The Folsom Historic District’s Summer Twilight Concert continues this Thursday evening. This week will mark the second of 13 weeks of live music to take place in the Zittel Family Amphitheatre in the heart of the Historic District with the talents of Tom Rigney and Flambeau bringing their energetic show to the outdoor statge.

Tom Rigney and Flambeau bring their blazing performance to the stage, 

Tom Rigney is one of the premier American Roots Music fiddle players on the planet. His band, which makes up the “Flambeau,” in the name, specializes in blazing Cajun and zydeco two-steps, along with a mix of what they call low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, boogie woogie piano, heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes.  

Much of the repertoire is composed by Rigney, but they mix in some classics from the Cajun/New Orleans songbook. Along the way you may pick up a trace of Rigney’s Irish roots, or echoes of folk music styles–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 a part of the music and the show.

The 2024 music series presented by Historic Folsom and Willamette Wineworks with a number of supporting sponsors that make it all possible. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and continues for two hours. An early arrival to the amphitheater is suggested to reserve a spot, guests are urged to bring low-backed chairs that sit close to the ground or picnic blankets. The concert is free for all ages.  For additional information on the concert series visit For more information on Cynthia Renee visit or find her on all social media platforms.
