The Luddites will bring their “big, bombastic acoustic” sound to downtown Farmington August 5, for the free Rhythmz in Riley Park concert.

Together for 24 years, the group has made several Riley Park appearances. With seven Detroit Music Awards for best Folk/Acoustic Band, the 11-member group has recorded four albums. Their sound includes guitars, horns, drums, cello, mandolin and accordion, along with vocals, in folk, rock, swing, and cabaret styles.

The rain location for this concert is at the First United Methodist Church, across Grand River from Riley Park. No food or drink is allowed inside the church.
