Led by multi-instrumentalist Erin Zindle, The Ragbirds create songs using everything from a Celtic fiddle to a mandolin to an accordion. Since their formation in 2005, The Ragbirds have sold over 10,000 albums and perform over 150 concerts a year, crossing the nation in their tour bus that runs on recycled waste vegetable oil.In addition to high quality acoustic music, the Prairie Window Concert Series provides the option of savory soups using local ingredients by Claire Williams (Catering by Claire) and fresh breads and desserts by Paula Sims (Morning Harvest Farms).
