It was a love of close harmony singing such as  Everly Bros / The Hollies that drew first Dick into barbershop, when joining the then Chesham Buccaneers (now Knights of Harmony) in 1980.

He achieved significant chorus success when moving first to Shannon Express (2 golds) and then Cambridge Chord Company (3 golds, 2 European golds and Millennium gold) before going to Capital Chorus and recently back to the Knights of Harmony, where he has twice been Chairman.

He served as Membership Director (2010 - 2014) and for the past 30 years has been on the Convention team, under several titles, now Convention Logistics Manager. He feels very fortunate that the various team members that have been with him have made the job that much easier.
