Like a mix tape made by a well-traveled friend, The Ragbirds music is diverse and foreign, yet somehow familiar. The voice at the front of The Ragbirds carries the freshness of the journey itself, and the lyrics point out the scenery like a friendly tour guide.The 2012 release of The Ragbirds fourth studio effort, Travelin’ Machine, is a new milestone for the band. It’s the soundtrack of the observant road-warrior, with layers of world grooves that stir the listener to move. The songs strike a balance between home and adventure, drawing upon elements of Pop, Gypsy, Afro-Cuban, Celtic, Middle Eastern and African sounds, with a little Cajun spice. Join us for The Ragbirds Thursday, August 16 from Noon to 1:30p in downtown Ann Arbor's Liberty Plaza. Visit soniclunch.com for more information and the week's lunch partner.
