A dynamic three with a vibrant energy created by the sum of the parts.
Combining the many musical loves of the band members, their performance is rich in folk, celtic, blues, jazz and classical influences which can be heard in their arrangements and their original material.
With diverse instrumentation and great harmonies, their music is uplifting, dynamic, personal, colourful, powerful, exciting and invites you into their world.
A short description offered by one fan was "jazz-edged folk".

"RAPT have a repertoire of brilliant turns and are an enlivening performance trio, crafting a night of magic & memories which results in an audience that pleads 'More! More! More!"
"It was brilliant . . . the audience was mesmerised . . . by the performance."
"Almost Sunday morning and the glow hasn't diminished yet. What a top quality group RAPT is. What I loved about them was so much variety in their choice of material - it seemed effortless but anyone who is involved in music knows what an illusion that is. Such quality, and intelligence simply makes the work a joy, first to themselves, and then, so instantly, to us. They tell great stories too. I tried to count the number of strings on all their instruments and gave up!"
"RAPT lifted the acoustic roof of The Shack last time they performed here."
