Regretfully, McTell Fest was notified yesterday by folks working for Buckwheat Zydeco that he will be forced to cancel his appearance at the 2016 festival, May 7.
A personal message to all his fans is included below.
We are adjusting the performance schedule and will post it this afternoon. Sometimes these things happen. We wish Buck what’s important – a speedy recovery. We are already negotiating with his management for an appearance at McTell Fest, 2017!

I hope everyone knows I truly believe that “the show must go on” and I’ve always tried to make that happen. In March I suffered a collapsed lung due to fractured ribs and had to postpone a few shows. I’m always raring to go so Buckwheat Zydeco came back and we played three festivals in April. However, it looks like that it was a little too soon to get up and play a 45 pound accordion! Now, upon doctor’s orders, I’m sorry to say we will need to cancel or postpone some shows in May so that I can allow this condition to heal better.
Sorry folks. But: Buckwheat Zydeco will be back. Soon. And, you can take that to your best bank …
