Dance Night with Buckwheat Zydeco at the Barns at Wolf Trap

  • The Barns at Wolf Trap

    1645 Trap Rd, Vienna, VA (map)

    38.932094 -77.266191

  • Join us for a rollicking zydeco dance party at the Barns.

    • Led by Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural, Buckwheat Zydeco ignites a feel-good Mardi Gras spirit year round with high-energy rhythms and Creole, funk, and rock flair.
    • In 2009 Buckwheat Zydeco won a GRAMMY Award for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album for Lay Your Burden Down, which Allmusic.com calls “Dural’s most accomplished and mature album yet.”
    • The first zydeco band to be signed on a major label, Buckwheat Zydeco has performed with many fellow legends including Eric Clapton and Willie Nelson and at many esteemed national events, including the closing ceremony of the 1996 summer Olympics in Atlanta and Bill Clinton’s inaugural celebrations.

    This is a general admission event and everyone is to buy their own tickets:

    We will probably meet for dinner in Vienna before the show. Please note in your RSVP if you want to join us for dinner.

    Hey Everyone, I just bought tickets for this dance and when I clicked on Wolf Trap's event desciption to double check the time I learned that it has been cancelled due to health concerns (member of the band, I presume). Refunds will be processed in the next 3 weeks.

    Hi. I am a long time devotee of cajun and zydeco dancing. Buckwheat's "show" is designed to appeal to the general public more than "serious" zydeco dancers. In any event the event sells out so if you intend on going buy your tickets well in advance.
