Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem
February 2, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Americana roots, rhythm and harmony quartet Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem has toured North America for 18 years — visiting coffeehouses, performing arts centers and festivals (including the Newport Folk Festival and the California World Music Festival, among others).
The band brings fiddle, guitar, bass and junk percussion to 100 years of American music that ranges from Appalachian ballads and Georgia Sea Islands tunes to Springsteen covers, songs by contemporary writers, and incisive originals. Its sound is “tight, with stylish, unexpected choices” (Acoustic Guitar), a mix of New Orleans grooves, old-time gospel harmonies, bluesy swing fiddle, and fiery electric and acoustic guitar. All four-band members sing lead, with Arbo’s alto at the helm. Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem has released seven CDs on Signature Sounds. Wintersong (2016) is its most recent release.
“Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem dig deep into their collective souls, finding joy in the moment, peace in the harmonies, and rapture in the rhythmic drive.” (The Hartford Courant).
