I like Cajun music and Lil'Jim's set was right on the nail for me. A real feelgood mood.

Watching him, all I could think was 'I wonder who's filling in outside the Derby Poundstretcher this afternoon?'   Tongue

But seriously - it was enjoyable enough and he seemed like a good guy - saw him around the festival field several times over the weekend.

A Highlight for me.I loved R Cajun and the Zydeco Brothers in the 80's and 90's. To see their lead singers son at Cropredy was great.

What a nice bloke to talk to though.

Didn't expect much from him, but he did really well.  Engaged people and drew us in.

Real Cropredy feelgood stuff. I've always thought cajun/zydeco was made for Cropredy. Nice one (and he's the son of an R. Cajun - wow!)

Tough set being on your own at that time, but he held it together and got a few laughs along the way. Great effort and a solid musician. Enjoyed it!

Really enjoyed his set (enough to go and see him again at the Radio Oxford tent). He made a lot of noise for a single musician!

Best cajun at Croppers since Pierre LeRue, I thought!

Missed seeing him, but he sounded really good from Field 2. I'd like more of that Zydeco feel on a sunny Cropredy afternoon.

Really good, but in the end found it a bit repetitive. Wouldn't mind seeing him again though.
