Tom "Big Nick" Nickel, guitar, accordion, fiddle

Performing music has been a life-long endeavor for "Nick". His first memory of a live performance was by way of his mother, playing an old Gibson guitar, which she had purchased during the great depression. ("Nick's" father was less fond of 6-strings and played 4-string Tenor guitar.) Nick has created and performed in numerous bands over his career, the latest having been the now defunct "Big Nick & the Cydecos". He has authored several Cajun Accordion DVD lessons and enjoys traveling to SW Louisiana. Nick is the newest member of the Cajun Strangers having joined the team in late 2010 and will be playing guitar, fiddle and Cajun accordion.
