Ranky Tanky

Thursday, July 12 @ 7:00 PM

Advance ticket sales for this show have ended.
Tickets will be available at the door starting at 5:30 PM

Ranky Tanky released their eponymous debut in October of 2017 and by December of that year the group had been profile’d on NPR’s Fresh Air With Terry Gross and their album soared to the #1 prositions on the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon jazz charts. “Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky tanky” loosely translates as “work it!” or “get funky!” In that spirit, this Charleston, South Carolina based quintet performs timeless music of the Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the music roots of Charleston are in fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.
