Ebird & Friends 5th Annual Holiday Show
Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 7:00 PM (EST)
The Ragbirds are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Holiday Show "Ebird & Friends" at the Hartland Music Hall on Sunday, December 16th.
The show will include music by The Ragbirds as well as performances by members of The MacPodz, Appleseed Collective and other Ann Arbor favorites. Featured artists include Laith Al-Saadi, MadCat Ruth, Chris Buhalis, Jetty Rae, Tyler Duncan (Ella Riot/My Dear Disco), Dan Piccolo, Mike Boyd and many more. With comedienne Shelly Smith as the MC for the night, this rare show has a charm that you don't want to miss.
Since 2008, in the middle of the Mitten, in the heart of December, it has become a yearly tradition for The Ragbirds to present this unique, family-friendly holiday show. The songs and artists change from year to year, but the spirit of the event is community, its soul is creativity and each show is unforgettable.
“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 yearly that the entire Zindle family gathered to sing songs together and that early, communal experience of music took deep roots. In “Ebird & Friends” she draws on these roots and uses her creative energy to bring new life to holiday favorites with the help of her many talented musical guests. 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 performance of new and old songs.
Pre-sale tickets will be available at Milford Music beginning November 1st, while they last. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show starts at 7:00pm. There will also be a performance of the show on Saturday, December 15th at The Ark in Ann Arbor (www.theark.org)
Hope you’ll join us – this show is guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit!
