Yankee Chank performs final CCCA concert

Wednesday, Aug. 16, 5:30 p.m.—CAVENDISH— The Town of Cavendish presents the last in its continuing series of Wednesday evening concerts on Aug. 16 at 5:30 p.m. when Yankee Chank will appear on the Green in Proctorsville. Please note that this concert will start half an hour earlier than other concerts in the series.

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 concert is free and open to the public. Bring a blanket or a chair and a picnic dinner.

The Village Green is located at the corner of Depot St. and Route 131, Cavendish. For information, call 802-226-7736.
