RPR with The Annie Donahue Trio at the Minstrel
April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10 – $12
Those who mourn the demise of the great Canadian band Tanglefoot will rejoice at the emergence of RPR, which might justifiably be called “Tanglefoot II”. Three of T’foot’s members, Rob Ritchie (keyboard), Steve Ritchie (guitar), and Al Parrish (bass) form the core of the band, and are joined by Beaker Granger (percussion & guitar). The full-throated folk sound is still there, along with some of the old band’s repertoire. But 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 eyes. The Annie Donahue Trio features Annie Donahue (singer/songwriter), Todd Dennison (guitar/vocals), and Craig Limey (bass/vocals). The trio formed in August of 2018, with their first performance opening for the Folk Project Getaway Concert Series to rave reviews. They combine traditional folk music and gospel with jazz influences to create unique musical arrangements with tight three part vocal harmonies. They strive to make music that touches listeners with songs that are introspective, joyful, meditative, and move them to join in singing. Wheelchair accessible.
