The Ragbirds are a 5-piece, female-led, folk-rock-world fusion band out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. They describe their music as “infectious global groove”. The musical roots of The Ragbirds sound are complex – with Gypsy, Middle-Eastern, Americana, rock, and Latin influences, all stirred with a Celtic fiddler’s bow. In live performances the band incorporates variations on traditional African drum pieces, each member trading their instrument for a hand drum.
The songs carry a positive message and include both pop hooks and improvised solos. It is music that fits stages of many sizes and styles – from listening rooms – to jam-band music festivals – to bars and clubs with a hyped-up dance floor.
