CAVENDISH, Vt. – The Town of Cavendish presents another in its continuing series of Wednesday evening concerts Aug. 1 at 6 p.m. when Yankee Chank will appear on the Green in Proctorsville.
Yankee Chank is a Vermont group that performs traditional Cajun music from the heart of southwest Louisiana. The French-speaking people of eastern Canada, our immediate neighbor to the north, were the inspiration for the southern Cajuns and thereby inspired Yankee Chank. The band has been performing both Cajun and Zydeco music around Vermont and beyond, using fiddle, accordion, guitar, and bass since 1996. The band’s performances offer a distinctive immersion into this unique regional music.
This concert is coordinated by the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association and is sponsored by Murdock’s Restaurant. All concerts are free and open to the public. Bring a blanket or a chair and a picnic dinner. Join with friends or make new ones. Please help continue this free Wednesday evening tradition in Cavendish. Everyone is welcome.
