“energetic, almost punk-rock versions of traditional songs” — Colorado Sound


What began as an all-female festival collab quickly morphed into a serious passion project driven by sisterhood, harmony and humor, along with the shared desire to rage fiddle tunes and smash the patriarchy. 

Big Richard is a neo-acoustic supergroup made up of four well-established Colorado musicians: Bonnie Sims on mandolin (Bonnie & Taylor Sims/Everybody Loves an Outlaw/Bonnie & the Clydes), Joy Adams on cello (Nathaniel Rateliff/Darol Anger/Half Pelican), Emma Rose on bass and guitar (Sound of Honey/Daniel Rodriguez/Whippoorwill), and Eve Panning on fiddle (Lonesome Days). 

Formed in late 2021, the band gained immediate notoriety for their charismatic stage presence and their vocal/instrumental prowess. The quartet showed up to the one-off like it had been together for years and quickly graduated to club shows and dates. The musicians siphon from bluegrass, old-time, classical, country, and pop. 

Bursting with jaw-dropping virtuosity, playfully irreverent stage banter, stunning four-part harmony, imaginative arrangements, a refreshingly eclectic repertoire, and a healthy dose of lady rage, Big Richard is poised to penetrate the Americana music world and beyond.

To date, the quartet has issued 3 singles, the Live from Telluride album, and it has new music on the way.

Recommended for Fans of Sierra Hull, The Wailin’ Jennys, Molly Tuttle and I’m With Her.
