Roots, gospel, folk, bluegrass. I don’t know what you call it, but Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem are something to see. And you can see them right here at Middlesex Community College.

On Friday evening, November 15 at 7 p.m., Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem will perform live in Chapman Hall. They’ll bring their joyous blend of musical genres right here for the young and old(er) alike. The concert will be family-friendly with the first part aiming at the kid crowd-but we more seasoned folks will like it, too-and the second half directed to an older audience, but will contain nothing a child couldn’t enjoy as well.

Rani and her husband, bandmember Scott Kessell, live right here in Middletown and and have been an integral part of the community for many years. Bandmembers Anand Nayak and Andrew Kinsey hail from Massachusetts. Rani and Andrew were part of an earlier bluegrass group called Salamander Crossing.

Check out Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem on their website at www.raniarbo.com and check them out on November 15 at MxCC. Although the concert is free, reservations will be required. You can register here.

Yours truly, Adrienne Maslin
