Amanda Walsh & Rick Szekelyi

North Coast Singer Songwriters debut music from their brand new CD "Troubadour" live at Nighttown!

Featuring: Amanda Walsh-piano & vocals, Rick Szekelyi-guitar & vocals.

Songwriters, Amanda Walsh and Rick Szekelyi, have been performing as a duo since 2015. They are also members of the band, City Limits (www.citylimits.us). Their set list includes songs they wrote individually, songs they wrote collaboratively, and interpretations of standard and contemporary covers.  
 
Amanda Walsh
Amanda Walsh has been playing piano and violin since she was seven years old. Her training began with Anita Pontremoli, Head of Collaborative Piano at The Cleveland Institute of Music. Amanda also studied violin with Helen Richards at The Cleveland Music School Settlement.  In 1998, she graduated with a Bachelor of Music in piano performance from The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. 

In her late 20s, she discovered a passion for songwriting, combining her love of fiction and poetry with her love of unpredictable chord changes and dreamy piano passages. Her influences include Claude Debussy, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, and Nina Simone. She recently released her first solo album entitled "Magic is Real," which debuted at Nighttown and various other venues in Northeast Ohio.
 
Rick Szekelyi
Rick Szekelyi, a resident of Cleveland Heights, has played guitar since he was eight.  Rick performed in various band during his teens and throughout college, but gave it up for family and career in his mid 20s.  Since turning 60, Rick has developed a serious interest in songwriting.  In pursuing this path, he has had the opportunity to work with a number of songwriters including Steve Earle, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Mary Gauthier, David Wilcox, Jonatha Brooke, and Don Henry. This made him recognize that in order to hone their skills, songwriters need opportunities to gather and share their art with one another and the public, regardless of their stages of development. Subsequently, Rick began hosting open mics. He started one in 2015 at the Stone Oven and continues to host one today at Heights Music Shop.  He has also been hosting Songwriters’ Rounds since 2015 at various venues, including The Barking Spider, The Bottlehouse Brewing Company, The Blue Rock Café, The Beachland Ballroom, Heights Music Shop, and Nighttown.
