The Bay Area shares long and passionate ties with Louisiana, a bond exemplified by this raucous double-bill. Tom Rigney and Flambeau features some of the finest musicians on the roots music scene, including Rigney, an electrifying violinist and composer with a gift for putting an individual stamp on fiery Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes.
With deep family roots in the Creole community of the Gulf Coast, Richmond-raised accordion virtuoso André Thierry lays down serious zydeco grooves laced with soul and R&B. Bring your dancing shoes.
