Roly Platt:
For more than 30 years, Toronto's Roly Platt remains one of Canada's premier live and studio harmonica players. To date, he has been recorded on over 800 national commercials, TV/ film scores and album cuts. Roly's early years on the road quickly introduced him to a wide variety of music including blues, country-swing, country-rock, R&B & jazz. This experience of having to incorporate harp into nontraditional roles, helped form his melodic approach – defining his unique style.

Touring Acts:
Ronnie Hawkins, Matt Minglewood, Dutch Mason, Suzie Vinnick, Rick Fines, Max Mouse, Roy Young, Bill Candy, Cement City Stompers etc.
