On the second weekend of December The Ragbirds will be presenting Ebird & Friends 7th Annual Holiday Show. It’s a unique variety-show-style performance, put together by Erin Zindle (also known as Ebird) and featuring many of her amazingly talented friends including George Bedard, Laith Al-Saadi, Katie Lee (Appleseed Collective), Jen Sygit, Yorg Kerasiotis (FlashClash), Members of The Macpodz, Moxie Strings, Kiana June Weber (Gaelic Storm), and more!
The show is a creative spin on Holiday tunes from many traditions with a wide range of genres and instruments from all over the world. Expect to hear originals, traditional songs, holiday favorites and Christmas carols turned inside out and on their ears as fiddles, horns, hand bells, percussion, and many voices join together. These are the songs that bring us in from the cold and express the true joy of gathering together for the holidays. Over the years this show has become a tradition for many Ann Arbor families, and as word spreads the audience grows each year.
Opening night begins at 8pm on Saturday, December 13th at The Ark in Ann Arbor. There will also be a second performance on Sunday, December 14th at the Hartland High School Auditorium at 4pm.
Tickets for The Ark performance are available at The Ark box office, at the Michigan Union Ticket Office, or online at www.theark.org. Tickets for the Hartland performance are available at Milford Music, Hartland Community Ed and online at www.theragbirds.com. Tickets are $20. More information, including the full lineup and a live music sampler from previous years is available at www.theragbirds.com
Here’s the deal:
As an independent grassroots band, we rely and depend heavily on you, our army of fans and extended family, to help us spread the word about The Ragbirds. The best way for you to do this, (besides telling your friends and family about the music and dragging them to our shows!) is to help us flyer and promote in the towns we’re playing in.
There are two main parts to being involved with the flock, which are listed below. We estimate that this volunteer work will take less than 2 hours total. At the end, we’d like to say thanks by giving you a guest list spot (free ticket) for your show. To get the guest list spot you will need to turn in your feedback form one week before the show (more info on that below).
#1 – Postering
Soon, you will be receiving 10 posters in the mail. You should place these posters in smart locations where other fans might be hanging out. Good locations are destination locations such as coffee shops, record stores, etc. Please hang these in places where they will not be taken down for a long time and be sure to ask the shop owner for permission first. Also, if you live outside the city please make a trip into the city to place your posters there.
#2- Online promotion
We ask that you each post information about the show on your facebook page and that you “attend” the Facebook event listed below and invite your friends. Visit our tour page to open the Facebook event for a show near you.
