Town of Mansfield, CT
2/9/2017 - 07/18/2017: Sweet Crude | NEW DATE!

Summer Concerts on the Square:
Sweet Crude

Due to the weather, Sweet Crude's performance is postponed until TUESDAY, JULY 18.

Louisiana bilingual pop project Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana's native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks.

Sweet Crude released their latest album, Créatures, in April 2017. This summer, they will perform at a number of festivals, including Solstice (Austin, TX), High Sierra Music Festival (Quincy, CA), and Bonnaroo (Manchester, TN). Their music has received generous amounts of plays nationally and internationally on public, satellite, and internet radio - especially in Francophone areas - and was featured on FX's American Horror Story.




The Summer Concerts on the Square are free and open to the public.

Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket or a small lawn chair. Visitors may purchase refreshments at one of the many great downtown restaurants. Alcohol and all tobacco products (including vaping) are prohibited.
