Richard has become increasingly involved with this little instrument. He plays ukes in both standard tuning [GCEA] and ‘5th’ tuned [GDAE].
His ukulele adventures so far have included producing the classic album The Secret of Life for the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and playing uke for Prince Charle’s birthday at Buckingham Palace.
2017 saw the premiere of Richard’s ukulele concerto Six Grooves for Ukulele (a short documentary about this can be found on Amazon Prime) whilst his ukulele quartet Tan y Bwlch was premiered in 2019.
Richard has also played ukulele at Wildlife, Beautiful Days, Scottish Ukulele and Welsh Ukulele Festivals. His favourite ukulele gig was playing unaccompanied Bach during a special performance on top of the Itaipu Dam overlooking Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
