BANJOLIT

IT IS MY DREAM TO MAKE MUSICAL PRODUCTS THAT SIMPLIFY THE PROCESS OF MAKING MUSIC IN A WHOLE NEW WAY. I ASKED MUSICIANS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC HOW THEIR STAGE EXPERIENCE COULD BE IMPROVED, WHAT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO CONCENTRATE ON JUST MAKING MUSIC. THEN BEGAN THE RIGOROUS PROCESS OF ROAD TESTING EACH OF MY IDEAS TO MAKE SURE THEY WORE WORTHY OF THE MOST SERIOUS OF STAGE PROFESSIONALS. OUR IDEAS ARE ALWAYS IN PROGRESS. STAY TUNED TO BANJOLIT.COM FOR REGULAR UPDATES!

FUNDRAISING FOR MUSICIAN VISA

I learned to play banjo as a child. Music has been my life ever since. I have been performing traditional American bluegrass and my own brand of progressive acoustic music on both sides of the Atlantic since 1995. To further my musical career, I need to spend an extended amount of time in the United States working on my career. I have opportunities to create exciting music and musical products with companies and artists, but I can’t successfully pursue those dreams from Slovakia. My friend Jonathan Maness, and I, have been exploring the different avenues of getting the documentation necessary to let me start my life in the United States. We could use attorneys, but the immigration process has caused that to be prohibitively expensive. So we are asking for your help.

 

Please consider listening to my music, checking out my checking out my discography, and making a contribution that would allow me to continue my life’s work much closer to the people who also want to help me realize my dream.

LATEST CD, COMING BACK FOR MORE

One year of hard work is behind me, starting off with the great experience of recording my music with fantastic musicians, friends, and heroes. Following that was a couple of months mixing the recordings and designing hand-drawn artwork for the album cover. So right now, I am very happy that I can introduce my new solo CD “Coming Back for More”.
Thanks everybody for keeping my dreams rollin´. Richard.

“I know without a doubt that this recording has something for everyone who loves acoustic music – no matter how varied your tastes. I’m so proud of the music that Richard has created here and even prouder to call him my friend.”

NEW APPAREL.

FOLLOW ME.

It has long been my goal in life to be a full-time working musician. And these days, I’m about as close as you can get to living out my dream.  But I’m about to start on an exciting new project, and I need your help.
One of the major projects that I have worked on throughout my career is the story of Willy the Dwarf. This fairytale children’s book will feature an original suite of neo-acoustic banjo, written by myself, with the recordings produced by acclaimed American bluegrass artist and producer, Steve Gulley, and text translated to English by acclaimed fiddle player Becky Buller. There is a corresponding musical movement from each part of Willy’s story, and the CD will be delivered with each purchase of the book. Willy the Dwarf’s story parallels the crooked path we all must walk to find ourselves, as well as representing an allegorical perspective of my own musical struggles.

I am asking for your donations to make Willy the Dwarf’s story come to life. Click here to make your contribution to make this beautiful project possible.

MAKE MY NEW PROJECT WITH ME!

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT ! ALL DONATIONS WILL BE USED FOR MY UPCOMING PROJECT – DWARF WILLY AND HIS ADVENTURE.
