Tom Rigney and Flambeau
Please note, this event has expired.
One of the premier blues & roots music violinists in the world, Rigney and his band of all stars have forged a unique sound that blends American Roots Styles into something original and HOT!
Tom Rigney is one of the premier Roots Music fiddle players on the planet. His band — Flambeau — specializes in blazing Cajun two-steps, low-down Blues, funky New Orleans grooves, Boogie Woogie piano, and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes.
Much of their repertoire is composed by Rigney, but they mix in a few classics from the Cajun/New Orleans songbook. Along the way you may pick up a trace of Rigney’s Irish roots, or echoes of Eastern Europe — it just makes the musical gumbo that much tastier.
Flambeau showcases Rigney’s fiery, virtuoso fiddling, his charismatic stage presence and his range and originality as a composer. He and Flambeau have forged a unique sound that blends American Roots Styles into something original and HOT — mixing irresistible grooves with deep musicality and spectacular soloing. Rigney’s high-energy showmanship pulls the audience into his performances and makes them feel they are part of the music and the show.
“Never less than spellbinding. The eclectic and sizzling music runs the gamut from gritty zydeco and funky blues to New Orleans jazz. The style of playing is consistent, yet varied and extremely melodic; it’s also passionate and, above all, infectious. It’s hard to know whether to be more impressed by Rigney’s playing, his compositions, or the back-up support he gets.” – Paul E. Comeau, DIRTY LINEN
“Tom Rigney is a world-class fiddler–he wields a fiery bow with power, precisions and exquisite taste.” – Jim Beal, Jr., SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
