It happens in the middle of Michigan in the heart of December. Since 2008, it has become a yearly tradition for The Ragbirds to present this unique family-friendly holiday show called Ebird & Friends. The songs and artists change from year to year, but the spirit of the event is community, the soul is creativity and the show is unforgettable. Ragbirds frontwoman "Ebird", of course, is Erin Zindle, lead singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of The Ragbirds. Erin’s budding childhood love of music was sparked at Christmastime. The holidays were the one time each year that the entire Zindle family gathered to make music together and that early communal experience of music took deep roots. Fiddles, horns, bagpipes, guitars, and instruments from all over the world will be sounding their voices together in harmony. Expect to be entertained, surprised, cheered and warmed by this collaborative artistic performance of new and old songs, including The Ragbirds original songs inspired by the holiday. This show has become a phenomenon—it's up to three nights, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
