A Ragbirds Halloween!
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. SAfter seven years of averaging nearly 175 shows a year, all over America, these Ann Arbor-based world-beat-folk-rockers finally took a break from touring in late summer 2013 to celebrate the birth of Aviva Alice Moore, daughter of Erin Zindle and percussionist Randall Moore. This is the Ragbirds' Halloween show—the band will be in costume, and you're encouraged to dress up too! Michigan "Balkan brass and funk" band Rhyta opens.
