With two Grammy wins (eleven nominations!) and recipient of one of 12 National Heritage Fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, Michael Doucet has been recognized as the premier Cajun fiddle player – preserving the music of his culture and expanding its horizons.
Berkeley-based Tom Rigney has, over the past several decades, become one of the premier blues and roots music violinists in the world. A prolific composer and songwriter, he has released more than a dozen CDs of original songs and instrumental pieces. His three blues violin CDs all climbed to #1 on the XM/Sirius Satellite Radio Bluesville Chart.
The two have teamed up for one of the year’s most exciting releases–Cajun Fandango – which features an eclectic mix of roots music styles, Cajun two-steps and waltzes and soulful, rockin’ blues tunes–played with spontaneity and fire.
Come catch this dynamic duo backed by Tom’s band Flambeau – featuring renowned guitarist Danny Caron, boogie woogie piano queen Caroline Dahl, Steve Parks on bass, and Brent Rapone on drums.
