Saturday 9th November Evening Acoustic Stage - Church House

The ‘King of Swamp Stomp’ invites you into his world, dripping with funk, groove and swagger. Armed with a melodeon, a plethora of knowledge about the sounds of Louisiana and a huge dancehall sound. Lil Jim is no slouch, accompanying his melodeon with foot drums, guitar, harmonica and vocals.

Over 25 years of gigs in UK, USA and Europe with appearances on BBC radio and television, Lil Jim opened Fairport’s Cropredy Festival in 2019 to 25,000 people. He was voted “Europe’s Best Accordion Player” and supported artists like Midge Ure, Hayseed Dixie, Marcia Ball, and The Waterboys. He is the son of former member of R. Cajun & the Zydeco Brothers – the band who started the Cajun and Zydeco craze in this country back in the 1980s.
