Description


Sean Ardoin is an accordion wiz, singer, and songwriter who takes his pedigree in Louisiana’s Creole tradition as a jumping-off point for new approaches. The Ardoin name is Zydeco royalty—four generations ago, Amédé Ardoin was the first Cajun accordionist to record. Today, Sean Ardoin calls his catchy and upbeat genre “Kreole Rock and Soul,” a roots-based sound that embraces and incorporates contemporary pop and classic rock. But as a guardian of Creole culture, he always brings it back to Louisiana. Ardoin will be accompanied on accordion by washboard, drums, guitar, keyboard, and bass.
