RAPT: Freewheeling jazz edged folk, blues, bluegrass and original acoustic music.
Described as a jazz edged acoustic trio, RAPT’s sophisticated and exciting arrangements, intricate vocal harmonies and fine instrumentation wrap around the expression of their stories with sparkling musicianship. Featuring acoustic rhythm,classical and jazz style guitar playing, 2 double bass players,sometime simultaneously on the same bass! sparkling bluegrass mandolin and bouzouki and down home rootsy banjo.
These varied influences give strength to their own compositions and the interpretation of others work. RAPT's arrangements are instantly appealing, personal and travel the paths of their collective experience and musical influence as they take the audience into their world via story and song.
