Tom Rigney & Flambeau

When: Tue., Aug. 29, 8-11:30 p.m. 2017

He may have been crowned Emperor of the 2011 Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, but violinist-fiddler-composer and singer Tom Rigney and his band Flambeau have always been royalty at Ashkenaz. When not globetrotting – last year they covered ground from Alaska to Alviso Slough to a Caribbean New Year’s cruise – they hold court here almost monthly, playing Rigney’s own tunes and their usual high-energy mix of Louisiana Cajun, zydeco, New Orleans R&B, and down-home blues favorites. What sets Rigney and Flambeau apart is Rigney’s fresh musical takes on Cajun and zydeco, and other styles.
