RIP Buckwheat Zydeco

RtBE would like to honor the passing of Zydeco legend Buckwheat Zydeco (aka Stanley Dural Jr.) who died today, he was 68. We were first introduced to Buckwheat when he played Alive At Five many years ago in Albany, NY and have enjoyed his music ever since.

Buckwheat was a true legend who embodied the spirit of Louisiana roots music in the form of the engaging Zydeco style. He was a spirit of fun, excitement and musical magic. There is a whole round up of articles on his passing, but we always loved his free wheeling, fun loving sound. Tomorrow we will re-purpose a post from a few years ago to celebrate the man and his sound.

Until then lets appreciate his magic:
