The Arrogant Worms
The Worms find their roots in folk and acoustic rock, but borrow from Celtic, country, reggae, bluegrass, surf music and even Gospel. SEVEN popular CDs, three videos, the most requested song on the internationally syndicated "Dr. Demento Show", and standing ovations from audiences every where.
The Worms have made numerous appearances at festivals from coast-to-coast, piling on the air miles in their reckless pursuit of fun and profit. Their live performances have a reputation for high energy, a playful atmosphere and slightly unusual audience participation. Recently, they performed on Parliament Hill on Canada Day to well over 100,000 people, received standing ovations at Folk Festivals and performed a new musical, "King of the Surf" at the Edmonton Fringe Festival.
The Arrogant Worms continue to be CBC Radio darlings but their music now pops up on commercial radio and television. They have been seen on many regional shows and are featured on the new Comedy Channel.
They have never been on the Rita MacNeil show. However, Ms. MacNeil has never been invited to contribute to an Arrogant Worms album, so there may be some bitterness there
