LAUNCH KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, DEBUT NEW SONGS ON SPRING TOUR
The Ragbirds have announced plans to release their fourth studio album this fall, and that they are inviting their fans to join the recording process. The Ragbirds are a fusion of folk rock and pop hooks over danceable world rhythms stirred with a Celtic fiddler’s bow. Led by dynamic, energetic front woman and multi-instrumentalist Erin Zindle, the band utilizes an arsenal of instruments from around the world.
An independent band who tours for a living, with nearly 200 shows a year in over 40 states, The Ragbirds have decided to look to their fans and supporters for help through Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the largest funding platform in the world for creative projects. Every month, tens of thousands pledge millions of dollars toward projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.
The Ragbirds will debut the new songs from their upcoming album on a spring tour of the East Coast and Midwest. Spring dates will feature stops with Caravan of Thieves and good friends Wookiefoot and The Macpodz.
