5th Annual Charleston Jazz Festival presents Bobby McFerrin with Ranky Tanky

January 26, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0

$60 – $120

With 10 Grammy Awards and A #1 global hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” Bobby McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience is transforming a concert hall into a playground. Get ready to sing-a-long and raise the roof with joyful grooves. The jazz and classical worlds celebrate his innovative technique and spirit. His solo performances and collaborations with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianists Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, and the Vienna and New York Philharmonic orchestras are legendary.

Sharing the stage with Bobby McFerrin is Charleston’s very own Ranky Tanky, a gifted quintet of celebrated musicians from the South Carolina Lowcountry, most of whom trace their roots directly back to a unique African American culture called Gullah. Released in October of 2017, Ranky Tanky’s debut album reached #1 on the Billboard, Amazon and iTunes jazz charts. Their musical performances pay tribute to the Gullah community by updating timeless game songs, work songs, and spirituals collected from early field recordings taken along the Carolina Coast.
