Dick was born in Lowell, MA and spent his early years in an Irish-Scottish neighborhood. He graduated from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. He has exhibited his paintings in Boston as well as nation-wide. Although he had a career as an art teacher… music has always been his passion.
Sometime ago he started a music career with “Rye Straw”, a Bluegrass and contra dance band. Later on it was Texas swing with a 5 piece band called “Dixie Peach”. Several years later in a Blues band called “Chasin’ the Blues”.
Lately his focus has been on Irish music with his group “The Millboys”, Playing in Irish Pubs and restaurants in Central Massachusetts. On one of his many road trips to Ireland, Dick combined his music and art to paint a 1400 sq. ft. mural in county Claire featuring local musicians.
