Lang rd, Windsor, CT
December 10th with perennial favorite Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem. Looking for a little light as the days get darker? Come party with Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem as they release WINTERSONG - a Christmas CD that skips the holiday canon and digs up the power and beauty at the roots of this ancient holiday.
Like New Englanders in wintertime, WINTERSONG summons two responses to the dark: reflection and celebration. Hole up and think about your life, then go out and party. The band's CD release features plenty of both, from danceable, electric guitar- and banjo-driven carols and songs, to hushed Tennyson and Longfellow settings, to fiddle-driven New Year's shouts from the Georgia Sea Islands and Louisiana. The sum of these parts is a surprising winter journey full of fierce poetry, wild joy and hope for humanity.
