Rick's Bio: I was a boy soprano in a serious church choir meeting four times a week. I quit when I was the oldest boy soprano and switched to trombone to play in my High School marching band and didn’t return to singing until nearing retirement 20 years ago. Since then I have sung bass in various high-spirited choirs, hosted a Gospel Train radio show, and sung regularly with the Vancouver Folk Song Society – especially their sea shanty group, The Lazy Jacks. The COVID conditions have allowed me to “sail the cyber seas” to sing regularly with folks in several international ports of call.
