Growing up in L.A. in the 60’s, Grammy award-winning guitarist Lee Ritenour received a rich cross section of exposure to jazz, rock, and Brazilian music. From one of his first sessions at 16 with the Mamas and Papas to accompanying Lena Horne and Tony Bennett at 18, his forty-year eclectic and storied career is highlighted by a Grammy Award win for his 1986 collaboration with Dave Grusin, Harlequin, 17 Grammy nominations, numerous #1 spots in guitar polls, and the prestigious “Alumnus of the Year” award from USC. He has recorded over 40 albums, with 35 chart songs, notably the Top 15 hit “Is It You,” which has become a contemporary jazz radio classic.

The depth of jazz has remained with me my whole life. I played a lot of different types of music. Most people probably call me a jazz player, but even when I was a studio player, I was a chameleon. I play anything. I love the power and intensity of the rock mixed in with the sophistication of the jazz.* 

Ritenour was a founding member of Fourplay, the most successful band in contemporary jazz, with keyboardist Bob James, bassist Nathan East, and drummer Harvey Mason. The first Fourplay album spent an unprecedented 33 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart.

Two of the finest roots music fiddle players on the planet — Michael Doucet and Tom Rigney — are joining forces for a series of live performances in Northern California and making a stop at Harris Center in Folsom! Backed by Rigney’s hot band, Flambeau, the show will feature material from their critically acclaimed CD, “Cajun Fandango.” The disc received a Best of Beat nomination as Best Cajun Album of 2016, and was named one of the fifty best Louisiana albums by Offbeat Magazine.

Following their 2016 collaboration — they made a stop in Folsom last November and blew the roof off the joint. They’re coming back for another night of spectacular interplay — it sold out last time; so be sure to get your tickets soon! 

Michael Doucet has been the premier Cajun fiddle player of the past several decades. Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, he has led his band, Beausoleil, for more than forty years (winning two Grammys along the way) and has taken Cajun music out of Louisiana and put it on the stages of the world. He has preserved the music of his culture and expanded its horizons.

Tom Rigney has, over the past several decades, become one of the premier blues and roots music violinists in the world. After fifteen years at the helm of the Swamp Rock band The Sundogs, he put together his current band in 2000 — Tom Rigney and Flambeau, and has toured and recorded extensively ever since. His high-energy, virtuosic playing and his commanding stage presence are hallmarks of Rigney’s performing style.

Following their 2016 “Cajun Fandango” collaboration — they made a stop in Folsom last November and blew the roof off the joint. They’re coming back for another night of spectacular interplay — it sold out last time, so be sure to get your tickets soon!
