GOSHEN — Ignition Music Garage brings artists from all over the United States to its stage, but this weekend, the music venue is putting the spotlight on the Midwest with The Ragbirds from Michigan and Goshen’s very own Tumbleweed Jumpers.
Who are The Ragbirds?
Started by songwriter and frontwoman Erin Zindle and her husband, Randall Moore, The Ragbirds blend genres from pop and gypsy to zydeco and Afro-Cuban. Hailing from Ann Arbor, Mich., the band toured from coast to coast at the end of 2008 in a van that was converted to run on recycled vegetable oil. The band released its fourth studio album, “Travelin’ Machine,” in 2012, and just last year, the group put out a live record titled “We Belong to the Love.”
Who are The Tumbleweed Jumpers?
Opening for The Ragbirds is a homegrown band with nine talented bluegrass-folk-rock musicians from the Maple City. The band will be releasing its debut EP recorded by Ignition’s sound guru, Joel Jimenez.
