He is our Bass and Guitar player. Rich is son of the banjo player. (Mama's don't let there sons grow up to play banjo!) He has turned out amazingly well, in spite of his musically dysfunctional family back ground.

Brian Du Pont - Bass

Brian has gone cold turkey from the comfort of his electric bass to playing the big dog house upright bass. He was initiated by playing in a gig after only one practice session on the big fiddle (a standard practice with the Mountain Men). But being the quick study that he is - he picked it up quickly and plays regularly (when he's not adding members to his family!)
