Cajun Music Concert

Performer will also lead workshop

David Greely

On Sunday, July 2, David Greely will lead a two-hour workshop for Cajun fiddlers and vocalists followed by a concert at Tompkins Corners Cultural Center in Putnam Valley. The workshop begins 1:30 p.m. and the concert at 4 p.m.

Greely, the founding fiddler of the Mamou Playboys, focuses on “home music” designed for listening rather than dancing. This allows him to use more archival material and an expanded palette of moods and modes, minor keys and esoteric tunes.

The suggested donation is $20 for the workshop, $15 for the concert, $30 for both, or pay what you can. Reserve a space at The cultural center is located at 729 Peekskill Hollow Road.
