Tom Rigney and Flambeau

Cajun Orkestra: American Roots Music led by Violinist, Composer, Cajun Fiddler Tom Rigney

Tom Rigney has been a part of the San Francisco Bay Area roots music scene for more than thirty-five years.

In 2000, after fifteen years as the leader and electrifying violinist of The Sundogs, Tom stepped out on his own with a hot new band, Flambeau.

The repertoire is original, eclectic, passionate, and filled with a musical and emotional intensity that will come as no surprise to followers of Rigney’s career.

The strong Cajun/zydeco influence is still present, as are the irresistible dance grooves that have been his specialty for twenty years. But there is also a deepening of the emotional range of his music and a concentration on creating moving and memorable melodies in a wide range of styles–he has literally become a “singer” on the violin.

The music bursts with the energy of the bayou one minute, turns passionate with a gypsy tune the next; it can raise the roof with a Celtic reel and then touch the heart with a beautiful waltz; it can drive deep into the heart of the Blues or evoke echoes of Eastern Europe or the coast of Spain.

DANNY CARON:  Electric guitar – one of the finest on the blues/roots music circuit

CAROLINE DAHL:  Piano – brings the Boogie Woogie and New Orleans-style, while burning up Cajun and zydeco tunes

STEVE PARKS:  Electric bass – ideal for roots music, with a deep and unerring groove and a big tone

BRENT RAMPONE:  Drums – a powerhouse who plays with clarity, precision, fire and infectious, upbeat grooves
