Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Lee Segarra, but in many ways it’s much more than that: it’s a young woman leaving her indelible stamp on the American folk tradition – mixing in a little bit of syncopated Caribbean strut, down home rock and roll and, Appalachian rags. Like a song-cycle from an imaginary Off-Broadway musical, her new album The Navigator rises from the ashes of loneliness and striving, honky tonks and long walks by the river of urban dreams.
Xenia Rubinos – who uses her powerful voice to create beats and melodies from scratch from a wide range of influences from r&b and hip-hop to Caribbean rhythms all delivered with a soulful punk aura will also perform as well as singer, songwriter and fiddler Carrie Rodriguez who finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Carrie perform with her trio in support of her latest recording “Lola.”
