PUTNEY — Twilight Music begins its 11th annual Twilight On The Tavern Lawn series on Sunday, June 2, with Planet Zydeco.

Zydeco music is characterized by nimble accordion playing backed by a driving rhythm section. For the past 10 years, Planet Zydeco has been bringing this dance hall music of Louisiana to clubs and festivals throughout New England and New York. They are pleased to welcome Cannon Labrie, who also plays with popular Cajun band Yankee Chank, on accordion and vocals. Other members are Peter Petengill and Nick Keil on guitars and vocals, Alan Bradbury on bass and vocals, Doug Plavin on drums, and Suzanne Wozniak on rubboard.

All concerts begin at 5:30 pm in downtown Putney on the Putney Tavern lawn (bring a lawn chair or blanket) or at Next Stage at 15 Kimball Hill in case of rain.

The concerts are free to the public (donations are accepted) and food will be available. For more information visit www.planetzydeco.tripod.com and www.twilightmusic.org.
