RPR (Tanglefoot) making their first visit to Ye Olde Towne Hall, on Saturday, February 10, at 8:00 pm, tickets 18:00 adv, $20.00 at the door.  Legion Bar Service.  Tickets available at Ailsa Craig Home Hardware and Ticketscene.   This powerhouse Canadian roots band is full of contrasts, subtleties, humour, and the musical agility to go from full rampage to whisper in a heartbeat.
While it’s tricky to characterize their music as “Americana” when they come from Canada (and write from a decidedly Canadian perspective), it perhaps lends some idea of the flavour.
Or you could try “Crosby Still Nash meets Pink Floyd”, as one concert goer described their sound. Original story-songs, dynamic vocal harmonies and enough energy to power a small city: that’s what you’re in for.
RPR is percussionist/singer/songwriter Beaker Granger and three former members of the award winning Tanglefoot (Best Vocal Group, Canadian Folk Music Awards): Rob Ritchie, Al Parrish and Steve Ritchie.
“They sing raucously and passionately with big stirring harmonies … at times with roaring vigour, at others with sparse intensity, creating many moods.”
