Kings of Cajun music,
BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet
"That's my kind of music!"
- Bob Dylan, upon listening to BeauSoleil during the New
Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
For the past 37 years, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet has been
making some of the most potent and popular Cajun music on the
planet. Born out of the rich Acadian ancestry of its members, and
created and driven by bandleader Michael Doucet’s spellbinding
fiddle playing and soulful vocals, BeauSoleil is notorious for bringing
even the most staid audience to its feet. BeauSoleil’s distinctive
sound derives from the distilled spirits of New Orleans jazz, blues
rock, folk, swamp pop, Zydeco, country and bluegrass, captivating
listeners from the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans, to
Carnegie Hall, then all the way across the pond to the Meltdown
Festival in England.
"Cajun music purists admire the fiddler Michael Doucet's
informed command of traditional Cajun music, while those
who just want to party surrender to Beausoleil and boogie
to classic Cajun two-steps, reels and a host of other
rhythmic influences that have made this Grammy-winning
Crescent City outfit one of the most colorful roots bands on
the scene. Bon temps, every time they play. "
