Ryan’s web site – http://www.captainfiddle.com Ryan Thomson has been leading the Crawdad Wranglers band since 1989. This evening concert was recorded several years ago at the village green in Southbridge, Massachusetts. Because of pouring rain during much of the concert, many of the audience members were seated in their automobiles to stay dry, and honked their horns to signify applause. The Crawdad Wranglers continue to perform throughout New England for concerts and cajun/zydeco dances. Contact Ryan Thomson through his web site for booking information. Ryan also teaches accordion and fiddle in workshops, classes, and private lessons. Band members at this concert include: Ryan Thomson – accordion, Brian Richardson – guitar, Steve Brown – drums, Bill – bass, Paul Mangion – rub board and cajun triangle.
