The new record 'LATITUDE' now out!

We are extremely excited to
 release our first studio
recording in 7 years!

"Prepare to be uplifted. Latitude is Rant Maggie Rant’s breakthrough album - a wonderful mix of Trad folk, Roots, Celtic, and World rhythms, that skips effortlessly between genres... and often within the same track. Great stuff.”
Jan  Hall, Folk Roots Radio

"This Ontario folk ensemble might be the ultimate melting pot of musical styles, and delights in mixing elements in surprising and fun new concoctions.....lots of trad folk, but it's turned on its head...these are all special players, giving new life and different twists to originals and classic folk covers. The lovely Paper Boats is perhaps the best example of their first-tier ensemble at work, starting as an acoustic guitar/percussion number, before recorder, fiddle and more join,  doubling and tripling the lilting melody line, touches of Africa gliding in. It's three-quarters instrumental, although when there are vocals, again, it's a wonderful sound, especially the crazy folk-scatting on Cocktails in the Cabana."
Bob Mersereau, CBC Radio

RANT MAGGIE RANT embraces the time honoured styles of the music from the seven Celtic nations (the obvious Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, and the lesser known Isle of Mann, and the Celtic regions of Galicia in Spain and Brittany in France), as well as from Quebec and Canada's East Coast, with each member bringing their individually unique influences to create an uplifting, infectious sound.

RANT MAGGIE RANT's fusion of Latin and Mediterranean rhythms, African hand drumming and percussion, blues/rock guitar backdrops, revved up tempos, unexpected time changes, and a unique rhythmic attack take their listeners on a journey to several cultural musical landmarks. Their repertoire combines original and contemporary compositions with traditional tunes, often blending them together to deliver an intoxicating performance.
