"THE BEST CAJUN BAND IN THE WORLD" - Garrison Keillor, Prairie Home Companion
Grammy winners and 11-time nominees (including a 2010 nomination for their latest CD "Alligator Purse" Best Zydeco or Cajun Album) BeauSoleil are the best known and most highly respected Cajun band in the world. Over the past 35 years, they have spearheaded a movement that rescued Cajun culture from an almost mythical obscurity and instead catapulted the music to national recognition led by their bandleader and National Heritage Fellow Michael Doucet.
