Rich is an Iowa-born potter and multi-instrumentalist who lives year-round in Baileys Harbor. He is known for his skills on upright bass, washboard, spoons, jug, and ukulele, all of which he plays as a founding member of Sheboygan-based string band The Water Street Hot Shots. He’s also a frequent stagemate to songwriter Katie Dahl (who happens to be his wife). As an actor, Rich worked extensively with Paul Sills, pioneer of story theatre. When he isn’t hanging out with his family (Katie, their seven-year-old son Guthrie, and their sweet dog Rosie), Rich can often be found gardening, cooking, or tapping trees for maple syrup.
