Rick Sampson (pictured top on the far right) has been delighting audiences since 1977 with his innovative banjo backup work in a variety of bands, including the Riverbenders, Travelin’ Kind, and Suitegrass. He is widely known for his intelligent and melodic accompaniments for contemporary acoustic music.
B.Squat Woody and Rick Sampson
Woody Sampson is the progressive acoustic ‘duo’, featuring Brian Schellinger (a.k.a. B. Squat Woody) and Rick Sampson. Local fans will recognize them as members of the ‘Riverbenders’, the house band for the popular variety radio show, ‘The Big River Radio Wave’ broadcast by Wisconsin Public Radio.
Brian and Rick will be playing many of their original compositions, which include musical styles of folk, blues, rock, bluegrass and a hint of classical. Many instruments will be played in different combinations, occasionally augmented by Brian, kicking a foot pedal bass, making for a full rich sound and an evening of lyrics and melodies.
