We’ll keep the band bio brief, as most of you already know about the Ragbirds, the veteran Ann Arbor-based indie-folk band with world music influences playing at Bank of Ann Arbor's Sonic Lunch on Thursday, August 1 at Noon.
Erin Zindle and Randall Moore, the wife and husband team who have been at the helm of the Ragbirds since their start some eight years ago, are expecting their first child in late-August, making their Sonic Lunch appearance this Thursday their final one for a good two months or so. The group has also begun a Kickstarter campaign to replace their aging tour van with a much-needed new one. I encourage you to go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theragbirds/send-the-ragbirds-on-their-brave-new-baby-tour-thi and make a contribution to the cause!
The Ragbirds are a life-affirming, inspirational, family-friendly affair, and their Sonic Lunch show this Thursday will be their last one until well after Erin delivers her new baby Ragbird. Don’t you dare miss ‘em! --- Martin Bandyke, ann arbor’s 107one
