Clarence Garlow

"Clarence Garlow (February 27, 1911 – July 24, 1986) was an American R&B, jump blues, Texas blues and cajun guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is best known for his recording of the song 'Bon Ton Roula', which was a hit single on the US Billboard R&B chart in 1950. One commentator noted the track as, 'a rhythm and blues laced-zydeco song that helped introduce the Louisiana music form to a national audience.' ... After learning the rudiments of fiddle playing as a youngster, in his teenage years Garlow learned to play both the guitar and accordion. ..."
