Rich performs with a range of artist, all of whom receive great reviews:
No Depression: Anybody who knows and loves Sally Spring’s music will welcome the opening bars of Beautiful Ride, the opening track on this new album, like an old friend. If you don’t know her music, I’ll tell you that from the first bar you’re dropped gently into the warm sound of her band – a balanced sound, built around Rich Feridun’s eloquent acoustic guitar – and then Sally’s voice comes in, a rich alto with a touch of vibrato seemingly ever-present, that sounds like the voice of all the wise women who ever were, assured and authoritative.
The Noise Boston: “Whiskey” is perhaps the best of the more up-tempo numbers, enlivened by the skilled guitar work of Rich Feridun. (Review of Bethel Steele: Of Love and Whiskey)
Tammy Faye Starlite
New York Music Daily: Tammy Faye Starlite Plays Nico to the Hilt in Chelsea Madchen. A fascinating mic of both obvious and obscure material from throughout Nico’s career gets a surprisingly lively interpretation from the first-class art-rock band: Dave Dunton on piano, Rich Feridun on guitar, Keith Hartel on bass and acoustic guitar, Craig Hoel on sax, flute and trumpet, Ron Metz on drums andTammy on harmonium.

Americana Gazette: LaFave’s affectingly emotional vocals routinely transform his covers into something all his own—here, on Dylan’s nearly-lost 1997 outtake,“Red River Shore,”he reels off eight double-length stanzas with remarkable understatement, delivered in a lightly sanded rasp that projects a bittersweet yearning well beyond that of Dylan’s typical delivery. Then, after the seven-and-a-half-minute story concludes, a substantial final section rewards intrepid listeners with exquisite fretwork from Richard Feridun,who also subtly builds the nearly 10-minute track with atmospheric and artfully turned phrases in tandem with Bill Chambers on slide and mandolin.
