Jazz + Blues + R&B

Buckwheat Zydecko

When: Fri., June 27, 7 p.m. 2014

Stanley Dural Jr. just wanted to play the organ. But his dad, who played accordion morning, noon and night, said “If you’re not gonna learn the accordion, you’re not gonna play anything.” And now 30 years later, he’s a master of the instrument. He’s called Buckwheat Zydeco now, of course, and he’s become the face of the fast-paced Louisiana Creole party music that’s called zydeco too. And he’s exported the genre through his many collaborations with high-profile rockers and writers like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Yo La Tengo, Paul Simon and others. Most recently, he appeared in a duet with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on the farewell edition of Fallon’s Late Night on NBC. Check out NUVO's interview with Dural. 21+
