Sean Ardoin is an American Creole musician and singer. He is grandson of Louisiana Creole music patriarch Alphonse "Bois Sec" Ardoin, son of Creole accordionist and bandleader Lawrence Black Ardoin, and older brother of hip-hop zydeco accordionist Chris Ardoin, with whom he co-led the Zydeco supergroup Double Clutchin'. Sean Ardoin is best known for his album Pullin’, whose title song has often been featured on television, and for the 2009 album How Great Is Your Love, which is considered the first notable Christian Zydeco album. His 2018 album Kreole Rock and Soul was nominated for a GRAMMY in the category "Best Regional Roots Music Album," and Sean was also nominated in the category "Best American Roots Performance" for the song "Kick Rocks." In 2017 he formed the Kreole Hall of Fame in order to recognize and celebrate the contributions of Creoles from Louisiana and the world.
