Ricky Mier is a banjoist who hails from the San Francisco bay area. While attending Berklee College of Music on scholarship he won the Lowell Banjo and Fiddle Contest’s esteemed ‘Other Styles’ category. Ricky is versed in hard driving bluegrass music, Flecktones style fusion, open funk jams, classical, and now is dipping into Irish traditional music.
He uses a 2008 Gold Star GF-100 banjo with Keith D-Tuners and a nickel plated presto tailpiece. He prefers to use the stainless steel National NP2-SS fingerpicks for his picking because it decreases the amount of tarnish that develops on the picks.

This Fall, Lord Geoffrey is presenting a "rising talent" (with the emphasis on Celtic / string band / old time music / contemporary variants) mid-week music series, featuring student artists from the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory.
Outpost 186 in Inman Square, Cambridge is the venue where Rushad Eggleston, John Mailander and Molly Tuttle launched the series in the Spring. It seats about 35, thus is small enough so no sound reinforcement is needed but big enough to accommodate discriminating patrons.

October 16 - Cat and The Moon -
October 23 - Dylan McKinstry
November 20 - Dan Bui and Friends
December 4 - Adrinna Ciccone and Friends, feat. Neil Pearlman

Lord Geoffrey is a scurrilous card-carrying member of the Boston-area folk scene whose mission in life is to re-kindle the great folk scare by presenting in rented unique spaces vintage musicians of that era as well as contemporary upstarts!
