Rich Richards and the Stolen Dimes
“Rich Richards and the Stolen Dimes” was birthed during the onset of the COVID-19 shut-down when Rich and Lindsey Moore found themselves with a LOT of time on their hands. Wanting to explore another instrument, Lindsey, a professional flute and Irish Whistle player, picked up the electric bass and gave the song-writing duo a new focus. While talking with Scott Neely, hand percussion extraordinaire and one of Rich’s long time friends that have made music for over 20 years, Rich shared this idea of a new band with a simple instrumentation of bass, guitar, keys and percussion.
The Stolen Dimes explore and expand different genres that fall under the broader title of “Americana”. The band is excellent at balancing original material, written primarily by the duo of Richards and Moore with a couple selections from Mr. Neely which is rooted in Bluegrass, Folk, Blues, and Rock with band standards that pull from the past 60 years. They bring an entertaining, laid back vibe which combines depth and humor with their set selections.
All of them are “transplants” from the Mid-west and are based in Raleigh and Greensboro.
