The world-class musicians in Big Richard initially convened in 2021 for a festival date. The quartet showed up to the one-off like it had been together for years, bursting with jaw-dropping virtuosity; playfully irreverent stage banter; stunning four-part harmony vocal interlace; imaginative arrangements; a refreshingly eclectic repertoire; and a healthy dose of lady rage.

Quickly things for the Colorado-based, neo-acoustic supergroup morphed into something way bigger than a one-and-done appearance. The sellout club shows, and the confirmed festival dates across America drastically changed its members’ lives. Now, Big Richard is poised to penetrate the Americana music world and beyond. To date, the quartet has issued 3 singles, the Live from Telluride album, and it has new music on the way.

Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Poi Rogers performs a mix of original and vintage country & western swing, Hawaiian steel guitar ballads and cowboy tunes. Poi Rogers features Gerard Egan on his handmade acoustic guitar & 1954 Fender triple neck steel with Carolyn Sills on standup bass, their timeless harmonies anchoring the show.  The duo, who also front the award winning band, The Carolyn Sills Combo, plan to release their debut album in 2024.
