A veteran of the Canadian music scene and considered by some as an underground legend, violinist Richard Moody has delved into almost every style a string player can try.
Richard's musical interests lie mainly in improvisation, drawing from and combining the many styles and techniques he has learned in his extensive musical travels.
While still in his teens, Richard moved from his native Winnipeg to Montreal and joined the gypsy jazz group 'Swing Dynamique'. Several years later, and after a classical music education at the University of Manitoba and the Conservatoire Nationale de Musique in Caen, France, he co- founded the critically acclaimed folk rock group 'Acoustically Inclined', garnering a huge national following.
Richard is the principal sideman for Superstar trio 'The Wailin' Jennys' and has performed and/or recorded with a variety of prominent artists, including 'Deva Premal', 'Jane Siberry' and 'Alex Cuba'. Richard is also a member of the Juno nominated band 'The Bills'.
