Album Notes
review of Richard Tillinghast’s previous CD, Sweet By and By,” - The Dalles (Oregon) Chronicle
Pairing a guitar and banjo playing singer songwriter with a classically trained cellist is not an obvious choice, but it’s a musical marriage that works beautifully.
White Salmon’s (Washington) Richard Tillinghast has high praise for cellist Tova Cochrane, who plays in the Hood River Symphionetta. “She’s a good friend and an improvisational musician,” he writes, “who stretches her classical tendencies playing with a country boy like me.”
The pair will appear at The Mint in The Dalles for the release party of Tillinghast’s fourth CD, “Sweet By and By.”
Tillinghast is blessed with a unique voice. He’s been compared to everybody from Eddie Vedder to James Taylor. For us, it’s a blend of John Prine and John Stewart, with echos of Pete Seeger in the phrasing, but none of those do it justice; in the end, he’s an individual.
And though he’s an excellent performer throughout, that voice was born to sing in a minor key.
Tillinghast also has a poet’s ear and economy of expression, with a sweet spot for the telling phrase.
On the song, “Orion the Hunter,” he writes: “The wind is raging, the fire is out of control/ and I’d cross the bridge back to you, but I’m tired of paying the toll.”
Tillinghast has paid his own set of tolls, and traveled the world extensively, including a seven year stint in Europe in which he worked as a horse wrangler, potter, and door-to-door salesman as well as a musician.
That experience gives and unusual depth to the songwriting, which is well matched with his guitar and banjo skills.
