The following is an announcement from the Lynnfield Summer Concerts Committee:
The Squeezebox Stompers make their debut at the Lynnfield Library Concerts on the Common series this Wednesday July 25 from 6-8 p.m. (rain date Thursday). This band perfectly captures the sounds of New Orleans with a unique blend of cajun, zydeco, celtic, jazz and blues music.
As veteran performers for more than 25 years, this 5 piece band creates a rockin’ atmosphere with their mix of accordion, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass and drums. Performing Delta blues, swamp ballads, Cajun waltzes, hoe-downs, two-steps and some original tunes they bring Bourbon Street to life here in New England. Various members have distinguished themselves by receiving local music awards.
