Meet the Spokane Tambourine Man

Posted By on Tue, May 27, 2014 at 3:44 PM

With our Volume festival just days away now and the summer music season already underway, we thought we'd recognize one of the most familiar faces in all of Spokane's nightlife scene.

Yes, it's the Spokane Tambourine Man, whose real name is Michael Ransford, and if you've been to a local show you've likely seen him dancing his heart out and shaking his tambourine like his flowing mane of hair depended on it.

Local actress and filmmaker Rachel Cox made a documentary about Ransford, and take a look at it below. But first, we'd like to recognize Ransford with a lifetime achievement award for all the dancing he's given us over the years. That award is worth a free pass to Volume and we're happy to have him there!

Since you're not a famous tambourine player, you should go buy your passes here.
