Cancelled: The Fairfield Four
Ranky Tanky

Thursday, February 25, 2021 7:30 PM Zankel Hall
The Fairfield Four, Ranky Tanky by Peter Frank Edwards
Folk, jazz, soul, gospel, and more are showcased when two Grammy-winning ensembles share a double bill curated by Rosanne Cash. Founded in 1921, The Fairfield Four revel in the tradition of a cappella gospel singing that thrills with its intertwining vocal lines, irresistible harmonies, and heartfelt soul—it’s singing that propelled them to stardom in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Ranky Tanky’s one-of-a-kind sound draws from the Gullah culture of the Lowcountry region of the southeastern US. Their intoxicating performances range from heartbreaking spirituals to freewheeling rhythms that set pulses racing and get feet tapping.
