Ragbirds with Rear View Ramblers

[FOLK] The Ragbirds have been spreading their infectious world grooves since 2005, captivating audiences both at home and abroad. The heart of their sound is the striking beauty in frontwoman, Erin Zindle’s earthy-sweet voice and the poetic language in which she sings her campfire-tale lyrics. Backed by four skilled, multi-instrumentalists, Zindle sings, dances, and switches between various instruments, from violin to percussion. From their 2005 debut Yes Nearby—which boasted sounds from Celtic to Middle Eastern—to their most recent 2012 release, Travelin’ Machine, with sounds ranging from the American Bayou to the northern reaches of Africa, diversity remains a common thread. Their ability to play diverse styles of music is due to the impeccable musicianship of all five members. Zindle grew up in Buffalo before moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and on Friday, May 8 she returns to the 9th Ward at Babeville, accompanied by her Ragbirds, and armed with a worldly collection. Rear View Ramblers open the show.
