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"
(Roots Music Canada 2018)
