Rick Bolton’s dream of becoming a musician all began in 1962 when, like so many young musicians, he watched the Beatles take over the world with a performance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

"As a young man, I was chasing a dream. As I got older, I realized the ultimate gig was a mile down the road, playing with and for my friends and then going home to my wife and kids. That's really making it."

That's Rick's idea of a successful career in music, and by that definition, he's made it.

From playing in garage bands on northern Lake George, where he traveled to gigs by boat because he was too young to drive, to touring out west, only to return home and help launch a thriving music scene in Saratoga, Rick Bolton has led a life in music and found the music that reflects his life.

Rick recently came by WMHT-TV to record a segment for AHA! A House for Arts (Wednesdays at 7:30pm). Hear these sessions on the radio (and here online), and see them on WMHT-TV.

Take a moment and listen to the songs he played for this session, “Hallelujah Nights,” “Hypmotized,” and “Sharon’s Song.”
