sticky icon The Passing of a North County Friend.....Rick Wickland


 The Passing of a No. County Friend…

Our bluegrass and folk music community has lost another dear friend & excellent musician. One of the earliest members of the Poway Folk Circle, Rick met and soon joined the Parkside Ramblers as a very welcome lead guitarist/singer. The Ramblers were known for strong vocals, mostly due to Rick's exceptional voice & variety of songs. “Rick was like the glue that held the band together all these years.” He was an accomplished guitarist & loved Swing, both playing and singing lead and harmony on songs like "Pennies from Heaven" . The instrumentalists in the band greatly appreciated that he was always ready and willing to play backup guitar on anything from bluegrass standards, to a fiddle waltz or even gypsy jazz.
