The Flatville Aces play traditional Cajun music from south-west Louisiana, a potent mix of fiddle and accordion, French singing and infectious dance rhythms, and feature their strongest line-up to date.
Accordionist Gavin Lewery is admired as one of the finest exponents of the music outside Louisiana. He also fronts the highly regarded Zydeco Diamonds and his compositions have been recorded by several Louisiana musicians.
Fiddler and founder member Jock Tyldesley has played and toured 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.
Andrew Tyldesley provides the strong, rolling rhythm guitar back-up honed to perfection by touring with Eddie Lejeune and Sheryl Cormier.
Bass player and part-time fiddler Vera van Heeringen has also toured with Eddie Lejeune. The Flatville Aces are one of the few bands to feature the smooth, soaring twin fiddle sound.
Andy Watson completes the line-up on drums and percussion, a master of the Louisiana style and the drummer most called upon by UK and US bands to play Cajun and Zydeco music.
