Harmony, rhythm, indelible songs – these are the hallmarks of Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem, the New England based folk quartet now in its 20th year. From the Newport Folk Festival to California World Music Festival and beyond, this band’s steadfast brew of wit, camaraderie, and musicality leaves audiences everywhere humming and hopeful, spirits renewed. They join the 70 voice Family Folk Chorale for an afternoon of unforgettable uplift and music making.
The Family Folk Chorale, Boston area’s premier intergenerational chorus, is led by award-winning Artistic Director Chris Eastburn.
