Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.
The Ragbirds exhibit a gleeful disregard for contemporary folk-rock convention. The group is clearly built around the multi-talented Erin Zindle, who is not only the singer and songwriter, but is proficient in a variety of stringed instruments. This classically trained violinist can aptly pluck the eight-stringed mandolin, wield a wild accordion, and rock the banjo while maintaining lead vocals. The ‘Birds specifically now designate Erin as frontwoman, and there’s lots more happening besides—with a change of cast in 2019, the band is shifting its weight and focusing more on the melodic components. The rhythms of their new sound leave room for the songs to breathe and for the vocals to take on the spotlight. This show marks a return from the pandemic of one of Michigan’s most fabulous live acts.
