What began as an all-female festival collaboration quickly morphed into a serious passion project driven by sisterhood, harmony and humor -
along with the shared desire to rage fiddle tunes and smash the patriarchy.
Big Richard is a neo-acoustic super group composed of four well-established Colorado musicians:
Bonnie Sims on Mandolin
Bonnie & Taylor Sims, Everybody Loves an Outlaw, Bonnie and the Clydes
Joy Adams on Cello
Nathaniel Rateliff, Darol Anger, Half Pelican
Emma Rose on Bass & Guitar
Sound of Honey, Daniel Rodriguez, Whippoorwill
Eve Panning on Fiddle
Lonesome Days, TEDx
Formed in late 2021, the band gained quick notoriety for their charismatic stage presence and their vocal / instrumental prowess. After selling out all of their club shows, Big Richard quickly started confirming festival appearances across America. This year is shaping up to be one huge year.
