<h1 class="tribe-events-single-event-title">Walnut Creek: 2022 Summer Sounds w/ Tom Rigney and Flambeau</h1>

Presented by City of Walnut Creek
on the Rudney Plaza (corner of Locust St & Civic Dr)
select Thursday Evenings, summer 2022

The summer’s hottest outdoor concert series in the East Bay is Summer Sounds on the Rudney Plaza.  All concerts are FREE and perfect for the whole family!

Running Time: approx. 90 minutes, with no intermission

Tom Rigney is one of the premier Roots Music fiddle players on the planet. His band, Tom Rigney and 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 the 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.
