Known for his hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” Bobby McFerrin will make his Rockport debut on June 2, bringing his vocal flights, improvisations and a mix of re-imagined covers and original compositions.
The 10-time Grammy winner has blurred the distinction between pop music and fine art, goofing around barefoot in the world’s finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. His latest album, spirityouall, is a bluesy, feel-good recording.
Ranky Tanky will open for McFerrin. This Charleston, South Carolina-based quintet performs music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States.
