BBQ on the Lawn with Tom Rigney, Flambeau and Motor Dude Zydeco at Rancho Nicasio
Date: Sunday, October 23, 2022
Tom Rigney has been a part of the San Francisco Bay Area roots music scene for almost fifty years. In 2000, after fifteen years as the leader and electrifying violinist of The Sundogs, fiddler/composer Tom Rigney stepped out on his own with a hot new band, Tom Rigney and Flambeau. The repertoire is original, eclectic, passionate, and filled with a musical and emotional intensity that will come as no surprise to followers of Rigney’s career.
The strong Cajun/zydeco influence is still present, as are the irresistible dance grooves that have been his specialty for more than thirty years. But there is also a deepening of the emotional range of his music and a concentration on creating moving and memorable melodies in a wide range of styles–he has literally become a “singer” on the violin. The music bursts with the energy of the bayou one minute, turns passionate with a gypsy tune the next; it can raise the roof with a Celtic reel and then touch the heart with a beautiful waltz; it can drive deep into the heart of the Blues or evoke echoes of Eastern Europe or the coast of Spain.
Gates open at 2:00pm and Music starts at 3:00pm. The cost is $28.00 per person and reservations must be made in the above website link.
