PUTNEY– Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present roots music quartet Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem on Saturday, October 26, at 7:30 pm, at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill.

Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem mix traditional, original, and contemporary sounds on fiddle, guitar, bass, and recycled percussion, and top that with joyous harmonies from four skilled lead singers. Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem draws from the deep well of American roots music, and has an adventurous way of mixing things up. A Leonard Cohen cover gets a clawhammer banjo; Springsteen gets high-octane, bluegrass- style harmonies, and the band’s originals range from Unitarian funk gospel tunes to 1950s swing. With influences from Doc Watson to Django Reinhardt, from Ghanaian drumming to the funky Meters, and from Fiddlin’ John Carson to Bob Dylan. These are four musicians who pick up what’s lying around and create something new.

Tickets for this concert are $20 for general admission, $18 for students and seniors, and $10 for children 10 and under. JD McCliment’s Pub will provide a beer and wine cash bar.
