Ragbirds Refuge Lounge Sept. 1st 2018.png

The Ragbirds have been wooing audiences with their globe-trotting, eclectic sounds since the band was formed in 2005 by Erin Zindle and Randall Moore. What started out as a fun experimentation with Celtic fiddling and percussion from around the world would combine with the band's three new members to eventually become the Ragbirds debut album, "Yes Nearby." And even after guitarist, TJ Zindle, joined the group in 2008, providing them with a rock-n-roll edge, the group has never lost the worldly influences in their music.

Ever since, The Ragbirds have continued to receive local and international acclaim. Performing over 150 live shows a year and touring constantly have made them festival favorites at places like Electric Forest, 10,000 Lakes, and Summer Camp. Yet it was the birth of Erin and  Randall's first child which inspired their most recent album, "The Threshold & The Hearth," a project which explores the ways in which love and family relationships can weather the storms of life. 

Whether they're entertaining fans across the world (did we mention they had a #1 hit in Japan?!) or closer to home in Michigan, their music and stage presence continue to make them great favorites. 

We're so excited to welcome them to the Refuge Lounge, and we hope you'll join us for the show!
