Ranky Tanky: Live from the Hylton Center
Enjoy the 2020 Grammy® Award-winning quintet, Ranky Tanky, in a digital concert that is part folk, part funk, and totally fearless. When their outdoor concert had to be canceled in October, the Hylton Center sprang into action to record their concert onstage with the stunning Merchant Hall behind them. With a sound that’s both playful and spiritual, the Charleston-based band specializes in jazz-influenced arrangements born from the Gullah culture of the Southeastern United States. In 2017, their self-titled debut album soared to number one on the Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes jazz charts. “[Ranky Tanky] is primal jubilation,” shares The New York Times. From the comfort of your home, Ranky Tanky’s performance is guaranteed to lift your spirits with their soulful sound and lively rhythms.
