Twisted Oak Winery Twisted Folk Concert Series tonight presents the unique and legendary Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys.

“All the way from Opelousas, Louisiana – the Zydeco Capital of the World – we are pleased to welcome award-winning accordionist Jeffery Broussard and his Creole Cowboys,” said winery co-owner Jeff Stai. “This band can take you from traditional Creole waltzes all the way to modern Zydeco – dancing all the way.”

A hot dinner will be available for purchase, along with yummy Twisted Oak wine, brownies by Wren Catering, popcorn, and soft drinks. Concertgoers are welcome to bring their own picnics but no outside alcoholic beverages may be brought in.

Seating at Twisted Folk concerts is outdoor festival style, first-come, first-served – bring a low beach-type chair or a blanket. It’s on top of a hill and there is always an evening breeze – it can get a little chilly after dark so plan ahead.

Twisted Oak Winery is located in the foothills of Calaveras County, and specializes in wines made from Mediterranean varieties like Tempranillo, Viognier, and Petite Sirah. The concert venue, located at the winery in Vallecito, sits on a hilltop that commands a sweeping view of the Sierra Nevada and the surrounding foothills, presided over by a 350-year-old California Blue Oak that graces the label of every wine we bottle.

One of the most influential accordionists and vocalists in modern Zydeco music, Jeffery Broussard continues to be one of the genre’s most dynamic performers. He has continually been an innovator, beginning his career with traditional Creole Zydeco music playing drums in his father’s band, Delton Broussard & The Lawtell Playboys, then moving on to develop the nouveau Zydeco sound in Zydeco Force, now returning to the more traditional Zydeco sound with his own band, Jeffery Broussard and The Creole Cowboys.
