The Flatville Aces
The Flatville Aces play traditional Cajun music from south-west Louisiana, a potent mix of fiddle and accordion, French singing and infectious dance rhythms. For over 30 years they have been regarded as the most authentic purveyors of Cajun dance music this side of the USA.
Gavin Lewery is admired as one of the finest accordionists outside Louisiana. He fronts the highly regarded Zydeco Diamonds and his compositions have been recorded by several Louisiana musicians. Gavin also hosts the North Shropshire Big Weekend, an annual celebration of Cajun, Creole, Zydeco and Southern music that has become a bijou highlight on the summer festival circuit
Fiddler, singer and founder member Jock Tyldesley learned his craft touring at home and abroad with such US greats as Balfa Toujours and Sheryl Cormier, the “Queen of Cajun Music” as well as accompanying the late, legendary Eddie Lejeune on his last three UK tours.
Vera van Heeringen provides the strong, rolling rhythm guitar back-up honed to perfection by touring with Dirk Powell, Eddie Lejeune, Sheryl Cormier and others, as well as doubling up on fiddle and vocals.
