Bio

This summer will see the release of a new recording. Set for June 10th at the Park Theatre in Winnipeg mb.

Jam Rock, Bluegrass, Roots and Country music, Rob Wrigley is a songwriter, a song collector and a multi-instrumentalist (banjo/mandolin/electric and acoustic guitar). A musician for 22 years he has been on musical journey; writing about his experiences and exploring sounds through his influences such as Bill Monroe, Grateful Dead, Phish, and Widespread Panic, the Band, Little feet, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and much more.

In 1995 Rob was a cofounder of Winnipeg Jam Band Furthur. Some of that groups successful members included Scott Nolan, Chris Frayer, Remi Shand and Neil Chippendale.1997 saw the release of their first full length cd- Fink. In 2000 Rob began playing the banjo and was part the Bluegrass collective known as Uncle Louis. They recorded a cd of traditional Bluegrass music before Rob moved to Victoria B.C. in 2002. There he co-formed a traditional Bluegrass group called Four Chords of Wood who are still performing with a new banjo player and gaining notoriety as B.C.’s top Bluegrass group. While on the Island, Rob also performed with The Salty Dawg’s. This trio enjoyed touring around the Island and performing at street fairs and busking in down town Victoria. 2003 saw the release of his third cd – Thawed for your Convenience. Shortly after that release Rob and his wife Bobbie-jo moved back to Winnipeg to raise their identical twins Luc and Aidan. Rob co- formed another Bluegrass collective called the Pines which eventually became Stonypoint, a group which quickly gained great recognition in Southern Manitoba.

Most recently Rob recorded a full length Bluegrass cd with Stonypoint. While on a “break” he has decided to pick up his electric guitar and revisit some of his earlier influences. Performing electric with some acoustic side dishes he creates an energetic theme that is sure to get feet moving.
