Accordion virtuoso André Thierry lays down soulful, R&B-inspired original Zydeco in English and French. Born into a family deeply rooted in Louisiana French-Creole culture, he is among the best Zydeco musicians today, Gulf Coast and West Coast included. The ensemble plays everything from traditional Creole waltzes to hard driving blues, garnering Grammy nominations and the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame award for Best Zydeco Group (2008 & 2012) along the way. If you like to dance, André will have you moving for sure!
