Buckwheat Zydeco

Zydeco might be the most accessible and joyous music most people don’t know anything about (outside of Louisiana), and Buckwheat Zydeco is its greatest living purveyor at age 66. The Lafayette, La., native has toured or recorded with Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, and he has earned a strong cult following locally with his R&B- and funk-infused, accordion-led dance parties at the Dakota and the zoo. He’s a great one for a true Minnesota get-together with old and young music lovers alike. Chris Riemenschneider
