Richard Wood

Prince Edward Island

For over three decades, five-time ECMA and multi-Music PEI Award-winning Richard Wood has blown away sold-out audiences around the globe with his traditional-borne, fiery-brand of Celtic music. Career highlights include performances at the Kennedy Center, DisneyWorld, the Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and on televised programs: Good Morning America, The David Letterman Show, Up Home Tonight, and Rita & Friends. From winning countless step-dancing and fiddling championships to being named in MacLean’s Magazine’s Top100 Canadians to watch in the 21st Century, Richard has shared stages and tour buses with A-Listers like The Chieftains, Rita MacNeil, the Barra MacNeils, Ron Hynes, the Rankin Family, and Shania Twain. Richard has played for King Charles III, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, William and Kate (Prince & Princess of Wales), Prime Ministers, Senators, Governor-Generals, and the Emperor of Japan, but he is most proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in the North Pole, Bosnia, and twice in Afghanistan.
