Strung-Out Troubadours is a writing/recording project that arose from the public response to their instrumental duo performances together with Dave Dunlop during Rik’s concert gigs. The material on the album is centred on an acoustic folk roots kind of showcase for serious guitar lovers. Unexpectedly, it won Smooth Jazz Album of the Year in Canada in 2007, and the Troubs were also the Duo / Group of the Year.
Rik is taking a hiatus from touring. Any updates will be posted here as soon as they are available.
