Live Music in Arlington (Tarbox Ramblers)

This band plays to standing room only crowds at their home gigs up in Boston. Come join me, I promise you will enjoy the music and have a good night.

Tarbox Ramblers

Taking listeners to a place where Appalachian music, ancient blues and gospel come together in powerful, unexpected combinations, The Tarbox Ramblers are left-field traditionalists whose rough-hewn, direct sound has drawn raves from Rolling Stone, All Things Considered, The New Yorker and many more.

This is old-soul music, and in freewheeling shows at clubs and festivals throughout the US and Canada, The Ramblers have played it to considerable effect, making converts of audiences wherever they’ve gone. Robert Plant caught the group’s live show and asked them to open his tour dates right on the spot; he later tapped them as backing band for a set with Alison Krauss at The Rock Hall of Fame’s Leadbelly Tribute.

Tickets only $12.

    I enjoyed the event and the music, but was expecting more than one Tarbox Rambler...I left prior to midnight so maybe another Rambler or two joined in after I left?

      Sadly yes! I felt the same about the music, I thought Michael was going to have a backing band, or at least a drummer with him. I've never seen him solo before and I liked the music, but only about half as much as with the whole band : ( Still had a fun time seeing friends and meeting new folks, hope you did too.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
