Live Music on the Lawn with the Squeezebox Stompers Duo!
We are excited to welcome Ralph Tufo and Larry Plitt from Boston area Squeezebox Stompers for a live, outdoor performance on the lawn on Tuesday evening, August 2nd, from 6-7:30, weather permitting (rain date is the following Tuesday, August 9th). Bring your chair or blanket! They will play Americana Roots Music- Cajun, Zydeco, New Orleans Blues, and Originals.
The Squeezebox Stompers are an Americana Roots band. They’ve performed all over New England for the past 15 years. Members of the band have received Boston Music Awards and Songwriting Awards. They are noted for their step-lively up-beat music inspiring audiences to get up and dance.
Ralph plays the accordion, piano, Anglo concertina and Cajun accordion. He was a founding member of the Boogaloo Swamis ,who were 4 time Boston Music Award winners. The Swamis were largely responsible for the introduction of Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orleans music to New England. In addition to performing for over 30 years, Ralph has been a prolific songwriter, with over 50 songs to his credit.
Larry is the proud winner of the 2007 Boston Folk Festival Singer/ Songwriter contest. His playing is rooted in the Piedmont and Delta blues styles and peppered with Cajun, Zydeco, Celtic and classical influences. He loves singing the blues!
Over the past year, the band has recorded 12 videos (ten original songs) which can be seen on their Facebook page.
We thank the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library for sponsoring this concert!
