Music on the Plaza- Filé Gumbo (Rockin' Cajun/Zydeco Soul)

Join us for the 13th annual free lunchtime concert series “Music on the Plaza”! Vendor booths will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and live music will go from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

July 26 presents Filé Gumbo!

Long time NW band Filé Gumbo has been at it for 30 years!

While they used the word ‘Zydeco’ in their name to let folks who’d see the listing in the newspaper know that they were going to hear Louisiana sounds on accordion and scrubboard, the band never predominantly played that specific groove, but rather drew a lot of material from New Orleans R&B and Rock ‘n Roll, also playing Cajun music, Swamp Pop, Swamp Blues and Dixieland Jazz as well as a couple Zydeco standards and songs that fit that groove.

Some highlights have included opening shows, performing at festivals over the years plus countless community concerts, the Folklife Festival, weddings, corporate events and other private functions.

With songs as vivid as feature films, local indie-folk duo The Winterlings take listeners on unexpected journeys, soaring with astronauts, hitchhiking in Alaska, fighting beside a female Civil War soldier, and walking deeper into the forest of human existence. PASTE called their January 2016 release, You Are Acres, “a gorgeous follow-up to their stunning debut” (2010’s The Animal Groom), and No Depression called their November 2016 album, Poems That Live As People, “absolutely spellbinding.” 

Featuring male and female lead vocal and harmonies, guitar, violin, banjitar and drums, The Winterlings build bonfires of sound to dance and dream beside.
