Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem emanate JOY whenever and wherever they play. Rani Arbo on fiddle and guitar, Andrew Kinsey on bass, banjo, ukulele, Anand Nayak on electric and acoustic guitar, and Scott Kessel on percussion are among the most talented New England players around. As a music reviewer for No Depression said of them: “some of the most soul-lifting songs you’ll hear in your life…pure magic happens when these four musicians play together.”
Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem will be appearing at the me&thee in Marblehead, MA on Friday, September 13.
