Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem “American Spiritual”

The Alden

1234 Ingleside Ave.

McLean, Virginia 22101

In “American Spiritual,” Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem lead concert audiences in a bona fide revival. There’s no tent, no potluck dinner — and no preaching, unless you count the band’s uproarious and wise stories. Instead, this charismatic quartet administers songs and tales 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 from 200 years of roots music to find songs that uplift and connect.
