Reggie Garrett & the SnakeOil Peddlers

RG&SOP perform both as a quartet and an acoustic trio giving audiences an experience both subtle and complex. The ensemble includes Reggie Garrett (vocals/acoustic guitar), Richard Middleton (acoustic/electric guitars & keyboards), Will Dowd (drums/percussion) with the addition of Keith Lowe (bass) for the quartet. The sound has strong rhythmic underpinnings, beginning with Garrett’s almost percussive guitar style. His singing reflects the folk/ rock/gospel traditions with which he grew up. He has been compared to acoustic legends Richie Havens and Bill Withers by the national folk publication Dirty Linen. As a songwriter Garrett’s specialty is creating and enhancing a mood. Reggie doesn’t consider himself to be a Bluesman - even so he was featured in an article in the August 2018 issue of Living Blues magazine. From Pistol River, OR to Rock Island, IL; from Duncan, BC Canada to San Luis Obispo, CA to Seldovia AK Mr. Garrett and his group have delighted audiences of all ages.
