Join Historic Downtown Woodland every Thursday in September for Thursday Night Live at the Plaza.
The Historic Downtown Woodland Group ups its game with bigger names for the September 2017 concert series, Thursday Night Live at the Plaza in Woodland, CA. With an expanded offering of regional and national touring bands, each with their own special flair, this family friendly music series features free live music at beautiful Heritage Plaza every Thursday from September 7th through the 28th at 7 pm.
This week we welcome Tom Rigney and Flambeau!
Tom Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist/composer, joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a band that will tear the roof off of anyplace that has one and raise the spirits of everyone around. Flambeau showcases Rigney’s passionate, virtuoso fiddling, his commanding stage presence, his range, depth, and originality as a composer, and of course, his notorious red boots.
Flambeau specializes in fiery Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes. Their high-energy live show features tight ensemble playing, deeply infectious grooves, and spectacular soloing. Most of the repertoire is composed by Rigney, but they also mix in a few classics from the Cajun/zydeco/New Orleans songbook. And if, along the way, you pick up a trace of Rigney’s Irish roots or a little Swing and roots Rock and Roll, it just makes the musical gumbo that much tastier. Tom Rigney is a true American original and his great band, Flambeau, is truly one of the hottest bands on the American Roots Music scene. This is a band you have to hear!
