The Ragbirds - Wanderlove CD

The Ragbirds use many traditional folk instruments including violin, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, accordion, acoustic guitar, piano and harmonica. With their folky roots sounds firmly embedded in the soil of rhythms ancient and new, they incorporate African poly-rhythms and Afro-Cuban tumbaos mixed with a rock, hip-hop or reggae style drum-kit.

Melodic lines are often built of ethnic scales and techniques, sometimes Celtic in style, sometimes Gypsy, or Latin, or African, and there is an improvisational element to the songs that keeps them fresh. In live performances, the band frequently incorporates traditional African drum pieces, each member trading their instrument for a nearby hand drum. They have a strong belief in the beauty of poetry and positive music, and the power of danceable rhythm.

Wanderlove is their second album, and it's blowing music fans away with infectious world grooves!
