Ripper is a trailblazer in Canada’s punk folk scene. From his early days with Canada’s first-wave surf punk rockers in the band Stark Naked and the Fleshtones to his enduring solo career, Ripper has been a master of blending punk, folk, blues, rockabilly, and rock into a signature musical sound. Celebrated for his poignant song writing and a unique sound imbued with a DIY punk rock ethos, Ripper‘s musical journey has seen him flourish from the Toronto punk scene to the muddy roots of Vancouver and the vibrant anti-folk scene of New York City’s East Village. “Folk Song 3000” and “Go Van Gogh” are a testament to Ripper‘s unwavering dedication to crafting innovative and heartfelt music that captivates audiences across generations and continents.
Hans Umlaut has been baffling audiences over the last three years with a dizzying blend of retro electronica and old skool hip hop. His direct spoken delivery on social issues and erratic stage presence make him a unique prospect that has surprised and dazzled festival audiences this summer and has wowed The Adelphi previously in support slots for Minimal Schlager and Black Kes.
