3 Play Ricochet Biographies

3 Play Ricochet's four members hail from the four corners of the United States; they met in Seattle and discovered a shared musical heritage.
+ Peter Langston grew up in New York's Greenwich Village where his parents were involved with the theater and the dance world.
+ Tina Webster grew up in Portland where her father worked for the phone company and her mother wrote dialog for the Green Acres TV show.
+ Ron Haas grew up in Los Angeles where his parents worked at Disneyland.
+ Bonya McGarrity grew up in Memphis and Nashville where her father played bass for C & W star Porter Wagoner.

3 Play Ricochet combines a long-time favorite Northwest performer with three up-and-coming musicians just establishing their credentials as bluegrass and modern acoustic music stalwarts. The result is a band that plays a wide range of traditional and modern American music with humor, taste, and passion.


Peter Langston (guitar, mandolin, dobro, and vocals) started playing traditional music in his teens, forming pioneering bluegrass and jug bands in Portland, Oregon in the 60s and New York City in the 70s—he hasn't stopped yet. He's performed with such diverse artists as Doc Watson, Chill Wills, Mike Seeger, Clark Terry, Bill Keith, and the Reverend Gary Davis.

Tina Webster (5-string banjo, guitar, and vocals) was trained as a classical pianist starting at age 6, and was inspired to learn banjo decades later when fate crossed her path with that of Alan Munde and Joe Carr in a coffeehouse in Salem, Oregon.

Originally from Memphis, TN., Bonya recently moved to Seattle with her husband of 50 years. Her Father, Speck Rhodes, played bass for many years on the Grand Ol' Opry with Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton. She says, "I've got South in the mouth, music in my veins, and I love playing my Dad's bass".

Ron Haas (resophonic guitar, guitar, and vocals) is the musical youngster of the group. Ron started playing guitar later in life and it was through the Seattle bluegrass community that he finally found the environment and kindred spirits that encouraged him to move forward with his musical journey and join a band.
