The RabbleBerries —
The RabbleBerries are a quartet of musicians whose wide-ranging repertoire includes music for political gatherings and social causes (for which they have been much in demand), songs of the sea, songs of workers of all kinds, original songs, traditional songs, and generally whatever tickles their musical fancy.
The RabbleBerries sound is full of tasty vocal harmonies and flavourful guitar licks spiced up with autoharp, flute, keyboard, banjo, mandola, thumb piano, harmonica, percussion, and washtub bass.
The band first came together for Victoria’s Tall Ships Festival in 2005. They liked playing together so much they thought up a band name and kept rehearsing!

The RabbleBerries are pleased and excited to announce that our 1st album, “Jam”, is available. We are very happy with the quality of the recording, done by Mike Freeman in our very own living room, and painstakingly and artistically mixed so it sounds “just like us”!
There are 18 songs on the album, both originals by Alan O’Dean and Karen Gillmore, and covers by all sorts of folks. This album is sure to have you singing along in no time—and probably dancing around the house too.
For the CD insert details, song list and such, check out our ‘the CD’ webpage.

We are doing a pricing scale much like our house concerts, with a waged/unwaged price: $20/$15, respectively. Also, we’ll sell you 2 CDs for $30 and you can mix and match—we still have some Virgo Rising CDs left.
“From the joy of trains and homegrown tomatoes, to the injustice of economic globalization and the poverty and homelessness it creates, The RabbleBerries’ first CD promises to both entertain and enlighten.”—Victoria Street Newz, January 2010
