Richard Wiegel

Richard Wiegel has been a fixture on the Madison, Wisconsin music scene for more than 30 years. His stirring guitar work has added excitement to the performances of The Midwesterners, Johnny and the Hawaiians, The Wisconsin Opry, Out of the West, The Swing Crew, Clicker and The Bowery Boys.

More recently, Richard has added solo acoustic guitar performance to his credits. On his solo CD "Out of the Blue," Richard covers classic songs from a variety of muscial genres: rock, ragtime, blues, jug band, jazz and rockabilly. The result is an upbeat and seamlessly entertaining album.

Following in the path of finger-picking guitar greats Chet Atkins, Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt, Richard pays tribute to these pioneers with his own treatments of classic songs: St. Louis Blues, Deep Water Blues, La Vie En Rose, A Good Girl is Hard To Find, and even a finger-picking version of Chuck Berry's devilish The Thirteen Question Method. Guitar and vocals were all recorded live at DNA Studios and mixed by Mark Haines at Smart Studios in Madison.
