US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

User profile: Ric Sweeney


Retired mail carrier, the human jukebox pre'75, guitar player mostly(banjo, harmonica and mandolin too)is a seasoned wordsmith and writer of music for long night drives along the coast over the mountains across the plains thru high deserts, where myth meets memory and there's always time and if he's not on time he just might be the last to leave...

"Mr. Rain" also sings rockabilly tempered bluegrass, blugrass with seasoned blues, blues flavored folk and rock and roll around again...(as well as traditional and country harmonious duets).

...His songs are heartfelt, sharpwitted, wistful poemlike stories with beautiful imagery, humor, and old-timey feeling. Pay attention to his Virginia/Shenandoah Valley/and Appalachia themed songs!
