GEOFFREY RICHARDSON

Violas | Violins

Geoffrey Richardson was born in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England in 1950. His father, Geoffrey Bert Richardson, was a multi-instrumentalist playing the clarinet, tenor banjo and guitar in Leicestershire band, The Syncopated Players, in the late 1920's.

 

His first musical performance was at Hinckley Youth Centre in 1964. He began to play regularly around the Midlands and helped to run two folk clubs in Hickley in 1965 and 1966. After Hickley Grammar School he went to Nuneaton School of Art (1967 to 1968), Manchester College Of Art (1968 to 1969) and Winchester School Of Art (1969 to 1972).

 

At Winchester he helped start a college band, Red Acid, playing Caravan, Frank Zappa and King Crimson music. Oddly enough, he subsequently joined Caravan, supported Frank Zappa on a US tour in 1975, and now he play with Michael Giles.


He finished college in June 1972 and moved to Canterbury to join Spirogyra. They dissolved shortly afterwards, but in the meantime he was introduced to Pye Hastings, singer and guitarist with Caravan, who invited him to join them. His first professional performance was at the "Gaskessel" in Bern, Switzerland on September 21st 1972.

 

In 1978 he spread his wings as a session musician, playing on other people's records and often playing with them live. From 1982 to 1990 he wrote and recorded film and TV music with Peter Veitch of Café Jacques, a group that he has recorded and toured with in the late 70's and early 80's.

 

He has toured the world and played on lots of records. He has been a member of Caravan since 1972, a member of the Penguin Café Orchestra since 1976, has been in, or is in, the bands Murray Head (since 1978), Rupert Hine, Quantum Jump, Paul Brady (1985 to 1988), Bob Geldof (1989 to 1995), Renaud (since 1989), Elsa, Michael Giles and other session bands.

 

Since 1995 he has worked with Jim Leverton, the bass player with Caravan, in the clubs and pubs, occasionally touring as support of Barclay James Harvest and others. He is the staff guitarist for Annie Whitehead's World Music Workshop, in Whitstable, a backing musician for The Serenity Sisters in Birchington, and a member of Hamish Stuart's Big Band in Faversham. He is also a member of The Orchestra That Fell To Earth Playing Penguin Café Orchestra pieces.
