Native Louisianan Mark Bon Ton St. Mary comes from a long line of famous Creole performers. St. Mary earned his status as the "Delta King" at the Isleton Crawdad Festival. He plays a bluesy zydeco style influenced by accordionist Clifton Chenier. Depending on the venue, he might play pure zydeco, or he might “cut loose,” throwing in “a little R&B, jump, and a little down-and-dirty belly rubbing.”
