About this event

Eugene Ripper is a Canadian punk rock survivor, fast folk pioneer and acclaimed rock n roll songwriter. From his roots with Canada’s first wave surf punk rockers Stark Naked and the Fleshtones and throughout an enduring solo career featuring a mashup of punk, folk, blues, rockabilly and rock n roll, Ripper continues to nail it down with an acclaimed musical vibe, unique lyrical skills and taste for everything from barbed fast' n' furious acoustic punk, folk, soulful ballads rock n roll to direct storytelling ballads and even beat driven spoken word. It's all wrapped up in post modern stance and punk rock ethos.

"Toronto's underexposed gem Eugene Ripper has been honing his unique brand of fast-folk with a punk rock ethos for a lifetime. Don't miss a chance to be transported to his noir universe." POP MONTREAL

" Ripper puts spikes back in folk music." VANCOUVER PROVINCE

" ... rippin' guitar slinger from Stark Naked & The Fleshtones, now playing ofton barbed, fast n furious folk, with a punk stance and a nod to the roots of rock and even film noir. Great stuff." SMASH UK

" One of the first acts I saw at the Sidewalk Cafe in the East Village was Canadian Eugene Ripper playing with the inestimable Billy Ficca (Television) and seeming to be the very epitome of AntiFolk - Johnny Cash meets the Ramones " ANTIMATTERS NEW YORK CITY

"His neo acoustic tales of near death, trains, outlaws, love gone bad, and freedom merge with an acute case of intense live energy. Ripper arrives somewhere between John Prine and The Ramones." MARIPOSA FOLK FESTIVAL
