The well-known local group Squeezebox Stompers will play for a dance party at the Northshore UU Church on Friday, September 30. This is the first offering in this year’s Music in the Woods series, and it will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 (under 12 free). There will be complimentary coffee, punch, and snacks; you may bring your own beer, wine, or liquor if you wish.
The Squeezebox Stompers play roadhouse roots music — a unique mix of Cajun, zydeco, Celtic, country, blues, and jazz featuring accordion, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass, and drums. You’ll hear two-steps, Cajun waltzes, Delta blues, hoe-downs, swamp ballads, and original tunes. Brett Cromwell of the Lowell Sun writes:
Listening to the Squeezebox Stompers is like taking a walk through the streets of the French Quarter. The Stompers keep the dance floor busy with their trademark Louisiana sound . . . They are a refreshing change of pace in New England, a long way from the warm Bourbon Street vibe they lovingly conjure with every performance.
