Music is powerful alchemy. In one moment - by the kitchen radio, in church, in the car, in a concert hall - music can rewire and heal our spirits.

In American Spiritual, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem lead audiences in a bona fide revival. There's no tent, no potluck dinner - and no preaching, unless you count the band's uproarious stories. Instead, this charismatic quartet mines 200 years of folk and spiritual songs that explore and revive the human spirit. From a lush setting of Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" to old American shape note hymns, prison work songs, blues, gospel and original compositions, American Spiritual draws on the rich history of roots music to find songs that uplift and connect audiences. The CSB Women's Choir will lend their beautiful harmonies to this performance, creating a truly special experience.
