Gold Hill Winery, 5660 Vineyard Lane in Placerville, will be celebrating the harvest with an outdoor evening concert by Tom Rigney and Flambeau on Saturday, Sept. 28th. The concert will be held in the lower shady meadow, surrounded by vineyards.
Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist and composer joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a band that generates enough heat and energy to ignite a dance floor or lift an audience to its feet.
Now into his second decade as the leader of Flambeau, the flamboyant Rigney has leapt dramatically into the spotlight as a performer and as a composer.
Flambeau showcases his passionate, virtuoso fiddling, his commanding, charismatic stage presence, his range and originality as a composer, and of course, those notorious red boots.
Flambeau specializes in blazing Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, boogie woogie piano and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads.
The public is invited to enjoy an unforgettable night of wine, music and friends at Gold Hill.
Tickets are $25 or $20 for wine club members and can be purchased at Gold Hill Winery or by calling the tasting room at 530-626-6522.
Dinner, beer and wine will be for sale at the concert.
Bring a lawn chair but no pets or ice chests. Rain moves the event to the event building.
