About Sean Ardoin & Zydekool
The Ardoin name is one of the most revered in Zydeco music. Sean's family is truly Zydeco royalty. The family's musical legacy started with the legendary Creole musician Amedee’ Ardoin, the first Louisiana Cajun or Creole accordionist to record; followed by Bois Sec Ardoin, one of the best-known practitioners of the state's rural Creole sound for six decades. The Creole zydeco tradition was carried on by Sean's father, Lawrence "Black" Ardoin and the Ardoin Brothers, and the tradition has been passed on for generations in the Ardoin family from one accordion player to the next including Sean and his younger brother Chris Ardoin. After co-leading the critically-acclaimed Zydeco outfit Double Clutchin' with his younger brother Chris, Sean set out on his own musical journey in 1999. Sean Ardoin & Zydekool's hot brand of dancehall Zydeco has been a fan favorite since 1999, with the group performing everywhere from Carnegie Hall and festivals in Europe to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and even a network television performance on BET's top-rated comedy show Comic View. His music has also been featured on MTV's Road Rules, Real World New Orleans, Fraternity Life and Sorority Life. Sean represents both the rural roots and progressive future of Louisiana's foot-stomping Creole-Zydeco sound like no other artist and he's truly one of Zydeco music's "triple threats." A rare combination of both tradition, talent and creativity, Sean continuously pushes the boundaries of the genre and works hard to keep the tradition alive while carrying on his family's cultural legacy and their influence on American music.
