RPR, a Canadian folk-rock band known for its amazing live shows, closes out the Tuesday night Boathouse summer concert series, proudly sponsored by the Schroon Lake Arts Council.

From the band’s official bio:

“RPR, known for its soaring vocals and huge harmonies, showcases several genres of music .Running the spectrum from stirring anthems to whisper-gentle ballads, RPR’s songs evoke joy, tears and laughter with a dynamic tapestry of musical styles that range from folk, rock and blues traditions in unique and refreshing ways. It’s cinematic storytelling from four captivating songwriters.

Together since 2012, RPR have regularly played throughout Canada and the US, as well as three UK tours to date. Appearing on festival stages, concert series, music halls, theatres, town halls and beyond, RPR continue to win new fans along the way.
The band has released two CDs, 
Trans Atlantic in 2013 and the latest, Longview. The new record features twelve songs that showcase the songwriting and musicianship like never before.

"Gorgeous harmonies [that] make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. The rock influence may be there, but it doesn’t disguise the heartfelt lyrics these guys write. These are songs that inevitably leave you speechless... they are all gifted songwriters"

Schroon Lake’s Musical Summer

Doo Wop, jazz, folk and country are among the music acts featured in this year’s 2012 Schroon Lake Arts Council line up for the summer.

“We are very excited about this season,” Jack Osborne, one of the organizers told Schroon Laker today.

The SLAC will again sponsor the traditional Monday Night Boat House Acoustic Jam Sessions, and the 23rd Annual Adirondack Folk Music Festival. There are also two free performances for children.

The number of acts is down “ever so slightly” from last year due to a ten per cent budget cut from the town of Schroon. Those cuts impacted several organizations that depend on government grants.

But that has not dampened the enthusiasm of the SLAC to find and bring unique acts to our community.

“We go out of our way to broaden the scope of music we have here,” Jack said.

This season’s lineup reflects that mission statement, while bringing back a couple of favorites.
