A Seemingly Mythical Creature
Zindle and The Ragbirds at Dogwood on January 13
Erin Zindle and the Ragbirds will perform in the Dogwood Center Black Box on Friday, January 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Zindle is the songwriter, fiddler, and leader of the nationally-touring folk-rock band Erin Zindle and The Ragbirds. With a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global-infused beats, rock guitar riffs, conscious lyrics and virtuosic fiddling, the band delivers music that is danceable, intelligent, and vulnerable.
At the band's performances, Erin transforms into a seemingly-mythical creature who dances with graceful arms outstretched, hand-made wings glued to her shoulders, recklessly digging into her fiddle strings with her bow. Her voice is both earthy and ethereal, full of character and texture with lyrics that point to the daily paradox of intentionally cultivating hope in the midst of a crazed and jaded world. She skillfully switches between violin, kalimba, piano, and accordion, never losing her infectious smile.
Zindle’s songs are laced with edgy guitar riffs and solos, played by her brother T.J. Zindle. T.J. is an energetic force, armed with both electric and acoustic guitars, playing each with grit and intensity. Shannon Wade (bass) and Loren Kranz (drums) make up the rhythm section. Both are dynamic masters of their instruments and together they make a tight-knit groove factory over which Erin & T.J. can improvise with ease.
Touring for nearly 15 years from their home-base of Ann Arbor, MI, Erin Zindle and The Ragbirds have developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, hard-working, high-spirited live bands in roots music.
