Rick Ramsey
Pronouns: he/him/his
Instruments: Upright Bass
Styles: Bluegrass, Old Country


I grew up in a musical family in Rocky Mount, Virginia and some of my earliest memories are listening to my father and grandfather playing and singing. As a teen I played with my brothers and dad in the Ramsey Family band, performing mostly at parties, dances and fiddler’s conventions. I took some time off from performing to raise my two children and concentrate on a career in banking and finance. When my son, Dillon, began taking banjo lessons in 2003, I got re-engaged and haven’t looked back. I currently play bass in a band called the Rivanna Roustabouts, made up of mostly other Front Porch teachers and with the Blue Collar Bluegrass Band out of Roanoke.


My musical dream has always been to play bass and sing tenor with the Seldom Scene or Country Gentlemen.
