Hurray For the Riff Raff, Alanna Royale

Alynda Lee Segarra grew up in New York and is now based in New Orleans, and you can hear aspects of both cultures in the music she makes as Hurray For the Riff Raff, an irresistible blend of heartfelt folk, Crescent City country and wizened Americana. Segarra’s distinct and powerful voice and knack for traditionalist songwriting have earned her project plenty of time in the spotlight of late; they’ve performed on “Conan” and “Letterman” and continue to pack out venues across the land. Look for Monday’s show at the Georgia Theatre to be similarly well attended by fans eager to hear the Riff Raff gospel.
