Planet Zydeco at Sandywoods

C—Spotlight—PlanetZydeco

C—Spotlight—PlanetZydecoPlanet Zydeco captures the essence of traditional rural-style, accordion-driven dance music as it is played in zydeco clubs and dance halls in southwest Louisiana. The Planet’s funky syncopated sound includes accordion, twin electric guitars, bass, drums, and rubboard. The rubboard, or frottoir, as it is known in Louisiana, is made of corrugated metal, worn like a vest, and played with spoons or bottle openers, and is a rhythmic trademark of the zydeco sound.
This zydeco concert and dance is part of Celebrate Tiverton, a summer festival that will involve multiple events taking place throughout Tiverton during July 26-28. On Saturday, before the Planet Zydeco concert, Sandywoods will host a free 4:30 p.m. storytelling performance by Christopher and Katherine Carbone, and a summer cookout catered by Acacia Cafe at 5:30 p.m. The cost for the cookout is $10 adults, $5 children. A free stargazing program in the Sandywoods hilltop fields is also scheduled for 8:30 p.m., presented by the Astronomical Society of Southern New England.
