Hometown Show 2017
Route 66 Begins in Saline
With Guest Band – The Ragbirds
Saturday, March 11 at 7:00pm
An Extraordinary and Captivating Evening of Music, Song and Dance
with the Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic and The Ragbirds!
The Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic 2017 Hometown Show, titled “Route 66 Begins In Saline” will set the stage for the group’s upcoming summer tour across the USA on the historic path. The show will feature new music by the Fiddlers, then an exciting guest performance by another hometown favorite, The Ragbirds.
The Hometown Show will open with performances from the Saline Middle School fiddle clubs, and then the Saline Fiddlers will present their energetic and polished show that features a diverse range of music from American folk, fiddle, bluegrass, jazz, western swing, and Celtic traditions. Spirited vocals and Appalachian step dancing combine with the instrumentals to create an unforgettable live performance. After a short intermission, The Ragbirds will take the stage.
The Ragbirds began their musical career on the streets of downtown Ann Arbor and quickly earned a well-deserved local following. Since those early days, they have spread their style of music to 45 states to the tune of 150+ shows a year and have become festival favorites. They even invaded Japan with the international release of their album “Finally Almost Done” with the single “Book of Matches” reaching #1 on the charts in Osaka.
The Ragbirds describe their sound as “a fusion of folk rock and pop hooks over danceable world rhythms stirred with a Celtic fiddler’s bow.” They’ve developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music. The Fiddlers are excited and looking forward to sharing the stage with them! Check them out on their website: www.theragbirds.com.
