RUM RAGGED – Folk Concert
Saturday, March 2nd at, 7pm at The Cultural Arts Center
Tickets $35 at http://www.artsglenallen.com or 804-261-ARTS
Formed by Aaron Collis and Mark Manning, Rum Ragged takes a bold approach to the distinct folk music of their home, the Eastern Canadian island of Newfoundland. Boasting bouzouki, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, guitar and button accordion, these new champions of East Coast music enliven and enlighten audiences with both songs and tune sets which they deliver with an honest swagger that is far beyond their years. With reverence for their roots and a creative, contemporary edge, this young band has quickly become known as the finest purveyors of their great living musical tradition. Rum Ragged is not your run-of-the-mill folk band, they are the genuine article. Don’t miss this special night of live music!
