NEW CD RELEASE – Cajun Fandango!
Two of the finest roots music fiddle players in the world—Louisiana’s Michael Doucet and Berkeley’s Tom Rigney have a new CD available NOW! Backed by Flambeau, these two friends dazzle in a spontaneous, virtuosic way. Cajun two-steps to blues, Gypsy and New Orleans grooves, their spectacular interplay set an unforgettable listening (& dancing) experience. Originals, traditionals, instrumental and songs in English & French!
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.
