About Robert Richter

Dirty folk-rock blues

Robert Richter

Portland singer-songwriter and guitarist Robert Richter is an energetic performer creating music blending different genres from folk to blues to rock played with passion and energy as solo, duo or with his band. He describes the sound as "dirty folk rock blues."

His latest CD - his seventh - is comprised entirely of songs written by Richter, titled Thick and Thin.

Richter’s credits include appearing on Tom May's nationally syndicated radio program "River City Folk," carried on more than 250 NPR and community radio affiliates nationwide.

In addition, his music was played on the "Bob Dylan Radio Hour" heard on the Sirius Satellite Network and on KUSF-FM in San Francisco. He recently performed live on KOIN-TV (CBS affiliate in Portland) during their morning news show and also performed live on KGW-TV (NBC affiliate in Portland) on "Live at 7."

Richter and his band have performed at KINK-FM Noon Tunes at Pioneer Courthouse SQ, The Portland Rose Festival Main Stage and festivals and concerts around the Pacific Northwest.

"Robert Richter is a charismatic entertainer that gives his all every time he performs and is a stellar musician.” Morry Feldman of WQED-FM in Pittsburgh, Penn., said.

In addition to his solo project, Richter also is lead singer and guitarist for the Portland based Celtic band Castletown.
