Tom Rigney and Flambeau are one of the hottest bands on the American Roots Music circuit. Their sound is a scorching blend of Cajun, blues, and New Orleans grooves, featuring Tom Rigney's electrifying electric violin and his original compositions. Rigney's band of all-stars simmers and cooks with musical intelligence. Their high energy live show features tight ensemble playing, deeply infectious grooves, and rich soloing. Renowned guitarist Danny Caron (Marcia Ball, Clifton Chenier, Charles Brown), boogie queen Caroline Dahl, Steve Parks on bass and Brent Rapone on drums have carved evocative and powerfully uplifting music, led by that guy in the red boots.
Joining Tom & Flambeau is renowned cajun fiddler Michael Doucet. Since the mid-'70s, Doucet has been one of the dominant figures of the Cajun music revival, respected for his scholarship and admired for his showmanship. On the one hand, Doucet dredges up ancient Cajun tunes with medieval French roots, and on the other, plays flamboyant fiddle with his band Beausoleil.
