Mr. Roper %40Bearsville TheaterDeep in the Catskill Mountains, where the echo of Crazy Chester and Tiny Montgomery still whisper through the pines, Mr. Roper awoke by the side of the river.  Longing for the sounds of his youth, he wandered from town to town with twelve strings beneath his fingers and stories that flowed like low shelf whiskey.  As word spread of his organic tales and rustic melodies, the people began to gather.  Together, they found an escape from the processed electric rhythms that plagued the land.  The voice of the troubadour blended like buckwheat honey with the patrons, and as they sang, their troubles were drained from the mountains, distilled upon the bed of the Hudson.

Eric Squindo (guitar/vocals) and Rick (guitar/vocals) awoke Mr. Roper in 2008.  Together, they keep the troubadour alive with a blend of rustic folk rock and Americana.
