Rip Van Finn is a Vancouver based band featuring a blend of fiddle, bagpipes, keyboards and percussion. They make original recordings, videos and produce concerts in the Pacific Northwest.
The band is comprised of fiddler Mike Sanyshyn, a four-time BC provincial fiddle champion. Mike is joined by percussionist and musicologist Curtis Andrews from Carbonear, Newfoundland. Andrews grew up with the music of Newfoundland but has more recently specialized in the rhythms of South India and Ghana, Africa.
A third member of the band is bagpiper and keyboardist Joseph McDonald. Joseph is also the principal vocalist and songwriter for the band.
Craig McGregor, a noted Vancouver session player, rounds out the quartet on guitar.
