This looks like a promising gig to get 2012 rolling for the live music scene in Savannah.
The Ragbirds are based in Ann Arbor and will be releasing their latest album Travelin’ Machine days before the Savannah gig. From the official bio:
The Ragbirds albums have received local and national praise, hailed â€œHighly impressive!â€ by USA Today and touted as â€œAstounding international eclecticismâ€ by Reveal Arts. The Ragbirds were formed in 2005 with the release of â€œYes Nearby.â€ 2007â€²s world-travel themed â€œWanderloveâ€ was Homegrown Music Networkâ€™s #1 selling album in the fall of 2008. The 2009 international release of â€œFinally Almost Readyâ€ saw the band invade Japan with the single â€œBook of Matchesâ€ reaching #1 on the charts in Osaka. In 2010 The Ragbirds reached yet another milestone in their young careers when they independently marketed and sold their 10,000th album.
The Ragbirds have performed in over 30 states to a tune of 150+ shows a year. Crisscrossing the nation in their converted diesel bus that runs on recycled waste vegetable oil, these festival favorites have performed at Rothbury, 10,000 Lakes, Summer Camp, Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Hookahville, and more, and have shared the stage with Rusted Root, Railroad Earth, Toubab Krewe, Hot Buttered Rum, The Duhks, and many others.
