The personal and musical story of Lynn August (the Most Powerful Voice in the Zydeco and Blues Nation) is nothing short of amazing and plays out like a classic movie script! Blind since birth, Lynn August was immersed in the musical black Creole culture of Southwest Louisiana (Lafayette). While playing drums for Fats Junior’s band at the legendary Bradford’s White Eagle in Opelousas, Louisiana as an opening act for rock and roll pioneer and legend Esquerita, Lynn August impressed Esquerita so much with his musical talent, that Esquerita made a personal visit to Lynn August’s mother and convinced her that Lynn’s musical talent would be further developed as a drummer in his band. “The Best of Lynn August” has 22 remastered Zydeco and Blues tracks that will keep you dancing for hours!
