BBC News spotlights CCM professor’s family life during coronavirus lockdown
Ric Hordinski’s family is the subject of a new BBC feature on life during the COVID-19 pandemic
CCM faculty member Ric Hordinski recently found himself in the international spotlight after one of his daughters was asked to chronicle her life amidst the COVID-19 pandemic for BBC News. A photojournalism major at Ohio University, Madeleine Hordinski was one of three young Americans asked to keep video diaries chronicling her experiences during the coronavirus lockdown.
The media coverage is nothing new to Ric, a Grammy-nominated adjunct professor in CCM’s Commercial Music Production and Jazz Studies programs. He has appeared on records with Jim James (My Morning Jacket) Bootsy Collins, Phil Keaggy, John Mayer, David Wilcox, Ben Harper, Richard Thompson, Tony Levin, Bill Kreutzmann (The Grateful Dead), Victor Wooten, Victoria Williams, Robbie Fulks and many others.
As a live performer, he has shared the stage with a dizzying array of musicians like Johnny Cash, Moby and Bob Dylan, along with bands like My Morning Jacket, Indigo Girls and more. He has also produced award-winning records for a variety of acts including Over The Rhine, Wilcox and Phil Keaggy.
On his own, Ric Hordinski has released six independent records under the moniker "Monk." These records feature the songwriting craft that he honed during his eight years in the band Over the Rhine, along with the ambient guitar skills that make him an in-demand studio musician and the ear for songcraft that makes him a well-respected producer. Paste Music has called him " the rarest kind of virtuoso, the kind who knows when not to play." This penchant for understatement has its rewards: Ric Hordinski received a Grammy nomination in 2003 and won a Dove Award in 2004.
