Saturday, February 10 at 8:00 pm. Brush away the winter blahs with RPR Music, formerly Tanglefoot.
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 and create a rich and memorable interfusion of music, stories, laughter and reminiscence. It’s light and shade, irreverent and poignant, gentle as a whisper and rampantly energetic.
And whether it’s an original country song of Al’s, Rob’s incisive humour, the drop-dead vocal harmonies in a new acapella song or the occasional re-working of an old Tanglefoot tune, all the old chemical energy and impact …are still there.
