This Grammy Award winning, Charleston, SC-based quintet, Ranky Tanky, performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands.
Their debut album was featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and the TODAY show. It also soared to the #1 position on the Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes Jazz Charts. Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, and heartbreaking spirituals can all be found on their latest release Good Time, which also offers the group’s first original songs inspired by Gullah tradition.
The music draws on the culture of slave descendants from Gullah, a region of coastal sea islands that stretches from the southern coast of North Carolina to the northernmost part of Florida.
Ranky Tanky performs at 7 p.m. March 4 at The Pines Theater in Lufkin.
The event abides by COVID protocol with social distancing and masks required. Go to thepines.visitlufkin.com for tickets and more information.
