Neighborhood Concert: Ranky Tanky

Snug Harbor Cultural Center
Singer and guitar wizard Clay Ross of Matuto fronts Ranky Tanky, a band of South Carolina natives celebrating the best of Southern roots music. Taking its name from a South Carolina Sea Islands phrase meaning “work it” or “get funky,” Ranky Tanky lives up to its name with a vibrant mix of everything from New Orleans–style jazz, blues, and country, to spirituals and tender lullabies.
