Rick Fielding - Solo (Rare 1976 Canadian Private Singer Songwriter LP)


Rick Fielding is a strongly tradition-oriented songmaker from Toronto, Ontario, a superb multi-instrumentalist, and a darned fine singer.
This 'Solo' LP is his first release from 1976 and it's a very great LP.

Growing up in Montreal in the 1960’s in a musical family, Rick was influenced by musicians like Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Rev. Gary Davis, Pete Seeger, Josh White, and The Weavers. After moving to Toronto in 1969, Rick quickly became a fixture on the Toronto folk festival and club scene, where he met and worked with musicians like Gordon Lightfoot, Ian and Silvia, Tom Paxton, Arlene Mantle, and dozens of others.
Rick toured extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. as a solo performer, establishing himself as a favourite at folk clubs and festivals.
