Listen: Local 518 AHA Session With Rick Bolton
"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.
Take a moment and listen to the songs he played for this session, “Hallelujah Nights,” “Hypmotized,” and “Sharon’s Song.”
