Featuring former members of Tanglefoot
It’s a powerhouse band of contrasts, subtleties, humour, and the agility to go from full rampage to whisper in a heartbeat.
“This was my first RPR show, and I marvelled at the talent and versatility on stage….Go see RPR the next chance you get.” Jesse Wilkinson, Rrampt, April 2017
It’s that combination of vigour, poignancy and personality upon which RPR‘s reputation is built: arresting music, stories, laughter – and some astonishing vocal harmonies.
Rob Ritchie (keyboards), Al Parrish (bass) and Steve Ritchie (guitars) were around in the old days when Tanglefoot won Best Vocal Group at the 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Nowdays, with percussionist and singer/songwriter Beaker Granger completing the whole, the focus is broader and the musical palette more varied.
To be sure, the harmonies remain, and so does the energy, the finely-honed songwriting, the penchant for humour and the twinkling eyes.
RPR’s debut CD Trans Atlantic is now available and a new CD is due in April of 2018.
