RPR is a band of contrasts, subtleties, humor, and the agility to go from full rampage to whisper in a heartbeat. The band brings a rare combination of poignancy and personality to the stage, crafting shows with tuneful music, touching stories, laughter, and yes, 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. Today they’re joined by percussionist and singer/songwriter Beaker Granger completing the whole, the focus is broader and the musical palette more varied.
The vocal harmonies are powerfully evident as ever, as is the energy, the finely-honed songwriting, the penchant for humor and the twinkling eye.
