Richard Sleigh (Http://rsleigh.com) has been exploring American Roots Music and the harmonica from the inside out for over 40 years. His latest adventures include being a featured soloist with the Wooster Symphony Orchestra and Paquito D’Rivera, playing and teaching Blues harmonica in Clarkesdale Mississippi, opening as a solo act for the Marshall Tucker Band and Nancy Griffith. Over the years he has also appeared with Taj Mahal, Bo Diddley, Maria Muldaur, and many others, performed and given harmonica workshops here and abroad.
His background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Printmaking and Drawing, and a number of different occupations including deck hand, graphic designer, and free lance artist and musician. The harmonica kept returning as a focal point in his life. Richard has a mad scientist / adventurer streak that led to building a series of experimental harmonicas, and becoming a student and colleague of Joe Filisko. Richard worked extensively with Joe Filisko for years testing ideas and developing the techniques that are now known as the “Filisko Method”.
