RICK FINES’ classic blues guitar picking only hints at the authenticity that he brings to his music. Have a listen to any of Rick’s recording, and what you hear is the quintessential blues/folk experience – the fundamental man and guitar union, all reasons he has been a Blues Camp mainstay for years. There is just something so bred-in-the-bone intimate that this veteran of the folk and blues circuits in North America creates. To say Rick loves what he does might be an understatement. For decades his life has been music. He has earned eight Maple Blues Award nominations and twice won the Acoustic Act of the Year, but we hear that becoming a father has widened his horizons considerably as he now has learned to change diapers almost as quickly as he learned to change chords. What a guy.
