Music

PUTNEY Twilight on the Tavern Lawn presents Planet Zydeco: Planet Zydeco captures the essence of traditional rural-style accordion-driven dance music as it is played in clubs and dance halls in southwest Louisiana today.

New England-based Planet Zydeco features Cannon Labrie (accordion, vocals), Nick Keil (electric guitar, vocals), Alan Bradbury (bass, vocals), Jack Ezicovich (drums), Michelle Kaminsky (fiddle), and Bonita Weissman (rubboard). The rubboard (frottoir) is made of corrugated metal, worn like a vest, played with spoons or bottle openers, is a rhythmic trademark of the funky, syncopated zydeco sound. 5 p.m. Food available.
