The High Sierra Mountains around Yosemite Valley, California, with their snowcapped granite peaks and thundering waterfalls have provided a lifetime of musical and spiritual inspiration for singer/songwriter, Rich Price – The Singing Sierran. While attending the University of California, Berkeley, Rich worked during the summers as a singing cowboy at Yosemite National Park playing his guitar nightly from open-air stages to national and international audiences of thousands. Then, each day as a horseback guide he lead trail rides to the tops of mountain peaks surrounding Yosemite Valley. Rich also performed for the guests on Yosemite breakfast rides and at Ahwahnee Hotel barbecues. As a recording artist for Adonda Records of Nashville, Rich’s first album, “Spirit of Yosemite”, was so well received that the label recorded a second, “Cowboy Songs”. To accomplish these productions, Adonda consigned some of Nashville’s legendary musicians: Harold Bradley, Charlie McCoy, Jimmy Capps, Joey Miskulin, Andy Reiss, Brad Albin, David Smith and Bob Mater. Consigned as background singers were former members of the Jordanaires – Michael Black, Curtis Young, Gary Pigg and Ray Walker.
