million voice” (Creative Loafing) engage audiences with songs that capture today’s times.
Richard Tillinghast began playing the guitar and writing songs at 13 in red dirt South Carolina. He started traveling soon after, and from his first professional gig in London at the age of 19, he has brought his musicianship, humor and philosophy to audiences across the United States. Since settling in Washington State her has performed throughout the Pacific Northwest and invited to festivals from Arkansas’ Ozark Folk to North Carolina’s Black Mountain to Colorado’s Telluride Mountain Film Fest. Recordings include “Blue Tattoo” (1995), “Men and their Machines” (1996), “One Hum” (2005), and “Sweet By and By”, (2010). Tillinghast began a musical partnership with cellist Tova Cochrane in 2005. Tova is classically trained and has performed with the Walla Walla Symphony, Whitman College Symphony and the Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta. Together they bring a stage show that is energetic, meaningful, fun and most of all, original.
