They rocked the folk/roots music scene as the rhythm section of Tanglefoot, a hard-working band with a massive presence and a fanatically loyal following throughout Canada, the US & Britain. Now Rob Ritchie, Al Parrish and Steve Ritchie, along with percussionist singer/songwriter Beaker Granger, have re-connected as RPR. The new configuration affords the four veteran performers the opportunity to stretch their wings, indulging in musical whims and creating a memorable experience of arresting music, stories, laughter and reminiscence. Its light and shade, irreverent and poignant, gentle as a whisper and rampantly energetic. Whether its an original country song of Als, Steves recollection of a Robert Plant version of an old Dylan tune, or Robs incisive musical humour, their trademark harmony, the chemistry, and the impact ...are all there!
